Secrets of the Save File: Using Connexion and Microsoft Access for Efficient Batch Cataloging Projects
By Rebecca B. French

Or hoped for a way to confidently match those search results to existing metadata from your ILS without handling each record one by one? These tasks and more are all possible by working directly with the Microsoft Access database underlying Connexion’s local save file.
