Hi friends,
   I am about to send in the shelflist from my elementary
library to have it converted to the Athena automation system.
This is my first time automating, and I want to save myself as
much work next fall as possible.  I would like to have as much
entered in through the retrospective conversion process as I
can.
   My question:  In order to have students easily see reading
levels for titles when they search, where/how should I have the
company doing my retrospective conversion enter in the reading
level data?  (It doesn't correstpond exactly with the reading
levels that publishers give, and I want the exact levels,
according to the Accelerated Reading tests ...)  What is the
best place to have that data entered, so students can search by
reading level?
   This is a question I will ask the Athena  tech support
people, but I wanted to ask this group, too, because I'm sure
some of you have insight into this!  I know this is a busy time
for us all (when is it not, in this profession???), but need
some advice.
   Thanks a lot in advance for any insight into this you can
give me.  Please email me directly with any information you care
to share.
