1 University of Wisconsin - Madison Curran Riley 1711/criley

2 Currently using Handles for: 1711.web –For licensed electronic resources –Including EZproxy string in Handles for remote access by valid UW-Madison patrons 1711.dl –For digitization projects –Use for URLs as well as links to project contents (images, etc.)

3 Development efforts: Web administration servlet Handling application Oracle Handle database

4 Web Administration Servlet Allows creation and modification of Handles through a web browser Uses J2EE Servlet Goal is to allow regular librarians to create and modify Handles for library resources by themselves Still in testing, but we would share the source code when its finished if others are interested

5 Web Administration Servlet Requires the addition of a HS_SECKEY to the librarians personal Handle (which functions as the web password).

6 Web Administration Servlet Users can create a Handle with Name, URL and contact address

7 Web Administration Servlet Users can also modify existing Handles

8 Web Administration Servlet Modifying the NAME value of a Handle

9 Web Administration Servlet Users can list all Handles for a particular subnaming authority

10 Handling application Allows passing of a parameter to the server along with a Handle. Interprets what to do with parameter Results in a URL being returned, much like current Handle resolver

11 Handling application Example: Documents in EBSCO can have links back to holdings in our library catalog, using the ISBN or ISSN number. Requires setting up a canned search URL in EBSCO so the ISBN or ISSN can be appended to the URL: –http://madcat.library.wisc.edu/cgi- bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?DB=local&CNT=100+records+per +page&BOOL1=as+a+phrase&FLD1=ISBN+%28ISB N%29&SA1=(ISBNNUMBERHERE) Better to use a Handle, in case of changes to our catalog require a change to our canned search url.

12 Handling application Application restructures the URL from: –http://j2ee-dev.library.wisc.edu/1712/madcatissn?ISBN= http://j2ee-dev.library.wisc.edu/1712/madcatissn?ISBN= to –http://j2ee- dev.library.wisc.edu/abc.do?handle=1712/madcatissn&num= J2EE servlet (abc.do) will resolve the handle to the canned search URL and then append the number in the ISBN parameter. It will then redirect to the newly generated URL.

13 Future Projects Store Handles in an Oracle database –We have been working with CNRI to implement –Licensed for Oracle, good Oracle expertise on campus (myself excluded) Add multiple resolution and authentication piece –Handles would include URLs to freely available (thumbnails) and restricted (full size) images with a tie to a UW-Madison authentication server Add metadata??? –We are very interested in how much others are putting in Handle records
