1 UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences – Implementing Quick Search in the Newly Designed Library Website to Meet Users’ Needs Fengzhi Fan, Systems Librarian Yingting Zhang, Information & Education Librarian Robert Cupryk, Information & Education Librarian Kerry O’Rourke, Campus Library Director, UMDNJ - Robert Wood Johnson Library of the Health Sciences NJLA, April 27, 2010

2 UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences – Introduction – Focus groups Focus Groups with Students:  Comments & suggestions on old website  Ideas for better features on new website  Sample features presented for review  Single search box was favored  Capability to search PubMed from homepage

3 Outcome of Focus Groups Based on focus groups’ results, a quick search feature was developed:  in early 2009  in house by library staff  implemented in our newly designed website  enabling students to perform quick search in PubMed, CINAHL, and our e-resources collection directly from library’s homepage:  goal accomplished without any additional funding UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences –

5 A Glance at UMDNJ – RWJ Library Website UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences –

6 A Closer Look at the Quick Search Box UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences – The first quick search box is an embedded search script which provides a direct search against selected databases such as PubMed and CINAHL. In the example below PubMed was chosen.

7 PubMed Search Example / Demo UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences –

8 PubMed Search Results UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences –

10 PubMed Search Results Finding Full Text Article UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences –

11 Embedded Search Script Redirect.cgi is a simple perl script which provides a direct search against PubMed & CINAHL. PubMed parser: my $URL = "http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez?holding=njunjnlib&otool=njunjnlib&dr=Abstract&term=$strTitle"; print " "; print "window.location='$URL'"; print " "; CINAHL parser: my $URL = "http://search.epnet.com/direct.asp?db=cin20&fquery=$strTitle&scope=site"; print " "; print "window.location='$URL'"; print " "; Other parsers could include: Voyager, Medline, AccessMedicine, MDConsult, ASP, etc. UMDNJ Office of Advancement and Communications

12 Finding an E-Resource UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences – The second search box is a database-driven search program, capable of searching the UMDNJ e-resource collection including e-journals, e-books, databases, and subject toolkits. A limited subject search is available for e-books and databases. The collection can also be browsed by alphabet. For e-journals, data is loaded from the SFX server. For e-books and databases, data is imported from a flat table maintained by our e-resources staff. Various web/database technologies were utilized including MySQL, MS Access, Perl, and PHP.

13 E-Resource Search Example / Demo UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences –

14 E-Resource Search Example UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences –

15 Database-Driven Search Program qsearch.php is a php script which provides search for e-books, e-journals, e-databases & toolkits titles. Example SQL query to find e-books by title and subject in MS Access: $sqlquery = "SELECT DISTINCT title, url, database, cgi FROM jinput WHERE type = 'ebook' AND title LIKE '%$keywords%' UNION SELECT DISTINCT title, url, database, cgi FROM jinput WHERE cgi IN (SELECT cgi FROM ebook_subject_link WHERE subject_id = (SELECT subject_id FROM ebook_subject WHERE subject = '$keywords'))"; PHP code to display the search result: while(!$objrs->EOF) { $title = $objrs->Fields(0); $url = $objrs->Fields(1); $database = $objrs->Fields(2); $cgi = $objrs->Fields(3); $realUrl = $realUrl = " value. "\" target='_blank'\""; print("". $realUrl. ">". $title->value. " - E-book from ". $database->value. " "); UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences –

16 Database-Driven Search Program Example sql query to find e-journals by title in MySQL: $query = "SELECT A.TITLE_NORMALIZED, F.THRESHOLD_GLOBAL, S.ISSN_ID, F.THRESHOLD, A.OBJECT_ID, MIN(SUBSTRING(F.THRESHOLD_GLOBAL, 23, 5)) AS HOLDING FROM AZ_TITLE A, AZ_FILTER F, AZ_LETTER_GROUP L, ISSN S WHERE A.OBJECT_ID = F.OBJECT_ID AND A.OBJECT_ID = S.OBJECT_ID AND L.AZ_LETTER_GROUP_ID = A.AZ_LETTER_GROUP_ID AND A.TITLE_NORMALIZED LIKE '%$keywords%' GROUP BY A.OBJECT_ID ORDER BY A.AZ_TITLE_ORDER"; UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences –

17 Database-Driven Search Program PHP code to display the e-journal search result: //format sql result for display $title = ""; $sub_id = ""; $holding = ""; $sfxlink1 = ""; $sfxlink2 = ""; $beginning = "http://sfx.umdnj.edu/sfxlcl3?url_ver=Z &url_ctx_fmt=infofi/fmt:kev:mtx:ctx&ctx_enc=info:ofi/enc:UTF- 8&ctx_ver=Z &rfr_id=info:sid/sfxit.com:azlist&sfx.ignore_date_threshold=1&rft.object_id="; $ending = "&svc.holdings=yes&svc.fulltext=yes"; while($record = mysql_fetch_object($result)) { $title = "$record->TITLE_NORMALIZED"; $sub_id = "$record->ISSN_ID"; $holding = "$record->HOLDING"; $object = "$record->OBJECT_ID"; $sfxlink1 = $beginning. $object. $ending; $sfxlink2 = " $title - ISSN - $sub_id - full text available from $holding "; echo $sfxlink2; } UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences –

19 Benefits of Quick Search to Information Community  This feature was subsequently adopted by all UMDNJ campus libraries.  It can be shared with and customized by other interested libraries UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences –

20 Quick Search Adopted by Other Libraries UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences –

21 Impact on Library Operations  Implementation of Quick Search demonstrated that we heard our users’ concerns and responded to their needs effectively.  Equally important we were able to accomplish the goal without any additional funding. This is particularly significant in today’s economic downturn. UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences –

22 Impact on Library/Librarians in the Academic Setting  Provides convenient one-stop search for PubMed & CINAHL  Directs users to the UMDNJ-specific PubMed link  Maximizes utilization of UMDNJ’s e- resources UMDNJ – RWJ Library of the Health Sciences –
