Please summarize for the list .  I have been receiving numerous requests
from outside agencies for "expertise" on setting up small collections. I
had thought of Microsoft Access also and would be interested in any
reaction on that.  The programs which we use as hospital librarians are
often overkill when it comes to the needs of community groups. I thought
if they already have Windows, which most of them do, getting Microsoft
Access makes sense.  Paradox is also supposed to be good, but I haven't
had any experience with it.
