Rollout

  • We didn’t do any publicity; we just launched it by changing pull down menu default on front page

  • Patterned after Michigan State University

  • We didn’t even name it. It was just “Peak,” the same name we gave our classic Innovative catalog


Our entry point


Keyword Searching as Starting Point

  • More Google-like

  • Works quite well for known-item searching

  • Is much faster than regular catalog

  • Has no limits to result set

  • Our reference librarians have adjusted quite well to new paradigm


Keyword Comparison


Relevancy Ranking

  • Slightly differs from Millennium ranking

  • Priority on title keyword

  • This can be mitigated by the subject refinement


Serials on top: one of the best-kept secrets - Encore bonuses!


Community tagging


Yahoo images

Yahoo pulled this image from our library’s finding aid


Our video problem

  • Who knows what “videorecording” is anyway?


Facets solve our video problem


Links to Inn-Reach (Prospector)


No results limits

  • You could retrieve your entire database if you had a hook!

  • Example: we can retrieve all online records, since our field 856 subfield u is indexed in the keyword index


Search with no limits


All online records


Ultimate Reference Tool

  • Goal: to make searching the OPAC at least as easy as browsing the reference shelves.

  • Reference books going away

  • How can we cope with this?

  • Answer: New scopings: Reference and E-Ref


Scoping – Interaction of Scopes

  • E-Ref scope is also a member of the Internet scope and the Reference scope
