[Classweb-users] Creating and accessing local notes

We are new to Classification Web and want our cataloguers to be able to
create or see local classification notes.
After investigating the ClassWeb User Archive, it appears that we can only
create and see notes by using our administrative username and
password. (This is clear from Cheryl Cooks email to the list in 2003.)
* Is this still so -- for both creating and seeing notes?
* Are there any plans to spit off administrative functions from the
notes creation function?
* How are libraries dealing with this?
Thanks in advance for your advise.
From Cheryl Cook (23 June 2003):
>How were you accessing Class Web? In order to create notes you must
>use your account's administrative username and password. If you use IP
>address access or the read-only password you will not see the "N" on
>The restriction on access to notes was set up because each Class Web
>account only has one notes file. It was thought that institutions would
>prefer to have some control with regard to who makes and changes notes
>to that will display to everyone using that account.
>During Pilot testing most users indicated that they would most likely
>use the notes fields to indicate local cataloging practices which would
>be site-wide concerns.
