This is an ongoing list of issues that need to be addressed

clients for exported records so that it matches the Voyager clients’ Import
Folders/Files entry (under Preferences).
MacroExpress (where tbd).
workstations that are used to print spine label and are also used for Acq,
Cat or Circ load the Spine label printing client and establish ODBC connection.
workstations dedicated to printing spine labels, load just the Spine label
