  • Union catalogue - ContributorsCore of the National Libraries & academic libraries.Last couple of years widened out to a much broader range of institutions Copac is currently undergoing a complete transformation. Some changes were introduced last year, others are underway at the moment, with more to follow.

    Copac: National, Academic, and Specialist Library Catalogue FIL 29/06/10
  • 12. You can now login to Copac (institutional login or create your own). If you login Copac:
    • saves all of your searches,
    • 13. allows you to create online bibiliographies
    • 14. shows you the latest journals table of contents.
  • Search history is a record of your research.

    • 15. You can also re-run and edit searches.
  • My References is a bibliography of records, which you have marked in your search results.
    • You can export records from here.
  • If you register your library catalogue’s z39.50 details with IESR we can try and include an option to search your own catalogue at the same time as Copac.

  • 17. Copac reengineering
    • New software
    • 18. New architecture

    • 20. New ‘Work level’ deduplication
    Copac: National, Academic, and Specialist Library Catalogue FIL 29/06/10
  • 21. An example of one of the new developments.
    This illustrates the potential for introducing facets so you can navigate large result sets more effectively. What facets we display will be something to review with users when we redevelop the interface.
    This is a test version without deduplication or presentation stylesheet.
  • 22. ‘Work’ level deduplication
    The current deduplication that focuses on merging records for the same document held in different institutions.
    • This will continue, but in addition we are exploring work level deduplication
    • 23. Work level deduplication would (try to) bring together all the records relating to a specific work.
    • 24. The biggest impact would be for the relatively small number of works that exist in many forms.
    For example:
    Pride and prejudice : national stereotypes in 19th and 20th century Europe east to west / editor, LászlóKontler 1995. (1 record)
    Pride and prejudice / Jane Austen (734 records)
    Electronic (20) Book (630)
    Audio book (10) Video/film (60)
    Music score (50) Sound recording (20)
