Converting from DYNIX to HORIZON

The Library has had several computer systems.  Janet Katz shared this memory, from 2003 or 2004. Verse written by Laurel Prysiazny who oversaw the conversion.

 

SOMEWHERE OVER HORIZON

to the tune of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”

Someday after migration-

Someday soon-

We will all be so happy-

We’ll sing a cheerful tune-

Somewhere over Horizon

Books are due-

And the holds that you place,

They will really come to you.

Where cheerful patrons pay their fines-

And no one covers books with lines-

That’s how it will be.

Someday after migration-

Someday soon-

We will all be so happy-

We’ll sing a cheerful tune.

Where time-out software really works,

And kicks off patrons who are jerks

That’s how it will be.

Where no one steals DVDs

And all the patrons all say “please”

That’s how it will be.

Where City Council gives us cash

And no computers ever crash

That’s how it will be.

(SING THIS VERSE WITH FEELING)

Somewhere after Horizon-

Someday soon-

We will all be so happy-

We’ll sing a cheerful tune…
