Autodocs: Software for Federal Depository Libraries

Autodocs is an electronic check-in and shelflist system designed to be used with Microsoft Access 97 or later. It allows one to download an electronic shipping list to check-in and shelflist receipts without keying in shipping list data. There is a method of handling items that regularly arrive without a shipping list. Labels are generated only at the end of the session, not at the end of each shipping list, thereby reducing the number of wasted blank labels. with Autodocs 1.3, I have built in Stan Price's algorithm for sorting correctly by Sudoc number.
