1 MetaLib UK and Ireland User Meeting, February 2003 National Library of the Netherlands

2 Case Study: Dutch Consortium The consortium Team approach … Well, do we ? Individual MetaLib Achievements Consortium achievements with MetaLib The consortium and Ex Libris The consortium and negotiating access to resources

3 The consortium 10 Universities: –All: digital library with a portal approach – 7 (possible 8): Metalib (X-Server) + SFX – 1 (possible 2): iPortal (OCLC-PICA) 3 Technical Universities: 1 M-SFX The national library (KB) Formed late 2001 ; joint selection of portal software ; consortium contract with E L

4 Team approach … Umbrella contract, all else bilateral between members and Ex Libris No formal feedback channel to E L: wish list has to go SMUG or E L local chapter Consortium: training, sharing resource configuration, discussing customization, negotiating Z39.50 (SRU) access Exchange: CSCW with Yahoo!Groups

5 Well, do we ? Resource configuration (from scratch or fine tuning E L Global): unnecessary duplication of efforts and results sometimes in Public Domain, but also payment Difficult to form a pressure group with one agenda for future enhancements

6 Individual MetaLib Achievements Stages of implementation very different: some started mid 2002, others in 2003 ; always SFX first (DNL: Metalib first) – now 1 full implementation, 3 on its way, others late 2003 or 2004 Resources take time, certainly too the portal design and integration with overall website + usability testing OPAC through HTTP + XML ; Dutch National Library + E L: SRU + stylesheets: ; ILL: problematic

7 Consortium achievements with MetaLib Indirect: joint training + negotiations (publishers, PICA, E L) + representation ( SMUG, E L, national fora ) + informal models for consortium cooperation Implementation: more individually or bilateral than as consortium Across unis + national lib: *one* look alike main search + portal facility for end-users The road ahead: wishlist …

8 The consortium and Ex Libris Training as consortium Troubleshooting and advice: bilateral E L offer to help on Local Resources (screen scraping approach) ; csrtium probably goes its own way E L + csrtium: SRU + stylesheets for native, non-uniform search result presentation To be expected: work on X-Server

9 The consortium and negotiating access to resources Z39.50 access to the Dutch national catalogue (books and journal articles) Major issue: moving the PICA organization to make their resources + hosted ones (the national catalogue) SFX aware Likewise: Z39.50 (SRU) access + SFX enabling (source + target) as key issue in contracts with publishers
