Minutes of the October 30, 2014 Meeting

1. Melissa, Li, and Matt are working on recommendations for item record default and extended displays. The settings for the default displays in the current Library Catalog are being reviewed and a spreadsheet will be developed to indicate where in the record each of the fields should appear (e.g., main bib record, description tab, staff view). VuFind uses the same display regardless of item format, so the display needs to be optimized for all formats.

Preliminary recommendations for VuFind customization related to record displays and results lists were as follows.

Joseph will investigate the options for adding cover images to the interface (e.g., Syndetics, OpenLibrary, Google). Ideally LCC would like to have cover images display on the main bib record when images are available, but suppress the “No image available” fill-in graphic. The no image available graphic would likely need to remain on the results list in order to maintain the alignment of the results.

2. Next meeting

November 20, 1:30 p.m., University Librarianís Conference Room.
