Abstract: This presentation will discuss Syracuse University Library’s invoice interface with our university’s fund accounting system. Interfacing is the way two independent, automated systems meet and communicate with each other. Our Library is on the NOTIS system, and our acquisitions subsystem has been in place since July, 1991. Our accounting office uses a vendored system from Walker Interactive Products, which handles the accounts payable component of that system. Our acronym for the system is CAPPS, which stands for Computerized Accounts Payable Purchasing System. Prior to July, 1991, we had a locally developed system, which did, indeed, interface with the accounting office as well. We therefore had some previous experience in this area that could be applied to the NOTIS environment, but of course much needed to be modified. We interface with our accounting office on a weekly basis in the areas of invoice payment and vendor input and update. Many of the NOTIS reports that we run, are fairly standard, and as a result it is not necessary to discuss many of them in detail. However, many reports are special to Syracuse University in terms of our interface, and it is on those which we intend to concentrate.
