- CS Direct. Here you will find notes on new releases of software, Frequently Asked Questions documents focusing on topics of high general interest, Power Point slides illustrating specific components of the software suite used by libraries, tutorials and downloadable software.
- Manual - If you have worked with computers for any length of time, you have heard someone advise, "It is all in the manual... somewhere." The Innovative software manuals, which are available only in electronic form, are available at: http://csdirect.iii.com/manual/ It is essential that library staff familiarize themselves with use of the manual. Though the manual is definitely not a how-to document, it does answer questions about specific functions and pages..
An ID and password are required for access to both the manual and CS Direct. Staff at participating libraries may obtain the ID and password by sending email to James.JacksonSanborn@maine.edu
