Rollout

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

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

Ultimate reference tool

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

Scoping – Interaction of Scopes

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