IRIS No More: Discussion of effects of elimination of IRIS name for the Library Catalog
- Impact on permalinks if URL for the library catalog is changed. Bob reports the plan is to keep the old URL for up to a year.
- Abundance of IRIS mentions in LibGuides. Sam is probably aware of the extent of this problem.
- The library catalog will have a variety of names depending on context: Rutgers University library catalog, library catalog, catalog.
- Bob has made the following changes in test Catalog screens:
Changes still needing to be made:
- Exit IRIS to EXIT
- IRIS Guide change to User Guide - actual title on item might be Catalog (or User) Guide - Using the Online Library Catalog
- Browser title: from Text IRIS to Rutgers University Library Catalog?
- Title on Report [IRIS] Error(s) Screen
- Leave as Checkouts, Catalog Requests,
- Time out message needs to be changed from IRIS to "begin a new session"
- "IRIS is currently unavailable" will be clarified (Stephanie to insert new working here).
- This just in
needs IRIS eliminated and replaced with Catalog in Check IRIS under the call number, in the instructions to "Click on a check IRIS link
" So Bob will have "United State Government Publication" removed from the Title box on those web pages. And remove "check IRIS" and instead hyperlink to item Title which will display in IRIS (the library catalog) blue but without underlining. Bob will consult Sam on whether this is acceptable.
- Send suggestions for renaming IPAC to Stephanie. List name will be kept as is. Committee's charge should be reviewed and updated.
The Library Catalog checklist
LibGuide for IPAC Work Space has samples. We need to complete by sometime in July.
Permalink button has been removed from Advanced Search pages of the Library Catalog, since they did
not work right.
In the context of This Just In
, discussion was held of awareness of new cataloging efforts, like streaming video from NJVid and large loads for sets and databases. IPAC asked its cataloging representative to encourage broad announcement of these additions to the library catalog.
Feedback: None since last meeting.
