  • New components in web interfaces
    • faceted browsing – Ex: NC State catalog (uses Endeca), Queens Library (uses AquaBrowser)
    • relevance-ranked results
    • user rating or tagging (Ex: Amazon.com)
    • Embedded reviews and tables of content – Ex: I-Share (uses Syndetics)
    • visual navigation (see again Queens Library)
  • Radio Frequency ID Technology (RFID)
  • E-resource management

ILS Reading Recommendations

Cervone, Frank. "ILS Migration in the 21st Century: Some New Things to Think About This Time Around"  Computers in Libraries  27(7)(July/August 2007): 6-8; 60-62.

  • Annotation by Roy Tennant from Current Cites (mentioned previously) –

Cervone pens a timely and useful article on making the tough transition from one integrated library system to another. Given the current upheaval (some forced, some voluntary) in the ILS market, his advice is timely indeed, and those who are not immediately facing such a migration would nonetheless be wise to pin it to their bulletin board for future use. To rephrase an old quote, there are only two kinds of librarians -- those who have weathered a system migration and those who will. In addition to listing the basic steps of a migration, Cervone includes a summary list of typical tasks and some links to open source web application testing tools. Highly recommended for anyone with an ILS and a future.

link resolver software
Link resolver software

“Link resolver software brings together information about the cited resource, the user, and the library's many subscriptions, policies, and services. For the software to work, the content providers must be willing to participate as Sources (databases or sites that can provide a link from a reference).”

The Lure of Linking: Link resolvers are essential

to getting optimal usage of electronic content

Why OpenURL? D-Lib Magazine, May 2006

Author’s Abstract

The improvement of access to scholarly literature caused by electronic journal publishing quickly led to the wish for seamless linking to referenced articles. This article looks at the evolution of linking technologies with a particular focus on OpenURL, now a NISO standard. The implications for stakeholders in the supply chain are explored, including publishers, intermediaries, libraries and readers. The benefits, expectations and business drivers are examined. The article also highlights some novel, existing and potential future, uses, including increased user-empowerment and possibilities beyond referencing traditional bibliographic material.

Institutional repositories capture and make available as much of the research output of an institution (i.e. a university) as possible. In the first instance this might include material such as research papers and electronic versions of documents such as theses, but may also include many of the digital assets generated by normal campus life, such as administrative documents, course notes, or learning objects.

library 2 0 philosophy
Library 2.0 philosophy
  • One way of thinking about what drives decisions
  • “The heart of Library 2.0 is user-centered change. It is a model for library service thatencourages constant and purposeful change, inviting user participation in the creation of both the physical and the virtual services they want, supported by consistently evaluating services. It also attempts to reach new users and better serve current ones through improved customer-driven offerings.”
  • “What makes a service Library 2.0? Any service, physical or virtual, that successfully reaches users, is evaluated frequently, and makes use of customer input is a Library 2.0 service. Even older, traditional services can be Library 2.0 if criteria are met. Similarly, being new is not enough to make a service Library 2.0.”
