New Features in the I-Share Union Catalog

The CARLI Office is pleased to announce that the new index for the I-Share union catalog is now in place. The new index supports three major enhancements to the VuFind interface:

New Format Facets in VuFind Local Catalogs

CARLI has completed reindexing of all VuFind local catalogs. The reindexing takes advantage of new data elements in RDA catalog records, and also of some previously unexploited data elements in AACR2 and older catalog records. We expect a new index for the I-Share union catalog to be ready within the next few days.

I-Share Best Practices: Damaged Items

Millions of items are charged and discharged across our Circulation desks as well as sent all over the state and beyond. It’s inevitable that items will end up damaged from use. Some items will be slightly damaged and can still be loaned. Others will be damaged beyond repair. In order to keep track of the condition of items, the following practices are recommended.

**Included at the end of this document you will find a handy checklist that you can copy and use to create your own streamer/insert/Post-It note, etc. for noting the condition of items. **

VuFind Downtime

The I-Share union catalog and the VuFind interface to I-Share libraries' local catalogs may be offline for maintenance on Sunday, August 18, between 12:01am and 10:00am.

Borrowing and Lending Comparison FY2013

Lending [Outgoing] and Borrowing [Incoming] totals in one view for easy comparison.

UB Stat 2: Incoming ILL FY2013

Incoming ILL represents items borrowed by your patrons from other I-Share libraries. An On-site borrowing transaction is one in which your patron visits the other library and completes the circulation transaction there. A Remote borrowing transaction is one in which your patron requests an item, the item is sent to your library, and is charged at your library.

UB Stat 1: Outgoing ILL FY2013

Outgoing ILL represents items loaned by your library to each I-Share library and the ILLINET libraries. An On-site lending transaction is one in which the patron of the other library walks in to your library to complete the circulation transaction. A remote lending transaction is one in which the patron from the other library requests the item, the item is sent to their desired pickup location, and is charged there.

Unique Title Counts 2013

The Unique Titles column represents the number of titles in your library held by no other I-Share library.

Library Record Counts FY2013

The Bib column represents the number of bibliographic records in your library’s database. The Bibs w/o MFHDs column is a subset of that count and represents bibliographic records without associated MFHDs or holdings. The MFHD column represents the number of MFHD (MARC Format for Holdings Data) records in your library’s database. The MFHDs w/o items column is a subset of that count and represents MFHDs without associated item records. These could feasibly represent serial holdings that do not have barcoded items attached.

Oracle Linux Migration Complete

The Oracle database migration from Solaris to Linux is now complete. All services should now be back online and available to users.

If you discover any problems or notice any performance degradation (or improvement), please contact to let us know.

Voyager Linux Migration - Cataloging and Acquisition unavailable

At 5PM on Friday, July 12th, we will start the process of migrating our Production Voyager system from the Solaris operating system to Linux. This migration mainly involves rebuilding the Voyager keyword indexes on the new Linux server. During this migration, we will turn off access to Voyager Cataloging and Voyager Acquisition staff clients to avoid any record edits/updates during the index rebuild process.
