Wednesday 5/9/2012  |  4:00-5:00pm  |  Hilton – Salon I  |  Ex Libris  |  B.3.02

Presented by: Asaf Kline (Ex Libris Software Architect)

Abstract: Increasingly under pressure to demonstrate their value to the objectives of the institution or consortium, libraries are looking for ever more creative ways to improve efficiency and productivity. Powerful analytic capabilities enable libraries to put numbers on their value and to expose tangible evidence of their leading role in the academic lifecycle. From usage data and onwards, analytics shed light on the inner workings of the entire institution, as well as those of the library. Valuable insight into libraries’ operation can be gained via purchasing trends, comparative analysis, and even predictive analysis—helping managers to better to plan their daily operation. During this session will explore ways in which Alma Analytics can take libraries into the next generation.

EAD Tool and Rosetta/Primo Integration: What we’ve done and where we’re going

Wednesday 5/9/2012  |  4:00-5:00pm  |  Hilton – Canyon B  |  General Track  |  B.3.05

Presented by: Max Evans (LDS Church History Library)

Abstract: Encoded Archival Description (EAD) is an xml standard for archival finding aids. It is used to describe archives and manuscript collections at the collection level and at each of several nested component levels. The Church History Department has developed an EAD tool for the production of EAD finding aids and for the public delivering of each. Our challenge is to integrate EAD with Primo and with Rosetta. We must be able allow the researcher to (1) discover and display the finding aid using Aleph and Primo; (2) discover each EAD component and display it in context; and use collections by (3) initiating paging calls for physical manifestations of their parts, or by requesting digital manifestations by either (4) placing a digitization-on-demand call or (5) viewing any existing digital in Rosetta. We will demonstrate how this will work once we complete the integration.

I used data to prove book theft but . . .

Wednesday 5/9/2012  |  4:00-5:00pm  |  Hilton – Seminar Theater  |  General Track  |  B.3.06

Presented by: Jan Sung (University of Hawaii at Manoa)

Abstract: Last summer, 200+ books were stolen from the UH at Manoa Library. The theft was discovered after an antiquarian bookdealer inquired about books offered to him for sale. Circulation records could not be used as evidence because the theft went unwitnessed. However, we believe the theft was the result of a flaw in our service, which led to several questions including whether the service should be kept, knowing that it could lead to more thefts.

Making Primo Normalization rules work for our library

Wednesday 5/9/2012  |  4:00-5:00pm  |  Hilton – Salon III  |  Primo Track  |  B.3.07

Presented by: Chris Erickson (BYU)

Abstract: A discussion of the Normalization Rules review process that we have established to help library staff understand Primo displays and the rules behind them and why that may be different from the ILS system. Primo support staff and librarians from several different areas meet regularly to review the normalization rules, mapping tables, and displays in order to understand the design implications and explore possible changes.  This helps staff and patrons locate materials effectively.

Wednesday 5/9/2012  |  4:00-5:00pm  |  Hilton – Canyon C  |  Primo Track  |  B.3.08

Presented by: Scott Hanrath (University of Kansas Libraries)

Abstract: I will share mid-stream lessons learned from our implementation of Primo at the University of Kansas. In particular I will highlight (with moderate technical detail) how we: harvested data from a not-quite compliant OAI-PHM source, automated institutional holdings updates from a non-SFX link resolver, ported UI add-ons from our catalog interface to Primo (e.g., stacks maps and locations, a request link for our Aeon special collections request system), made grateful use of and modified code from EL Commons CodeShare, and reached out to our Libraries Instructional Services staff to help our Libraries staff engage with Primo and provide our implementation team with feedback.

Wednesday 5/9/2012  |  4:00-5:00pm  |  Hilton – Canyon A  |  Primo Track  |  B.3.09

Presented by: Alison Hitchens (University of Waterloo Library)

Abstract: Learn how we used Primo’s RPT00 views to create reports with IBM Cognos Impromptu and an OLAP cube (On-line Analytical Processing) with IBM Cognos PowerPlay. See how the data in the cube can be analyzed and examples of the Impromptu reports. We will discuss how we configured the cube and how we worked with Ex Libris Support to determine the meaning of some RPT00 data. This presentation will also cover using Google Analytics to supplement Cognos.

Bringing it all together in Primo: Discovery across disparate types of digital content

Wednesday 5/9/2012  |  5:15-6:15pm  |  Hilton – Canyon B  |  Primo Track  |  B.4.02

Presented by: Sandra McIntyre (Utah Academic Library Consortium); Tracy Medley (University of Utah); Ian Godfrey (University of Utah)

Abstract: The Primo implementation at the University of Utah has created successful unified discovery for a wide range of digital content types: bibliographic records (Aleph), e-resources (SFX), Primo Central, Course Reserves, and digital collections from consortial partners (CONTENTdm, BEPress, ArchivalWare, and others). Bringing together these disparate content types has required adaptations to vocabulary, normalization rules, display options, and workflows. This process has forged a new understanding of how best to serve today’s university students and faculty with integrated discovery.

E-books in SFX

Wednesday 5/9/2012  |  5:15-6:15pm  |  Hilton – Topaz  |  SFX/bX Track  |  B.4.03

Presented by: Grace Liu (University of Windsor)

Abstract: In 2011, the University of Windsor Leddy Library started an e-book project that aimed to address the issues related to bibliographic control and access to this type of resources. In this project, e-books have been activated or created as local records as appropriate in SFX and a link to their associated records in SFX have been established in the library catalogue, the Conifer (the Canadian version of Evergreen ILS) OPAC. This presentation will share our experience and approaches to issues and challenges that we encountered in this project.

Building a Tabbed Search for the Library

Thursday 5/10/2012  |  9:00-10:00am  |  Hilton – Seminar Theater  |  Voyager Track  |  B.6.02

Presented by: Zoe Friedlander (Margaret Herrick Library)

Abstract: Do you have multiple electronic resources but no way to search across them? Are your patrons confused about their search options? One way to give an “at-a-glance” view of your library’s resources is to present patrons with a tabbed search box. Though they may still need to search different resources, you can provide them with a clear view of just what your resources are. Our library uses Voyager from Ex Libris, Inmagic DBTextWorks for SQL, and CONTENTdm; we also want to let users search our Web site. Rather than throw search boxes all around the page, we are building a tabbed search to present all the options together. This presentation shows you how to do the same.

Ebookmobile: Delivering Subject-Specific Ebooks to Your Inbox

Thursday 5/10/2012  |  9:00-10:00am  |  SPCC – 150D  |  Voyager Track  |  B.6.03

Presented by: Kathryn Lybarger (University of Kentucky)

Abstract: Today’s users are overloaded by the massive amount of information available to them, even within their own library’s collection. Ebooks cataloged in batches of hundreds (or thousands) make a generic new ebook shelf prohibitively large and mostly uninteresting to a subject researcher. The Ebookmobile helps researchers become aware of new ebooks in the library collection in their specific area of interest, so they can start using them immediately. Ebookmobile checks the Voyager database daily for newly cataloged ebooks and creates feeds for ranges in a classification scheme. Researchers can choose to receive a daily e-mail or subscribe to an RSS feed using their e-mail client or feed reader. Subject librarians may include such feeds on LibGuides as self-updating new ebook shelves.


Thursday 5/10/2012  |  9:00-10:00am  |  Hilton – Salon I  |  General Track  |  B.6.04

Importing Finding Aids into Primo at the University of Iowa Libraries

Thursday 5/10/2012  |  9:00-10:00am  |  Hilton – Canyon A  |  Primo Track  |  B.6.05

Presented by: John Osborn (University of Iowa Libraries); Sue Julich (University of Iowa Libraries); Ellen Jones (University of Iowa Libraries)

Abstract: At the University of Iowa Libraries, we’ve undertaken a project to convert all of our Finding Aids from web pages to Archon. The data requires quite a bit of manipulation — from HTML to Archon to EAD to Dublin Core before it is ingested into Primo. We’ll talk about some the issues we faced and the solutions we’ve found.

One-Step Record Loading: Creating a Single Aleph Service to Load Electronic Books

Thursday 5/10/2012  |  9:00-10:00am  |  SPCC – 150A  |  Aleph Track  |  B.6.06

Presented by: Mike Rogers (University of Tennessee)

Abstract: This presentation will explain how we created a single custom service in Aleph that prepares and loads new files of electronic book records having different loading conditions and from a variety of vendors. Prior to this, our staff performed a couple dozen steps and ran numerous individual Aleph services in order to prepare and load one record file, which sometimes took hours to complete. Over time the backlog of electronic book files grew larger as our e-book purchasing expanded, since the record loading could not keep pace. I will briefly cover the various steps that our staff followed for loading e-books into Aleph, then explain in detail how the new loader incorporates the various steps in a flexible, much more efficient manner. Features highlighted will include the use of system variables, different fix routines based on the presence of a call number, whether or not to run character conversion on the records, whether to perform global updates, file renaming and archiving, etc. This presentation will be formatted as a “how to” guide that explains how each step in the loader works and the rationale for configuring it the way we did.

Preparing a Special Collections Library for a temporary move to remote storage.

Thursday 5/10/2012  |  9:00-10:00am  |  Hilton – Salon II  |  General Track  |  B.6.07

Presented by: Gwyneth Duncan (Duke University)

Abstract: Our Special Collections Library unexpectedly was given funding for a complete renovation. We have a bit more than a year to get the existing facility emptied. Most of the collection needs to be moved to off-site storage, which requires all items have barcodes. A fair amount of the collection isn’t even in the online catalog, let alone barcoded. This talk will address the effort to get the material ready to move and the Aleph support that is involved in the process.

What’s the forecast? How to avoid downpours when moving services to the cloud.

Thursday 5/10/2012  |  9:00-10:00am  |  Hilton – Topaz  |  General Track  |  B.6.12

Presented by: Kate Montgomery (Tulane University); Gena George (Tulane University); Jeannette Thompson (Tulane University)

Abstract: In 2011, Tulane University was still running Voyager on a 2004 server. Needing to upgrade and replace our server, we were planning a summer upgrade when we investigated moving to the cloud rather than continuing to host our own server. The decision was made to move not only our ILS, but also our other Ex Libris products to hosted services, so during the summer of 2011, Tulane University moved Voyager, SFX, and MetaLib products to the cloud – all under Ex Libris’s Direct Care level of service. These moves had to be at least partially complete prior to our implementation of Primo, so we were on an accelerated schedule and were handling multiple projects at the same time. In the presentation, we will discuss the process involved in moving each of these services, how we organized each of the moves, what worked and what didn’t, issues we are still trying to resolve, and our suggestions on planning for those interested in moving to the cloud.

Library Express – Using Document Delivery of ILLiad in the Voyager Catalog

Thursday 5/10/2012  |  10:30am-12:00pm  |  SPCC – 150A  |  Voyager Track  |  B.7.04

Presented by: Todd King (Eastern Kentucky University Libraries)

Abstract: In the Voyager Catalog at Eastern Kentucky University, we have added a button, called “Get It,” next to the item status that gives patrons the option to request that particular item. When clicked, the item’s Open URL information is sent to ILLiad for the user to place a request. To the user, it is a quick and seamless process; for our staff, it is an involved process to complete the request and get the item to a pickup location for the patron to get. But, using ILLiad helps us track the requests and communicate with the patron. By placing the service in the catalog, we can offer the delivery of books to the patron, even if the item is there on the shelf already. With help from shared code, we are able to offer this new and exciting service for our patrons. This presentation will cover not only the code setup and how it works in the catalog and with ILLiad, but also some behind-the-scenes looks at how we deal with the requests once they come in. If you’ve ever thought about offering such a service at your library, then we can share what we’ve done to help you get started with your own, “Library Express.”

ScholarRank, The Primo Relevance Ranking Technology

Thursday 5/10/2012  |  10:30am-12:00pm  |  Hilton – Salon I  |  Ex Libris  |  B.7.12

Presented by: Tamar Sadeh, PhD (Ex Libris Director of Marketing)

Abstract: The greatest challenge for discovery systems is providing users with the most relevant search results out of the immense landscape of content. Similar to human interaction between two parties, where people adjust in tone, language, and subject matter, discovery systems need to “understand” the user’s context as well as the materials’ scholarly value. The session will describe Ex Libris Primo’s approach to relevance ranking. In addition to employing traditional information-retrieval methods that have been adapted to scholarly data, ScholarRank takes into account the intrinsic academic value of materials along with information about the user and the user’s research needs.

Embedding RSS Feeds from Aleph into Library Research Guides

Thursday 5/10/2012  |  1:30-2:30pm  |  SPCC – 150A  |  Aleph Track  |  B.8.06

Presented by: Mike Rogers (University of Tennessee)

Abstract: Library Research Guides are a popular tool for connecting students and faculty with research materials. This presentation will explain how we created a customized set of “new item” RSS feeds from Aleph and subsequently embedded those feeds into subject librarians’ Research Guide pages. I will review the process and steps for creating the RSS feeds using the SQL-to-XML method and explain the mechanics behind how the feeds work. Then I will show a couple different examples of how our subject librarians have opted to display the RSS feeds in their LibGuide webpages. Finally, I will explain how we integrated a deep link to our Primo instance with the “dlSearch.do” syntax as part of the feed so that users can click on an item and be taken immediately to the record in Primo.

Empower Library Staff (just a little) with Voyager’s WebAdmin

Thursday 5/10/2012  |  1:30-2:30pm  |  SPCC – 150F  |  Voyager Track  |  B.8.07

Presented by: Janice Christopher (Univ. of Connecticut)

Abstract: Do you need Voyager batch jobs on demand? Do you harbor a secret desire to ”do stuff” that only your systems librarian does? Voyager provides an easy-to-use web interface, WebAdmin, that allows library staff to run server batch jobs for Acq, Cat, Circ, and OPAC; load and extract bibs; and view job output, all without the need for command-line access to the server. Busy systems staff can benefit, too. Come find out how!

Implementing Primo: a Holistic Approach

Thursday 5/10/2012  |  4:15-5:15pm  |  Hilton – Salon III  |  Primo Track  |  B.9.06

Presented by: Kate Montgomery (Tulane University); Gena George (Tulane University)

Abstract: During the summer of 2011, Tulane University moved its ILS, OpenURL link resolver, and federated search servers to the cloud. While we were working on the move to the cloud, we also started our implementation of Primo. With so many projects going on at the same time, we had to involve a large group from across the library in order to get Primo live by the start of the fall semester. In this presentation we will talk about how we organized the overall project in coordination with the move of our other systems, the tasks involved, our customizations for the user interface and the Back Office, marketing and publicity considerations, training, and what we’ve learned from usability testing. We will also discuss what proceeded as planned, problems and issues that arose, and give suggestions so others can learn from our experiences.

Loading Records using Aleph Services

Thursday 5/10/2012  |  4:15-5:15pm  |  SPCC – 150A  |  Aleph Track  |  B.9.08

Presented by: Betsy Friesen (University of Minnesota, Twin Cities); Jane Aitkens (McGill University); William Jones (New York University)

Abstract: Several loaders are available for staff use in Aleph. P-file-96 has been used for years to load records with embedded order data. Some institutions use it to create holdings, while others use different services for this purpose. In the last few years, Aleph libraries have utilized p-file-90, the advanced loader, to do more complex holdings, items, and order creation. Join us to learn about these and other services, their tables, and use of scripts to join multiple services together.

Managing bulk loads of records for electronic materials in a consortial environment

Thursday 5/10/2012  |  4:15-5:15pm  |  SPCC – 150F  |  Voyager Track  |  B.9.09

Presented by: Shelley Ramberg (The University of Montana); Teressa Keenan (The University of Montana)

Abstract: Our consortia started bulk loading electronic resources when those collections were small and simple. Since then, the collections (and processes) have become increasingly complex. This session will cover some of the problems we’ve encountered, some of the decisions we wish we’d made earlier (or made differently), some of the tools we’ve found invaluable, and the methods we’ve used for cleanup and ongoing maintenance of our electronic resource collection/s.

Online Aleph Training at Harvard Using Adobe Captivate

Thursday 5/10/2012  |  4:15-5:15pm  |  Hilton – Salon II  |  General Track  |  B.9.12

Presented by: Hank Sway (Harvard University); Alison Thornton (Harvard University)

Abstract: Harvard University has undertaken a long-term project to create online tutorials for each Aleph module using Adobe Captivate. The goal of this project is improve access to Aleph training for a large library staff with differing levels of experience, while reducing the number of in-person training sessions offered. In this session, we will outline our process for creating the online tutorials, from scripting to production and deployment. We will also share a number of best practices we have discovered, and address some software quirks rising from the interaction between Aleph and Captivate. Our session will focus on the Cataloging module, but the lessons learned can be applied to creating online tutorials for any Aleph module, or even other Ex Libris products.

Primo: traversing the patron puzzle

Thursday 5/10/2012  |  4:15-5:15pm  |  Hilton – Seminar Theater  |  Aleph Track  |  B.9.13

Presented by: Sue Harmer (University of NSW)

Abstract: UNSW’s goal is to provide patrons with a single Primo user interface to all Ex Libris applications. We want our patrons to confidently access all aspects of their account from one place. Additionally the Library wants to streamline the analysis of usage data for an holistic view of application use and trends. The main challenge has been to migrate patron data from Aleph and MetaLib to Primo. A second challenge has been the coordinated deletion of expired patron data from Aleph, MetaLib and Primo. In this presentation we will outline UNSW’s methodology for patron management across the 3 applications and the degree to which it meets our goals.

Thursday 5/10/2012  |  4:15-5:15pm  |  Hilton – Canyon B  |  Primo Track  |  B.9.14

Presented by: Dale Poulter (Vanderbilt)

Abstract: Searching in Primo is a simple process for users, but what actually happens when the search button is clicked. The presentation will discuss searching Primo Central, the local index, MetaLib, and SFX (with umlaut). The focus will be on the search process and the processing of the results to the user. Several questions will be answered including why does Primo Central not dedup with local resources. The target audience for this session will be staff that utilize and teach Primo. This will be a general discussion of Primo and not focused on configuration.

Banner and Bursar: A match made in … somewhere!

Friday 5/11/2012  |  9:00-10:30am  |  Hilton – Seminar Theater  |  Voyager Track  |  B.10.03

Presented by: F. Tracy Farmer (Arkansas State University)

Abstract: A few years ago our library was allowed to collect fines/fees at our circulation points. Then the campus experienced a series of misappropriations of money. The required campus money collection procedures to be changed; all money now has to be collected at the campus cashier window. Because of this we had to develop a way to process our fines/fees electronically to be loaded into the campus’ ERP system, Banner, to be charged to our students.

Creating custom ALEPH services to help manage patron records

Friday 5/11/2012  |  9:00-10:30am  |  SPCC – 150A  |  Aleph Track  |  B.10.04

Presented by: Steven Bischof (Five Colleges Inc.)

Abstract: This presentation will discuss the construction of custom services to select and edit patron records, which helps streamline the management of patron data. These services use a combination of SQL and shell scripting to extract and then edit the patron records. Another custom circulation service is a customization of cash_05, which allows the user to select specific patron statuses and specific transactions to be included in the output of the report. This custom service uses SQL to select a list of transactions and then passes this information on to standard Aleph COBOL routines to complete the service.

Primo at Northwestern – Story of Local Development and ELCommons

Friday 5/11/2012  |  9:00-10:30am  |  Hilton – Topaz  |  Primo Track  |  B.10.09

Presented by: Michael North (Northwestern University); Geoff Morse (Northwestern University)

Abstract: Development of the Northwestern Primo environment has been the result of “out of the box” installation, combined with our own local development, as well as utilizing the developments posted on ELCommons by other Primo developers. We will share our initial installation of Primo, show what “development enhancements” we have performed ourselves, and then show what developments we have implemented that we obtained from ELCommons. Our local developments will include our Blackboard/Primo integration environment, our two different Primo User Interfaces (Primo App provided and our Locally Developed Interfaces), our unique solution to further enhance FRBR-ization, and our mobile Primo environment. We will conclude with a tour of ELCommons and demonstrate how an institution can use ELCommons to further enhance their Library Primo environment. Audience: beginning to moderate Primo sites.

Primo Polish: User Study Findings and Implementations

Friday 5/11/2012  |  9:00-10:30am  |  SPCC – 150D  |  Primo Track  |  B.10.10

Presented by: Colt Pini (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints); Josh Parry (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints)

Abstract: We performed a user study that returned very interesting and informative results. We will be presenting on (briefly) the methods of the user study and (in detail) on the findings and the way we implemented the results. This study resulted in a dramatic paradigm shift in the way the media was presented to the user to streamline work flow and minimize disruption and includes making Primo a responsive (mobile supported) web application.

Processing MARCIt! file: the “Single Record” approach at UT Arlington Library

Friday 5/11/2012  |  9:00-10:30am  |  Hilton – Canyon B  |  SFX/bX Track  |  B.10.11

Presented by: Haoyang “Peter” Zhang (UT Arlington Library)

Abstract: MARCIt! provides enhanced MARC records for electronic journals in SFX. While some libraries choose to have multiple bibliographic records by format for a journal, UT Arlington Library has been using the “Single Record” approach where each journal has a single bibliographic record regardless of format. Both electronic and print holdings are attached to the same bibliographic record. This presentation discusses how the MARCIt file is processed, bulk imported to Voyager, and reviewed under such approach.

Rosetta: One year later

Friday 5/11/2012  |  9:00-10:30am  |  Hilton – Salon II  |  Rosetta Track  |  B.10.12

Presented by: Edward M. Corrado (Binghamton University Libraries); Sandy Card (Binghamton University Libraries)

Abstract: Librarians from Binghamton University will talk about their experience using the Rosetta Digital Preservation System. Last year, Binghamton presented about their first 5 months using the software. In 2012, they will follow up on last years presentation and share some of the things that they learned that will help librarians who are or may be considering implementing Rosetta. Although this session is geared towards Rosetta, much of the content will be useful for anyone considering a digital preservation solution.

Creating customizable financial reports using Microsoft Access

Friday 5/11/2012  |  11:00am-12:00pm  |  Hilton – Topaz  |  Voyager Track  |  B.11.05

Presented by: Denita Hampton (Georgia State University); Stella Richardson (Georgia Tech Institute)

Abstract: Creating useful fines and fees reports can be challenging. Georgia Tech Library uses a standard server report that runs automatically and cannot be edited. Georgia State University Library developed a report using Access queries. Their final report displays in an Excel spreadsheet that can be easily edited. In this session, we will compare these two different processes and discuss pros and cons of each.

Discovery versus Precision: A Comparison of Known Item Searching in Primo and Aleph

Friday 5/11/2012  |  11:00am-12:00pm  |  SPCC – 150G  |  Primo Track  |  B.11.06

Presented by: Steve R. Thomas (Univ. of Tennessee, Knoxville)

Abstract: Anecdotal reports from our public services librarians suggest that searching within our new discovery system (Primo) is not as effective – for known items – as searching in our traditional catalog (Aleph). This project prepares a list of titles (from the MARC 245 field) for a randomly selected set of records and then compares the results searching these titles in Aleph using (1) title browse, (2) title keyword, and (3) general keyword with searching Primo using (1) my exact phrase in title, (2) my query words in title, and (3) my query words anywhere in the record.

From the ground to the cloud – Emory Libraries’ integrated core technologies implementation

Friday 5/11/2012  |  11:00am-12:00pm  |  Hilton – Salon I  |  General Track  |  B.11.07

Presented by: Heather Williams (Emory University); Mike Mitchell (Emory University)

Abstract: In an effort to provide a seamless interface to the richness of Emory’s resources, the Libraries began migrating its core services “from the ground to the cloud” in the Fall of 2010. Over a 12 month period, we upgraded our SFX and Primo instances, migrated our ILS system from Sirsi Symphony to Aleph, and moved them all to ExLibris hosting. We will share our motivation, the details of our experience, and the many lessons-learned.

Implementing Primo and SFX in One Shot as a Total Care Customer

Friday 5/11/2012  |  11:00am-12:00pm  |  Hilton – Canyon A  |  Primo Track  |  B.11.08

Presented by: Regina Koury (Idaho State University Library); Cheryl Sebold (Idaho State University Library); Janet Warnke (Idaho State University Library)

Abstract: Step one, step two, step three… done! Not that easy! At Idaho State University we switched from EBSCO A-Z and link resolver to SFX. We also replaced our Voyager server, upgraded from 6.5.1 to 8.1, and implemented Primo. This presentation will discuss our workflow, what we wished we knew before the switch, and lessons learned.

KB update reports including conversion to Excel format

Friday 5/11/2012  |  11:00am-12:00pm  |  Hilton – Canyon B  |  SFX/bX Track  |  B.11.09

Presented by: Rich Wenger (MIT)

Abstract: The KB Update Reports generated by SFX do not include all the information that we require. We are developing some scripts that enhance the reports in various ways: by SQL lookup, by reading and cross-referencing other spreadsheets, by introducing color in strategic ways, and by converting the enhanced report records to Excel format so librarians do not need to import text files into Excel. This session will explain the processing of the reports and show examples.

Navigating the Workflows of Shelf-Ready, Embedded Order-Data, and EDI Invoicing: A Comparison of How to Make Vendors’ Unique Online Ordering Systems Play Nice with Voyager

Friday 5/11/2012  |  11:00am-12:00pm  |  SPCC – 150D  |  Voyager Track  |  B.11.10

Presented by: Felicity Brown (American University Library)

Abstract: American University has transitioned from Blackwell, to Coutts, and most recently to Yankee Book Peddler in setting up shelf-ready workflows, using EOD and EDI through vendors’ online ordering systems. In Acquisitions, streamlining workflows is critical to controlling would-be chaos. This presentation will demonstrate how we’ve navigated these different vendors’ online ordering systems, and have convinced the vendors to adapt to our workflows, rather than having to tailor our workflows to them.

There’s a Map for That: Discovering Discovery Tools

Friday 5/11/2012  |  11:00am-12:00pm  |  Hilton – Salon II  |  MetaLib Track  |  B.11.11

Presented by: Lauren Fancher (GALILEO, USG); Bob Trotter (GALILEO, USG, UGA); Ken Henslee (GALILEO, USG)

Abstract: GALILEO, Georgia’s Virtual Library, has been collaborating with its member institutions on a number of discovery tool implementations, including EBSCO Discovery Service, Summon, Primo, and MetaLib Plus. Each product has strengths and weaknesses, including different tools for both mapping sources of metadata into the central index and also shaping the results. Join staff members of the GALILEO initiative in this review of their experiences and findings of these rapidly evolving products.

The VIK and UTIL: “Vroom” Your Voyager Upgrade and Service Packs

Friday 5/11/2012  |  11:00am-12:00pm  |  Hilton – Seminar Theater  |  Ex Libris  |  B.11.12

Presented by: Adam Zimmerman (Ex Libris Product Integration and Packaging Team Lead)

Abstract: The Voyager Installation Kit (VIK) provides libraries with a fast and easy way to perform their own upgrades to the latest release of Voyager on the day and time of their choosing. Starting in Voyager 8.1.0, the UTIL menu provides menu-driven tools to perform service-pack installation, basic Voyager server administration including keyword regens, as well as basic Oracle administration. Audience members will learn what both the VIK and UTIL menus do and how they work together. You will also gain an understanding of what you should know when you run these tools yourself. Adam will give a live demonstration of both menus.

Voyager ILL, Ariel, Rapid, and DCB Data Unified on the My Account Page

Friday 5/11/2012  |  11:00am-12:00pm  |  SPCC – 150A  |  Voyager Track  |  B.11.13

Presented by: Ken Herold (Hamilton College)

Abstract: Hamilton College combines data from Voyager ILL, Ariel Document Delivery, RAPID ILL, and ConnectNY, a consortial union catalog using INN-Reach, into a single reporting section of requests and direct PDF delivery on the My account page in Tomcat Web Voyage. Not a how-to for others to emulate exactly, the demonstration illustrates the power of open architecture for personalized services in Voyager. We employ XSLT, PHP, and Perl using our own Apache 2 instance to integrate data from Oracle, MS Access, and web services.

Changing the Channel: Bringing Primo Central API Content into VuFind

Friday 5/11/2012  |  1:00-1:30pm  |  Hilton – Seminar Theater  |  Primo Track  |  B.12.01

Presented by: Spencer Lamm (Swarthmore College/TriCollege Consortium); Chelsea Lobdell (TriCollege Consortium)

Abstract: Beginning in June of 2010, the TriCollege Consortium of Bryn Mawr, Haverford and Swarthmore worked to select, design and implement a channeled discovery layer modeled after those implemented at Villanova, BYU, NCSU, and the National Library of Australia and which is set to launch in spring 2012. We selected VuFind as the solution for the overall discovery layer and the library catalog channel and the Primo Central Index for the channel devoted to article content. VuFind is designed to work with the Summon API so implementation required that we extensively modify VuFind’s code so that it could integrate and display content from the PCI API. Our talk will cover why we choose this solution, a tutorial on how we integrated and displayed PCI content via the X-Services Brief Search API, and lessons learned from the process of integrating a new content source into an existing discovery layer product.

Display new materials from Voyager in Libguides with a RESTful interface.

Friday 5/11/2012  |  1:00-1:30pm  |  Hilton – Canyon B  |  Voyager Track  |  B.12.02

Presented by: Andy Taylor (University of North Alabama)

Abstract: I developed a Perl script that searches recent additions to Voyager and displays it so that it can be RESTfully queried and easily displayed in a libguide. So, for example, a subject guide on Biology could have a customized, automatically updated list of materials from the catalog displayed by simply incorporating a URL like http://www.myvoyager.com/vwebv/?q=qh+qk+ql for the LCSH areas QH, QK, and QL.

‘Seamless Circulation’ Step 1: Setting up Aleph and CircIT

Friday 5/11/2012  |  1:00-1:30pm  |  Hilton – Salon I  |  Aleph Track  |  B.12.04

Presented by: Jacque Dessino (VCCS/Tidewater Community College)

Abstract: Tidewater Community College and the city of Virginia Beach are building a joint library to serve as a branch of both organizations. The first step to a ‘seamless’ circulation experience between Aleph and Sirsi/Dynix’s Symphony was to implement TechLogic’s CircIT self check system. This presentation discusses the problems encountered and lessons learned as we work to become the first Aleph implementation of CircIT.

To The Stacks!: Inventory Using Voyager

Friday 5/11/2012  |  1:00-1:30pm  |  Hilton – Topaz  |  Voyager Track  |  B.10.05

Presented by: Julie Kabelac (Wells College)

Abstract: After combing Voy-L for inventory processes and extracting the least technology-intense pieces, we created a workflow using Voyager (7.2.2) Circulation, Cataloging, and Access Reports, a laptop, and a Bluetooth scanner. I will talk about our SysAdmin preparation, the process itself (applies to call number ranges or locations) and the periodic follow up, including the use of Pick and Scan, various tables and queries, and unexpected issues encountered.

User Testing of Primo at Tulane

Friday 5/11/2012  |  1:00-1:30pm  |  Hilton – Canyon A  |  Primo Track  |  B.12.06

Presented by: Dave Comeaux (Tulane University); Kate Montgomery (Tulane University)

Abstract: Tulane University implemented the Primo web-scale discovery system for the Fall 2011 semester. Part of the implementation strategy was to evaluate the system’s usability and patron satisfaction. To accomplish these goals, a user assessment committee was formed. This committee developed, implemented and analyzed a both a usability test and online survey. 20 patrons participated in our usability testing, and over 200 responded to our survey. Wonder what they said? Let us tell you!

Using on-shelf holds instead of callslips for branch to branch lending

Friday 5/11/2012  |  1:00-1:30pm  |  Hilton – Canyon C  |  Voyager Track  |  B.12.07

Presented by: John Greer (Mansfield Library/University of Montana)

Abstract: The University of Montana Libraries’ goal was to make the process of requesting material from the OPAC as easy as possible. This meant that we didn’t want the user to have to decide between placing a hold or placing a call slip to request any item that was desired. One choice- one result was the goal. This presentation will show how the library setup the voyager on-shelf holds feature to be used as a request mechanism for branch to branch material requests, on-shelf requests, in library requests and others. I will show the reports that are used to pull items from the shelves, go over the circulation process, show how each branch responds, and cover the pros and cons of serving your patrons in this manner.

Virtualization: How’s it working for you?

Friday 5/11/2012  |  1:00-1:30pm  |  Hilton – Salon III  |  General Track  |  B.12.08

Presented by: Erik Biever (University of Minnesota – Twin Cities)

Abstract: By the time ELUNA begins, we will have migrated Verde and Primo (possibly also MetaLib and SFX) from physical servers to virtual machines at the University of Minnesota. This presentation will focus on performance issues (real and perceived) and anything else that is unique to the VM experience. It will not be a technical presentation on VMware configuration. Please bring your own virtualization stories and questions.
