ELUNA Learns Discovery Session Q & A 

The product has evolved and improved significantly since I last saw a demonstration.  What features have you found most exciting in recent years? 

Ruth Pickering:  We’ve added huge amounts of content over the past few years.  I’m excited by the breadth of content and the OA coverage we’ve achieved.  I am also pleased that we now include 41 OA news sources that are updated daily. 

Have any of your customers studied the impact of the yewno system on usage of print or online resources?  If so, what types of impact have they seen? 

Ruth Pickering:  Yewno is designed to fit into the existing ecosystem but to provide significantly different content results due to the full text indexing which helps find previously undiscovered content. I am not aware that anyone has studied the impact on print or other online resources but that would certainly be an interesting project! 

Does Yewno require a subscription? 

Ruth Pickering:  Yes, Yewno is a subscription product. 

Jason – was there any data loss when translating your local XML to Dublin Core? Was there anything you couldn’t translate at all, or the way you wanted to? 

Jason Griffith:  There were some fields that did not translate well. For the information in those fields, I used normalization rules to map content to Local Display Fields in Alma. For example – there isn’t a Dublin Core field for “funders” and that information was contained in our Generic XML file. I wrote a normalization rule to copy the information from that field and mapped it to a Local Display Field so that information could be displayed in Primo. 

Can you share a link to your collection so we can see how it functions in the public view?
