Critz: A View from the Trenches

GIL-FIND, the open source library resource portal, was integrated with Voyager at 6 pilot sites. Library staff at these sites are now using GIL-FIND in their daily interactions with students and faculty. This presentation will explore the use of GIL-FIND in reference and instructional settings . Instructional videos/tutorials, LibGuides pages, help tips, and reference anecdotes will be shared and discussed. Marketing initiatives employed to introduce GIL-FIND to our users, as well as surveys and usability tests conducted to assess the features/functionality of the GIL-FIND interface will also be showcased. Come hear how GIL-FIND has gotten our library OPAC to meet Web 2.0!

Critz: CrossSearch at the Crossroads

The implementation of CrossSearch, at the Georgia Tech Library, was a team effort between technical services and public services personnel to blend vendor-based (MetaLib) and open source (Xerxes) software into a customized federated search product. The presentation will focus on 4 areas of this implementation: technical installation, configuration and subsequent interface customization; the process for developing a list of databases and subject categories; promotional efforts – including embedding within existing research tools and campus course management systems; and hands-on usability testing with students across campus. Future implications, in light of new developments with the Primo interface, will also be discussed.

Hampton: Current Trends in Circulation

Today’s academic library is not the 70’s or 80’s academic library. Today’s academic library has forever been changed by the Millennial Generation. No longer do students come to the library just to check out a book. Instead, the Net Generation wants laptops, camcorders, and, of course, Twitter. The circulation desk provides more support than ever before such as help with spreadsheets; supplying cables for the projector and laptop; how to make copies; etc. With the present economic climate, what new trends can we offer our students? This panel will, no doubt, present a lively discussion (audience participation encouraged) on how circulation can offer more and more technology to the Net Generation.

Marquardt: Series Basics: A Beginner’s Look at Series

Series Basics: A beginner’s look at series will define series, giving examples of the various types of common series. A quick overview of the continued importance of series in the catalog will be provided. The presentation will look at fields in the bibliographic record that are used to record series information. Information in series authority records will be explained. The presentation will be based on Voyager examples and will include searching, viewing, and editing within the system.

Grant: Ex Libris Company Update

Carl Grant, President of Ex Libris NA will share the latest on Ex Libris company initiatives and major features scheduled for all of the Ex Libris products. There are a lot of exciting projects in the works, so join Carl to hear the latest on Ex Libris plans.
