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-Webinars

For the launch of this series, Ted Schwitzner provides a demonstration on finding items that have no circulation transactions in Voyager. The session also includes a brief look at the Web Reports system and the Bibliographic Maintenance reports for OCLC control number maintenance.

Network Firmware Upgrades this Sunday, Jan 15

This Sunday, January 15 starting at 6:30AM, campus networking staff will be upgrading the firmware on a large number of network devices. This includes the devices in our Production Data Center. Since we have redundant routers and switches, I am not expecting any downtime during this work but I wanted to make you aware of it just in case.

12:00 Welcome and Introduction to Webinar Series

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:

UIUC Firewall Maintenance

The UIUC Campus Firewalls will be upgraded which could cause network outages for anyone off-campus connecting to CARLI services.

Network staff have indicated that the outages should be brief during this window.
