Launching the Search for I-Share Next

CARLI is beginning the first phase of the lengthy formal process of selecting and implementing the system that will ultimately replace Voyager as the software platform for I-Share. We do not plan to rename I-Share, but for clarity while we are still running Voyager and planning for its replacement, we will be using the phrase “I-Share Next” to refer to our future system.

CARLI Seeking Proposals for FY2014 Research Subsidy Program

CARLI is seeking proposals for the FY2014 Research Subsidy Program. Funded by the CARLI Board of Directors, the research awards will support research projects in Governing member libraries. Projects should have the potential to impact libraries and the library profession positively, have the potential to provide a useful addition to the existing literature, and be of interest or use to CARLI libraries. Total funding for FY2014 is $25,000.

Editing the Acqbib.cfg File for I-Share Libraries to Include “Suppress from UC” Coding

The Suppress from UC option allows for records to be visible in a local library OPAC, but the bibs are not added to the I-Share Universal Catalog (UC). This is accomplished by coding the 049 field in the bibliographic record with $u nouc. For complete information on the Suppress from UC option, see the Suppressing Bibliographic Records from the I-Share Universal Catalog using the “Suppress from UC Function” document.

“Bound Withs” in Voyager

  • A single Item Record in Voyager can be linked to multiple Bibliographic Records. This process actually links the MFHD that the Item is on to multiple bibs, since Items are connected to MFHDs and not directly to bibs. 
  • The multiple linking of any one Item attached to a MFHD automatically links the whole MFHD, and therefore any other Items attached to that MFHD, to ALL linked Bibliographic records.
