  • Union catalogue - ContributorsCore of the National Libraries &amp; 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. Today I want to start by giving you a flavour of some of these changes, then we’ll be asking for your input into the future redevelopment of the service.

    21. 21. An example of one of the new developments. <br />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.<br />This is a test version without deduplication or presentation stylesheet.<br />
    22. 22. ‘Work’ level deduplication<br />The current deduplication that focuses on merging records for the same document held in different institutions. <br /><ul><li> This will continue, but in addition we are exploring work level deduplication
    23. 23. Work level deduplication would (try to) bring together all the records relating to a specific work.
    24. 24. The biggest impact would be for the relatively small number of works that exist in many forms. </li></ul>For example: <br />Pride and prejudice : national stereotypes in 19th and 20th century Europe east to west / editor, LászlóKontler 1995. (1 record)<br />Pride and prejudice / Jane Austen (734 records)<br /> Electronic (20) Book (630) <br /> Audio book (10) Video/film (60) <br /> Music score (50) Sound recording (20) <br /> Language: [English (670)] Date: [2001-2010 (30)] <br /> Institution: [Aberdeen (20)] <br />Copac: National, Academic, and Specialist Library Catalogue FIL 29/06/10<br />
