    E. New databases, to be accessed from the WebPACs?

    1. Text-only page is
      http://www.co.marin.ca.us/depts/LB/main/databasestext.html
    2. Printable version from website is at
      http://www.co.marin.ca.us/library/databases.cfm?print=yes&
    3. Either URL could be appended to a shortcut to Public Browser on the WebPAC desktop
    4. The WebPAC's No Access list has to be modified, to permit access to www.co.marin.ca.us (see MARINet catalog's Member Libraries page)
    5. The "NoAccess.txt" would have to permit www.co.marin.ca.us, but deny countylibrary.marin.org. This will work, unless MARINet updates the Member Libraries page someday.
  3. Training and informational issues raised:
