Three Common Questions

 


When there are as many people who use our bulletin resources on the J. S. Paluch Subscriber Resource Center (SRC) as we have, there are bound to be questions that come up fairly regularly. Here are three of the most common questions we receive, along with our answers. Remember, if you have a question about the resources on the SRC, you can always feel free to ask us, and we’ll be sure to answer you quickly and thoroughly.

Q: Can we use the images and other resources that I find on the SRC in our parish newsletter (or other publication, or parish web site)?

A: Yes, you can use anything that your find on the SRC for any parish publication, including your web site, as long as you don’t charge anything for it, and as long as you include the copyright/credit line with the image or article in your publication.

Q: I’m working ahead, and I don’t see any photo covers for X date. Can you help me?

A: This kind of question often arises around the holidays when bulletin editors are trying to get ahead by more than a month. In some cases, it comes up because bulletin editors are accustomed to finding the covers they need under the Photo Covers tab. While this is a quick and handy way to get to the covers you want, by design it is limited to covers for only the next four weeks, so that it doesn’t get too unwieldy. If you need a cover for more than four weeks away, chances are that you can find it if you go to the All Resources tab select a date under the Choose a Sunday drop-down. You might also bear in mind that most of our resources are available for the whole year, but some, like the dated photo covers, are posted only six to eight weeks in advance.

Q: Do you have an image or article for this occasion, or saint, or topic?

A: Sometimes you can do a very thorough search and just not come up with the thing you are looking for. Maybe it’s buried under an obscure key word or maybe we just don’t have it. When that happens, please contact your trainer and we will either help you find it (then update our key words to make the item easier to find) or work to get that item posted to the SRC as fast as possible. Much as we pride ourselves on our vast collection of resources, sometimes we just don’t have the thing that you are looking for, so we will do our best to provide it for you as soon as you ask. And then it will be there for others to use as well.

Never hesitate to ask us a question. If we don't have the answer right away, we will find it for you. Your questions help us to grow and improve. Some of the best resources and features that we have are there because somebody asked for them.
