4.0 Interface Orientation Brought to you by
Objectives By the end of this session we hope you’ll… … understand the reason for the migration; … be aware of the timeline for switching to the new staff/user interface at your library; … understand what the new features in the search interface are and how they work; … understand the options for customising the staff/user interface for your library; … feel prepared to share this information with other staff at your library and your users.
OutLookOnLine is… • A union database of resources held at BC public and post-secondary libraries; • A search portal which simultaneously searches the union database and virtual targets via Z39.50; • An integrated ILL management platform used by most libraries.
Why are we migrating? Auto-Graphics will be discontinuing all older interfaces on July 1, 2014 AGent ILL = SHAREit
What’s different? • Change to overall look and feel • Major enhancements to the search interface • Clustering of search results to facilitate requesting • Migration of the underlying architecture to improve speed, HTML 5 for device flexibility • Improved mapping of Z39.50 resources not in the union database
Migration Timeline • April/May set-up of branding and system defaults • Orientation, staged migration and support through May/June • All libraries must be migrated by June 30, 2014
Next steps… • Use the SHAREit 4.0 Set-up Guide to guide you through the process. • Modify library defaults via your library admin account if desired OR leave as defaults. • Train other ILL/public service staff using this orientation & script as needed. • Test! • Change to the new URLs on your website and staff workstations. • That’s it!
