Introduction to GIL for Beginners
Endeavor and GIL Staff
A workshop designed to provide an overview of Endeavor's Voyager System for library staff and the GIL Environment. Topics to include a basic understanding of MFHDs in Voyager, the integrated Voyager environment, Support Web as well as USG (GIL) processes and support.
The Universal Catalog: Structure and Searching
An overview of the Universal Catalog: updates, the duplicate detection process, searching, and relation to Universal Borrowing.
On and Off Campus Support for the Distant Learner (Panel)
This panel presentation will explore how Reference Departments often find themselves assisting distant learners who are not affiliated with their own institutions. While GIL Express has forced libraries to examine affiliation identity and issues with an eye to long term consequences of lending materials, other issues are also of concern. First, communication with the distant learner is an enormous hurdle. Who is responsible for getting these students into the home institution's patron database? If they are not entered what library privileges do these students have? Second, more communication between the Access Services Departments and the Reference Departments about policies is needed. Third, user training responsibilities are often lost in the confusion. Who should be instructing these students in use of GIL, GALILEO, and other resources? Should this be done one-on-one or through a distance learning class?
Privacy, SSN, and the USA Patriot Act
This session will discuss the basics of the USA Patriot Act and issues regarding SSN, and responses and procedures that libraries should employ to respond to issues of privacy as it relates to GIL.
The West Georgia Article Locator
State University of West Georgia
Demonstration of a web application that helps users search for journal holdings available online, on the shelf, and at other libraries. A framed cgi application, the Article Locator searches using an article citation passed from an EBSCOhost results list or using a journal title from direct user input. The Article Locator can carry over a full EBSCOhost citation for use in an ILL request if the user desires. Some technical discussion of underlying perl, but mostly a demonstration.
Using Placeware to Communicate with Your Service Site Coordinator
Identifying and Recording Special Collection Materials in GIL
Cataloging special collections materials is often a challenging and unique experience. Many of us share methods, yet differences exist. Selecting items for inclusion in the GIL catalog is often a "process" due to budget constraints and other considerations. How to get them on GIL is also another commitment of time and resources. This session will walk you through a step-by-step procedure for selecting, preparing, and recording materials in GIL.
12:00 - 1 pm Lunch
GIL Express Part II: Troubleshooting - Auditorium
Using Voyager's Acquisitions Module in a Small College Library
This session will explore strategies for implementing Voyager's Acquisitions module in a library that has a staff with less than twelve people.
Binding Module: Demo

This session will provide an overview of WebCT and discuss the potential for integrating courseware with library resources (GIL and GALILEO).
Inventory and GIL
Coastal Georgia Community College

Reports for Dummies
GIL Service Site Coordinator, University of Georgia
This session is aimed at non-systems people who are interested in creating statistical reports. Participants will learn how to run various reports not requiring technical expertise. The reports discussed will cover a wide range of Voyager functions.
Special Collections and Reference in Today's Digital Age
Presenter Panel - GSU, GCSU, UGA, GIT, MCG
Users are able to locate a wide variety and assortment of special collections materials using GIL. Represented in this session are three unique archives with special collections covering a variety of topics and materials. From remote user to the face-to-face desk encounter, providing reference services to patrons in the archives is often a unique and interesting experience. Learn about the various types of access points for these special collections, outreach programs that have proved successful in promoting them, and the use of GIL in this process.
