1 University of Georgia Libraries / Cataloging design robin fay We will explore the following concepts: OPAC search (requires LiveWeb plugin; includes AUDIO) OPAC search (requires LiveWeb plugin; includes AUDIO) * appears to broken 9/2008 Difference in searching in OPAC and Technical modules Technical module searching Technical module searching demo (requires LiveWeb plugin) Boolean searching tips Using the History in Technical module UNIT 4: GIL Search In this unit, we will learn a little about GIL (Voyager) searching. Let’s get started by viewing a demo of searching in the OPAC. Click next to start this unit. You will with GIL… Click next to get started with this unit…. or go to the Menu to choose a different topic.

2 University of Georgia Libraries / Cataloging design robin fay UNIT 4: GIL search: Searching in the OPAC demo Please be patient, it may take a minute to load. Use the scroll bar to view the information. When you are finished, click on the grey and yellow next button at the bottom of the screen.

3 University of Georgia Libraries / Cataloging design robin fay What is the difference between staff-side searching in the Cataloging or Acquisitions modules and the OPAC? Some records are suppressed in the OPAC and are only visible in the staff client (the Technical module, such as Cataloging or Acquisitions) Searching in the staff client has more options Records in the staff client display more information including the history of the record which can be helpful in tracing an item Edits or corrections can only be made in the staff client, not the OPAC. During the course of searching, you may stumble across records needing work. The OPAC gives a clear view of what the public sees. An excellent way to check work done in the staff client. Let’s get started with searching in the Cataloging module …. UNIT 4: GIL: Cataloging module vs. OPAC

4 University of Georgia Libraries / Cataloging design robin fay Toolbars in the Cataloging Module: buttons vs. pull-down menus As with all Windows applications, there are toolbar buttons which serve the same purposes as choosing from a pull-down menu Certain buttons will be colored or grayed-out depending on what type of record you are viewing and your authority level Shortcut keys can be of great use in minimizing mousing or key strokes To turn on “View Line Items in Acquisitions (i.e., purchase order information) Menu option in the GIL Cataloging Module, you will need authorization to view Acquisitions and then login to the Acquisitions Module. We will see the various menus and buttons in action. UNIT 4: GIL search: Cataloging module

5 University of Georgia Libraries / Cataloging design robin fay There are 4 tabs to choose from in the search box: Keyword (Boolean searching) Index (Non- Keyword), Builder, and History. To move between tabs, simply click on the tab you wish to go to. We will see a demo of searching in a moment. Let’s start with a simple Index search. UNIT 4: GIL search: Search options

6 University of Georgia Libraries / Cataloging design robin fay Index Search is also known as “Title/Author/Subject heading” in the OPAC More indexes to choose from in staff-side than in OPAC via a drop down list. Searches are not automatically truncated. Use ? or set preferences to “Automatic truncation for non-keyword searches.” Ability to limit by location or headings type (e.g., LC call number, local call numbers, etc.) We will explore this search a little more. UNIT 4: GIL search: Index search

7 University of Georgia Libraries / Cataloging design robin fay Index or Non-Keyword Searching Choose between “find” or “browse” and use the pull-down menu and scroll bar to specify the search Next, we will see a demo of searching by index. We will browse by call number. UNIT 4: GIL search: Index search

8 University of Georgia Libraries / Cataloging design robin fay Although you will receive more training in editing GIL bibliographic records, here is a brief demo of navigating in GIL. We will browse by call number. When the demo has stopped, click on next. UNIT 4: GIL search: Search demo

9 University of Georgia Libraries / Cataloging design robin fay You can use Builder with Keyword Anywhere to search for just about anything in the MARC record. Next, we will see a demo of searching using a builder search. UNIT 4: GIL: Builder search The builder search

10 University of Georgia Libraries / Cataloging design robin fay Although you will receive more training in searching, here is a brief demo. We will be using a simple author + title builder search. When the demo has stopped, click on next. Next, we will learn about Boolean searching. UNIT 4: GIL search: Builder search demo

11 University of Georgia Libraries / Cataloging design robin fay How would you construct a Boolean search to find a book about cartoons from the New Yorker? UNIT 4: GIL search: Keyword/Boolean search Boolean is the equivalent of Command searching in the OPAC and is not relevance ranked.

12 University of Georgia Libraries / Cataloging design robin fay Need more tips on Boolean searching? UNIT 4: GIL search: Keyword/Boolean search Results for the search using "New Yorker" and cartoons

13 University of Georgia Libraries / Cataloging design robin fay Tips for Using Boolean Searching: Use operators and (to include), or (to expand the search), not (to exclude) Special symbols ? + * work the same as they do in the OPAC Use quotation marks for phrase searching Next, we will look briefly at free text search. UNIT 4: GIL search: Keyword/Boolean search tips

14 University of Georgia Libraries / Cataloging design robin fay Free Text is the equivalent to the OPAC Relevance Ranked Keyword search...and finally….. UNIT 4: GIL search: Keyword Free Text

15 University of Georgia Libraries / Cataloging design robin fay Finally, the search History tab displays a history list of previous searches. Selecting a previous search and click “Do Search” will repeat it; additionally limits can be added to a previous search. Clicking on EDIT allows the search to be refined or revised. …the search history is very helpful in doing work in GIL. Next, we will review key concepts. UNIT 4: GIL search: Search history
