Transcript

  • 1.  
  • 2. DEVELOPMENTS IN ACCESS TO ART INFORMATION
    • ARLIS Conference April 2002
    • Rose Holley
    • Digital Projects Librarian
    • University of Auckland
  • 3. Overview
    • How can we improve access and delivery of art resources?
    • Current delivery at University of Auckland
    • Future developments in resource delivery, searching and navigation.
  • 4. Core Digital Resources
    • In 2001 we spent $4.5 million on digital resources = 36.5% of budget
    • Used by 34,000 students and staff
    • Accessed 24 hours day x 7 days week
    • Relied on by academic staff to support teaching
    • Student expectations for delivery and content are high
  • 5. The Digital Pie
  • 6. Increased usage of LEARN website
  • 7. How LEARN works
    • Library Homepage = LEARN
    • Gateway to accessing all library resources
    • Directory listing of resources
    • Consists of 5000 static webpages
    • Resources arranged by subject and A-Z listing
  • 8. Cont.
    • ‘ Resources by Subject’ maintained by subject librarians
    • LEARN maintained by Digital Services Department
    • Interface recently re-designed
    • IP authentication – proxy + Netaccount
  • 9.  
  • 10.  
  • 11.  
  • 12. We now want
    • Smarter way to access and manage these resources
    • We strive to maintain a high quality service and constantly look for ways to improve
    • At present users have to search multiple times, know multiple interfaces and know how resources fit together
  • 13. Current Searching Image Collections Websites (millions) Databases (300) E-Journals (10,000) Library Catalogues
  • 14. Future search Search and Navigation Interface Image Collections Websites Databases E-Journals Library Catalogues
  • 15. The solution and next step ….
    • A portal type model:
    • single point of access for consolidating information from disparate sources
    • It would enable:
    • single search interface across multiple data types and databases
    • And:
    • better management of resources
  • 16. New concepts for Navigation Searching Managing Digital Resources
  • 17. Benefits - Users
    • Don’t need knowledge of resources first
    • Find resources they didn’t know existed
    • Single search interface to access all resources, and single results screen with records de-duped (‘Google style’)
    • Flexibility to personalise the search interface to suit subject needs
    • Option to go direct to specific resource and search in native interface instead for experienced users
  • 18. Benefits - staff
    • Efficient management of resources
    • Dynamic delivery
    • Reduction in webpage maintenance
    • Single description creation
    • Rights management
    • Authentication
  • 19. Challenges
    • Authentication
    • Rights Management
    • Implementation and maintenance
    • Training issues:
      • New search concept
      • New method of navigation
      • Customisation ‘my library’
  • 20. And……
    • Finding software that will do this!!
    • We use Endeavor Information Systems software - Voyager Catalogue
    • Take a closer look at their new product ‘ENCompass for Resource Access’
    • Still under development but promising future …
  • 21. Other Customers
    • National Library
    • Cornell University
    • Getty Research Institute
    • Kansas State University
  • 22. Our requirements
    • Unified interface and native interfaces
    • Simple and advanced search
    • Customisable search and results interfaces
    • Personalisation for users
    • View merged results or by source
  • 23.  
  • 24.  
  • 25.  
  • 26. Search for ‘wildflowers’
  • 27.  
  • 28.  
  • 29.  
  • 30.  
  • 31.  
  • 32. How it works behind the scenes
    • XSL for customisation of interfaces
    • Multi-protocol searching (Z39.50, http, XML gateways)
    • Hierarchy structure – objects  container  collection  repository
    • Oracle database stores repository metadata and digital objects using XML
    • Multiple metadata schemas supported (DC, EAD, TEI) ability to crosswalk
  • 33. Our role as Info Professionals
    • Improve access and management to our digital resources
    • Current awareness – remaining up-to date with latest software developments
    • Innovation – search for new ideas of delivery and access
    • Co-operation – work with each other to achieve interopability of systems by using standards
  • 34. The future
    • Creating digital content was the first step
    • Organising our collections and providing easy access to digital resources is the next step
    • Future developments in ‘portal type’ software models could radically improve access to art information
