1 Transitioning to DigiTool for E-reserves E-reserves and your Academic Library June 11, 2009 University of Guelph-Humber Presented by: Jennifer Peters-Lise, Metadata & Digital Services Librarian E-reserves and your Academic Library June 11, 2009 University of Guelph-Humber Presented by: Jennifer Peters-Lise, Metadata & Digital Services Librarian

2 E-reserves at Seneca Primer

3 Sept 2004 – April 2005 First e-reserves pilot Blackboard Content System 10 nursing faculty Links to research databases, licenses for scanned articles, links to the items in the library Results – faculty loved the service, library staff hated the software

4 Sept 2005 – Dec 2006 Formed the E-reserves Research Committee Examined: –Seneca’s current print reserves –Canadian E-reserves Scan 17 existing e-reserves projects across Canada –Available systems for e-reserves

5 E-reserves Prototypes Docutek –cost, stand-alone system Blackboard Content System –logical display, no cataloguing (just a filename), no reports, limited statistics, reliant on ITT Voyager –full cataloguing capability, results/browsing interface wasn’t great

6 E-reserves Prototypes – the winner Encompass –Cataloguing workflow On-the-fly templates Hierarchical collection view –Import MARC records –Similarity to ILS system –Already owned it, no extra hardware cost –Combines logical browsing of Blackboard with the cataloguing and data control of Voyager

15 Encompass Spent 6 months customizing the system and UI, training staff, creating our e-reserves system Great success among faculty, students and library staff

16 Then Ex Libris bought Endeavor…

17 The End of Encompass Ex Libris announced they would no longer support Encompass clients. We were offered Ex Libris’ digital library software DigiTool for very little cost to make up for our inconvenience Jan–Mar 2009 – Digitool installed, Encompass records migrated, training for admin Spring 2009 – customizations began

25 Digitool features – similar to Encompass Cataloguing workflow –On-the-fly templates –hierarchical collection view Import MARC records Combines logical browsing of Blackboard with the cataloguing and data control of Voyager Can link to a course readings list from Blackboard

26 Digitool features that are better than Encompass

27 Host many collections from one site

28 Upload different manifestations of an item into the same record

29 Integrate cataloguing rules directly into the cataloguing client

30 Use various metadata schema and add local fields

31 Digitool features – better than Encompass Ingest module - upload records by spreadsheet, great for student workers or anyone you don’t want to train on the cataloguing module Deposit Module $$ – faculty can upload their own items

32 Things we don’t like about Digitool Private collections Creating courses and groupings Cataloguing Module scary for staff!

33 Current Digitool Status User testing Finish customizations Staff training Full launch September 2009

34 This just in…Digitool is being replaced…
