I-Share OPAC Team Meeting: June 12, 2013


No report

CARLI Report:
VuFind – Do as much as they can by July 31st
Infrastructure for Mobile interface (Minrva) - not sure what's going on with that
Reindex 264 field & 338$a & $b
Union Catalog issues to address:

  • Issue 54 - (Wouldn't it be nice to limit/facet media (DVD vs. BluRay) not format (Video)?)
  • Issue 67 - Request – Before the request is in process, in the my account the location of the item could be wrong.
  • Issue 62 - Union catalog facet to ebooks in home library

Two new libraries (Kishwaukee, St. Mary's of the Lake) up soon; 4 more in the fall.

The failed requests resulting in a confusing block page was updated which reduced questions. Paige noted similar problems with name/barcode changes which means your account is 'out of sync'. Log in, clear error, request, confusing error which will be investigated.

Notice of downtime for migrations to 'Linux' from Solaris over the summer, specifically for Oracle.

028 display issue:
Generally, while some thought it wouldn't hurt since its just a number its probably best left in the staff view for now.


Paige - 690 field?
Why not displayed in local cataloged? Paige recommended we do this which was the consensus from the group.

Kirk - Piwik for log analysis results posted to wiki (http://wiki.carli.illinois.edu/index.php/OPAC-log-analysis)
Let Kirk know if you have any specific questions you want answered and he'll see can see what he can do.


Concluding the meeting, we all thanked Paul for leading this group!
