Video recordings of past webinars are available at http://www.surpasssupport.com/webinar. Check out the topic on Inventory and End-of-Year Tasks. Those “End of Year” tasks covered happen in between school years, whether you complete them at the end of the previous year or at the beginning of the new year. You may also want to watch Surpass Central for Beginners if you are new to Surpass or need a review of the basics (cataloging, printing labels, circulating, etc.), or Customizing Safari for advice on sprucing up your public catalog for students and teachers!
