More search terminology l.jpg

More Search Terminology

  • Boolean operators – Logical connectors for keyword searching (AND, OR, NOT)

  • Metadata – data that describes documents, used for online retrieval


Full text searching l.jpg

Full-text Searching

  • Does the OPAC allow full-text searching?


Resource sharing l.jpg

Resource Sharing

  • Check local library

  • Check other branches

  • Check consortium partners if there are any – consortial borrowing

  • Request ILL – interlibrary loan

  • Take advantage of universal borrowing at a nearby library


Local library l.jpg

Local Library

  • How do you check your local library?

  • Use the OPAC

  • CCSF


Other branches l.jpg

Other Branches

  • How do you check other locations or branches at your library?

  • Use the OPAC

  • How do you get the desired material delivered to your branch?

  • Hold/Request process

  • CCSF


Consortial borrowing l.jpg

Consortial Borrowing

  • How do you check consortial partner libraries?

  • In a shared catalog environment such as PLS, use the OPAC and the Request/Hold function.

  • Other systems require another level of searching. Try Link+ from SFPL, an example of Direct Consortial Borrowing


Interlibrary loan l.jpg

Interlibrary Loan

  • How do you request an ILL?

  • Some libraries allow online submissions, others require a paper form.

  • http://sfpl.org/librarylocations/main/illbookstop.htm

  • Some libraries use an ILS ILL module

  • Some libraries allow unmediated requests


Universal borrowing l.jpg

Universal Borrowing

  • California has a system of universal borrowing.

  • Participating public libraries get reimbursed by the State for lending to California residents who live in other jurisdictions.

  • How do you find the nearest public library with an item you want?

  • California Libraries Catalog – CalCat: union catalog for California


Other terminology l.jpg

Other Terminology

  • Ariel – software for document transmission, faster and clearer than a FAX without the phone call

  • Consortium – an organization of separate libraries that share resourcesor develop joint purchasing agreements

  • Document delivery – delivery of requested documents such as articles or book chapters


Ill terms l.jpg

ILL Terms

  • net lenders – large libraries tend to lend more than they borrow

  • net borrowers – smaller libraries tend to borrow more than they lend

  • Other factors

    • Depth of collections

    • ILL policies


Ill services l.jpg

ILL Services

  • OCLC – largest in the US

    • WorldCat - CalCat


Mediation l.jpg

Mediation

  • Unmediated – saves staff time and delivers self-service for patrons. Parameters can be set to automatically reject specific classes of requests.

  • Mediated – allows more human control; requires more staff time. Requires patron to work through staff.
