With little to no budget increases, buying morematerials was out of the question.Selective Dissemination of Information gives anadded value service.SDI has also opened lines of communication withfaculty and students.
The catalog is not user friendly - especially formultidisciplinary fields:•“New Titles List” is hard to find•Class numbers vary•Tables of contents are unpredictable•Indexing services are delayed
• GeoRef/GeoRef In Process = zero• Academic Search Complete = zero• Web of Knowledge = zero• You get the idea!
Again, budget constraints:Library à la CarteTM is a free, open source productfrom Oregon State Universityhttp://alacarte.library.oregonstate.edu/home.“The Library à la Carte Content Management System(CMS) enables librarians to easily and quickly createdynamic web pages that integrate Web 2.0features, such as chat and RSS feeds, withtraditional library content”
The modules, pages and guides are:•Easy to build•Easy to share with colleagues•Easy to publish•Easy to update
