13/11/2007Herbststagung GSHS 2007 Interne Besprechrung R Interne Besprechung PubMan Release 1 Sehr detaillierte Besprechung des ersten Releases Anmerkungen zum Layout, Anmerkungen zu den Genres Verständnisfragen Funktionalitätsbedürfnisse (s. word dokumente)
13/11/2007Herbststagung GSHS 2007 Interne Besprechrung R1 Some of the labels of the buttons sound as if 'translated from German'. Buttons like 'add', 'upload' etc. should appear next to the thing they are referring to. Now it is unclear to which field the button applies. Views/Profiles : It would be nice if the user can have his own 'view' of the system. A user from our institute will probably use different standard fields than a user from another institute and even users within the institute differ. It would be nice if one could use an entry as a 'template'. It would be nice if the user can add 'user defined attributes', e.g. 'my references for my homepages', 'my Nature publications'. The user would like to add his tags already during inserting as opposed to searching specific records after inserting. Background: the user would like specific references on his homepage. One could define 'specific tags' like: full list, abbreviated list, favorite list and use these in scripting for the insitute's homepages - in addition the user should be able to define his own attributes.
13/11/2007Herbststagung GSHS 2007 Interne Besprechrung R1 Pending is another category than the others. It has to with the status of the item in the workflow of PubMan (validating), at least that is what we think! The item status should read: submitted under revision electronically published published
13/11/2007Herbststagung GSHS 2007 Genre types: General remark: group types of publications together: published publications - talks - etc.At the moment no sorting order can be detected (not even alphabetically). rename book item --> book chapter rename courseware (unknown terminology) --> teaching material / lectures instead of term thesis --> use 3 variants: MA thesis, PhD thesis, Habilitationsschrift report --> unclear what is meant special issue instead of issue
13/11/2007Herbststagung GSHS 2007 Kommentar MPDL Team 16.7.Kommentare PubMan Team auf Feedback General remark: group types of publications together: published publications - talks - etc. MPDL: Again, we havent understood this remark completely. Is your recommendation to merge the existing publication types into bigger groups, i.e. by replacing book, book item and article by published publications (btw: which publications are not published ;) to group the display in the pull down menu? It would be good to know in how far we can make use of pull down? This will be a point for a usability questionnaire with the pilot. Option a) would mean that the application would loose relevant information. It wouldnt be possible to search for concrete types of publications, e.g. all books of author xy, or all conference papers by dept xy. In addition, a more detailed information on concrete genre types is requirement for generating the yearbook. However, we might re-discuss genre typology at a later stage. Unfortunately, international metadata community still has not come to a standardized genre type list, the search and retrieval needs are really multiple;-(
13/11/2007Herbststagung GSHS 2007 Kommentar MPDL Team 16.7.Kommentare PubMan Team auf Feedback MPDL: The institute or the department might be the editor of a journal or a book series. Anyway, local administrators can configure the list of available genre types per collection, when creating the collection. (not in R2;-) It would be nice if next to the genre type 'other' a blank field would occur, where user than can define 'other'. MPDL: Hmmm… Blank fields, deliberately filled by individuals are always tricky in the system, especially for retrieval…will have to re-check on that.
