Transcript of "Integrating Local Expertise into Virtual Libraries and Discovery Systems"

  1. 1. Integrating Local Expertise into Virtual Libraries and Discovery Systems Simeon Warner (Cornell University Library)describing work mostly of other people, the two key teams being: CuLLR team Discovery and Access, ● Adam Chandler Integration Layer Team ● John Cline ● Simeon Warner ● Jeremy Cusker ● Glen Wiley ● Dianne Dietrich ● Rick Silterra ● Michael Engle ● Keith Jenkins ● Holly Mistlebauer ● Jon Corson-Rikert ● Jim Reidy ● Mira Myhre ● Marty Schlabach ● Dianne Dietrich ● Leah Solla ● Dean Krafftsimeon.warner@cornell.edu, Fall CNI Membership Meeting 2011-12-12

  5. 5. Experience with virtual library 1.0?● Specialized lists considered useful● Very painful to update (~ 3200 hand entered and updated items for the Physical Sciences Library)● Does not leverage information in catalog (search either local items or whole catalog)
  6. 6. CuLLR data flow and components CuLLR = Curated List of Library Resources
  7. 7. First stage is general... PLOP = Persistent Library Object Pages
  8. 8. ...and then for each virtual library
  9. 9. Expectations for virtual library 2.0? ● More functional as can relatively easily define a large subset of items in the catalog as relevant ● Less painful to update. Significant effort to minimize manual work updating ● May want ability to add items not in catalog ● Dont yet know how similarly different virtual libraries will use CuLLR
  10. 10. Centralized Discovery and Access Facilities at Cornell● Goal is to provide “one search box” as a starting point for searches over all items● Recent decision to purchase Summon● Roll out first as article search replacing EBSCOhost (January 2012)● Expect to integrate catalog and other sources (e.g. eCommons) but not everything
  11. 11. Approach● Include what we can and what works in Summon (expect at least articles, catalog, IR)● Use additional result panes as necessary● Create system that gives overview with links to more specialized searches● Surface local resources and local expertise● Enable semantic queries
  12. 12. IntegrationLayer
  13. 13. Open question● How do we use information from disciplinary virtual libraries in the central discovery and access system? ● Inherent tension between local and global ● Wont know user area initially, might infer likely area from query/results ● How do we deal with possibly conflicting information about one resource as “used” in multiple virtual libraries?
  14. 14. Multiple panes vs one result setPanes One result set● Easier to implement ● Simpler to understand● Shows space of possible ● Uniform interface for all results things● Avoid trying to rank apples ● More efficient use of and oranges together screen real estate
