The City has reviewed its files and has located responsive records to your request.  Please log in to the Records Center at the following LINK to retrieve the appropriate response. (https://mycusthelp.com/PALOALTOCA/_rs/RequestEdit.aspx?rid=981&coid=)
Please note, the file titled, econtent_bibs_created_fy16_and_fy17_(after_Sierra_mid_Feb_2016).xlsx includes records provided by Hoopla and due to the Patron-Driven-Acquisitions model Hoopla offers, all of the titles shown in the file have not necessarily paid for if a patron has not selected the item. Hoopla invoices do not list purchases at the title level.
The library catalog was migrated from Horizon (Sirsi-Dynix) to Sierra (Innovative Interfaces) in mid-February 2016. For the records purchased prior to the February 2016 Sierra migration, covering the July 2015-February 2016 timeframe, paper invoices are available for inspection onsite. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment to view these records, please respond to this message.
If you have any questions, or wish to discuss this further, please contact me.
