We now have a Koha test PAC (online catalog for patrons) available for you to use to try out Koha searching, patron account management features, lists, etc. The test PAC is called a "sandbox," meaning that it's there to "play" in. So feel free to dive in and start playing. Don't worry about breaking anything! The sandbox contains SCLS data that was extracted from Dynix. The data is three months old, so anything that has changed in Dynix in the past three months will not be in the sandbox.

The web site for the sandbox PAC is http://scls.sandbox.kohalibrary.com. I have set up a test login that can be used to log in to the patron account features of the PAC. You can search the PAC without logging in, but you can use this login to place holds, create private lists, etc. The login information is:
