GIST GDM<br />2<br />The Getting It System Toolkit (GIST) focuses on optimizing workflow by leveraging systems to do more work while reducing the staff time necessary to make informed decisions and process materials. <br />Free<br />Open-source standalone software<br />Customizable configurations<br />Automate evaluation and other processing<br />Streamline decision-making and gifts & deselection workflow – make it easier and faster to move collections in and out of your library…<br />
GIST GDM<br />3<br />GDM is designed to manage and streamline library work-flow for processing gifts and evaluating materials for weeding.<br />How? <br />By automatically gathering useful data for you…using web services data from:<br />Amazon.com, <br />Better World Books, <br />Google Books, <br />Hathi Trust, <br />Index Data,<br />OCLC, <br />And by automating services like printing donor letters, or connecting and searching OCLC Connexion<br />
This is the GDM Gift Interface after you wand in a book’s ISBN (or run a title search)<br />Select Donation Date<br />Select Donor<br />Recommendation based on Conspectus and Weighting<br /><ul><li>Do not keep
Options: Override and Review </li></ul>Wand in ISBN, or OCLC#, or do a Title Search for donation<br />Item Information:<br />Author, title, series title, imprint, LC Call no. & Dewey<br />Item Views:<br /><ul><li>Conspectus (subject analysis)
Book Lists – awards & custom book list alert service</li></ul>Item Information:<br />Amazon Price;<br />Full-text: Google & Hathi Trust;<br />Better World Books acceptance of Library discard<br />Holdings Information:<br /><ul><li>Held Locally – do you hold work (FRBR-ized)
“IDS” or Group 2 is a configurable set of OCLC symbols like consortia or local area. (FRBR-ized)
“NY OCLC ILL Libraries” or Group 3 is a configurable set of OCLC symbols like a state. (FRBR-ized)
Local Catalog link and imprint to compare editions of gift & holdings.
Worldcat Link to the right</li></ul>Conspectus View: is your subject and configurable decision weighting tool<br /><ul><li>Subject analysis matches on LC and Dewey, best matching conspectus values utilized.
Collecting level evaluates item against configurable level of interest in growing the collection in this subject area.
Uniqueness evaluates item against configurable level of interest in duplicating your holdings. (group 2 & 3 holdings matter to weighting, but not uniqueness)
“If Newer Than” limits, by a factor or strictly, by the publication dates of donated works.
“If Older Than” limits, by a factor or strictly, by the publication dates of donated works.
As you process gifts, you can adjust factors and re-caculate the weighting to see the effect on the recommendation.
The navigation bar at the footer allows you to view multiple conspectus values, if applicable.</li></li></ul><li>Installation & documentation: http://gist.idsproject.org<br />5<br />It’s a snap, well, first please read all the documentation before starting the process.<br />
