IUG 2021 Virtual Presentation: How to SQL

Learning how to tap into the data in your Sierra system can improve your life in countless ways. If you’ve dabbled at all in writing SQL queries for your Sierra database, you’ve likely benefited from the wisdom and help of Ray Voelker on this listserv. Thanks Ray, for this week’s featured YouTube presentation! This video will be openly available on YouTube for this coming week - great opportunity to share with colleagues who may not have been able to attend the conference!
