Staff that search the website for the webinars may also find them linked from the event notices on the calendar as well.

Voyager Reports Mini-Webinar

Each month, CARLI staff will offer a brief, mini-webinar to share tips, tricks, and techniques on generating reports from Voyager. Each webinar will provide an opportunity for questions and answers on Voyager reporting tools, such as Access and Web Reports, and on topics of broad interest, such as techniques for gathering circulation statistics or developing reports for responding to ACRL and IPEDS surveys. We’ll have information for you, and we hope you will have ideas for us as well.

Voyager Reports Mini-Webinar for January

Access Backbone Queries

Each functional area in Voyager relies on a core set of tables to express most of the data for that area. Each core set may be thought of as a backbone for queries, as the arrangement in the query design view will usually involve inner joins between each table from left to right. Backbone queries are highly reusable, and may help library staff construct new queries quickly by providing a framework for the criteria they want to add.

Notes about backbone queries:

SFX and Integration with Other Products

The SFX OpenURL software created by ExLibris allows users the ability to search and link to article level information. SFX administrators can integrate SFX with other library technology systems and services such as: EZproxy, WorldCat, ILLiad, Crossref, BrowZine, Google Scholar, PubMed, ProQuest 360 Core and EBSCO Discovery Service. The following documents are intended to provide SFX administrators with an overview of these systems and the advantages and disadvantages to their SFX integration.
