Minutes of the May 13, 2010 Meeting

Stephanie Bartz (chair & recorder), Natalie Borisovets, Ellen Calhoun, Sara Harrington, Tibor Purger (guest), Bob Warwick
Theo Haynes, Li Sun

1. Media booking button

Stephanie will contact Jane again and will invite her to attend an IPAC meeting to discuss these issues.

3. Book Delivery/Recall page

There was further discussion about changes to the Book Delivery/Recall page. Additional space should be added above "Book Delivery." There should be space between the two headers and the text should be slightly smaller. Discussions of the form portion of the page led to the suggestion that it be shortened and simplified to something like the following:

Before any changes are made Bob will need to check what else might be using the form code. Additional suggestions should be sent to Bob.

The Book Special Request form needs to be reviewed next. As a first step, Bob will remove the red note about IN PROCESS/PENDING. (Note: Art IN-PROCESS books use Book Special Request, not Book Delivery/Recall.)

4. Symphony 3.3.1

Bob has continued with his work on preparing the Rev C pages for Rev D and hopes to have the changes in place to demo at the June meeting. LDAP implementation for IRIS is still in progress.

5. IRIS feedback and fixes

6. IRIS Guide and checklist for testing software updates

There are variations between the way a browse search of reserve works and a regular browse search of IRIS. For reserves, the first result listed is either the item searched or the next item alphabetically (if the searched item doesn't exist). A search for McCormick may show McGrady as the first search result. In the regular catalog, the results always show the items both alphabetically before and after the item searched. Bob will contact SIRSI to ask if it's possible to make the two browse searches yield the same type of results. Bob will also rearrange the buttons on the reserves search page to match the arrangement on the reserves Quick Search page.

It was suggested that images be added to the IRIS Guide. This can be done, but multiple members of IPAC will need to be involved in creating and maintaining them.

7. Information Sharing

8. Next meeting

June 17, 1:30 p.m., University Librarian's Conference Room
