Upgrade Update for Horizon System
The HIP Upgrade Committee is now forming. This committee will
assist the DALNET office in testing the HIP upgrade installation and in
creating documentation outlining the various changes in HIP for the
upgrade. After an initial face-to-face meeting it is anticipated
that the committee will complete much of its work online. If you
are interested in serving on this committee, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
An informational handout with a bulleted list explaining the upgrade of
Horizon and HIP
is available here: Upgrade
. A demonstration of HIP 3.21 will be given in
March. Please see the Events Calendar for more information.
Celebrates Women's History Month
month of March is Women's History Month and, to celebrate, the DALNET
office has created a new online collection called the “Distinguished
American Women Collection.” It includes 90 freely accessible

the 1920s, both fiction and non-fiction. Members may include the
collection in their online catalogs. Some authors in the
collection are Jane Addams, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Ida Wells-Barnett,
Sojourner Truth, Edith Wharton, Helen Keller, Margaret Sanger, and
Elizabeth Cady Stanton. To view the entire collection, visit: http://tinyurl.com/DAmWoCo
Neurosurgery Department Digitizes Slide Collection
Brandon Parker, a research/editorial assistant in the Wayne State
University School of Medicine's Department of Neurosurgery, has
completed a slide digitization project for the department. Parker
used DALNET’s Digital Lab to convert a large collection of
carousel-style slides to digital format. In addition to the
slide/negative converter in the lab, there are also LP, audiocassette,
and videocassette converters, as well as two book scanners.
DALNET members may call Kristy Wells at 313-577-0234, with questions
about the lab, or to schedule an appointment to use the lab.
you know that most Microsoft Windows shortcuts work in Horizon?
The shortcuts can be especially useful in the MARC editor for cutting,
pasting, and copying content. The DALNET office has
created a Horizon Keyboard Shortcuts handout that can be downloaded
