BIBCO stats contributors: The pending files look good! Thanks for responding to the April 8 deadline.
A few questions surfaced, but none call for worry or embarrassment:
1. Is there a problem if I forget to fill in the box "Month + year included in this report?"
No, this isn't a problem. The software doesn't read this box. It just takes data reported during this time period and assigns it to the column that it's filling each month.
2. Is it a problem if I report Printed books in a Full/Core split, even though we've moved to a BIBCO Standard Record (BSR)?
No, it's not a big problem. Our traditional forms include Full and Core, but our PCC Stats displays add them together.
3. Will the BIBCO form have a BSR category added?
Perhaps in the future, but probably not in this transitional year.
