Transcript

  • 1. Changes to the Library Catalogue and the introduction of Summon
  • 2. The Changes
    Clicking on the link to the Library Catalogue takes you straight to the search page
    There are now just three tabs on the catalogue: Library Catalogue, My Account/Renewals and Help
    Some of the terminology used on the catalogue has been changed to make things easier for users to understand
  • 3. Clicking on the link to the Library Catalogue takes you straight to the search page.
    Number of tabs reduced
    Global Keyword has become General Keyword. This is the default search. It works in the same way as before.
  • 4. The Go Button is Green. The limit explanations are easier to understand and you can sort results A-Z by title, Author or date
  • 5. The bibliographical screen now shows the number of Requests and Copies available. There are logos for Bookshops on the left hand side.
  • 6. Copy/Holding information Changes on the Bibliographical screen
    Location has become Campus. Shelved at is for the shelf number, Location is for the floor or collection and Loan Type for loan category. There are changes to the status of books too.
  • 7. Changes to Status of Books
    Not on Loan has changed to Available
    Shelving Trolley has changed to Recently Returned
  • 8. Changes to the My Account Feature: this has become My Account/Renewals to alert students to the renewal function
  • 9. Account Summary replaces Account Overview, Currently Borrowed (and Borrowed) replaces Items Out (and Checked Out), Requests replaces Hold Requests and Holds, Fines/Messages replaces Fines/Blocks. My Details replaces profile
  • 10. Summon
    Summon is a new product which is an upgrade of a product we have (Multisearch)
    It allows users to search the library catalogue, online databases and journals in one search.
    It will be soft launched in October 2010 and we hope to launch it more publicly in January 2011.
    It will appear on the Learning Resources page shortly.
    Multisearch will remain there too for the near future.
  • 11. Summon
    We don’t have a working product at the moment but if you wish to have a look at how it has been used in another University Library you may look at Huddersfield University’s version.
