    Is the USR00 library needed?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23

    We have changed our $usr_library and $pw_library in aleph_start from USR00 to our own library. This means that we don't need to have a USR00 library, correct?

    We suggest, to avoid possible overlaying of your own patron or password data in the course of an upgrade, that USR00 not be specified as the usr_library or pw_library in aleph_start.

    Nevetheless, USR00 is *always* used as the usr_library and pw_library for DEMO_LIBS libraries: usm50, uni50, etc. -- and the vir01 library. This is hard-coded in the programs. It needs to be there -- in the a-tree -- because, without it, you and we will be unable to log on to any of the USMnn libraries in the GUI for testing/comparison with your libraries.
