SILS Concerns/Information-Sharing
  • Troubleshooting E-Resources - How?  Who will we contact?
    • Clear campus path for handling issues.
    • UCSB had a form for reporting issues (open to faculty, who were not always pleased)
    • Slack Channel for Library Staff to ask questions?
  • CDI - Open and Easy? Will more items show than our users can get to?
  • Test Instances - What are we calling the different scopes for searching?  What will we find in each of the searches especially regarding tier 1 resources. 
  • A-Z Journals list, What is shown in the brief record?  Is it publishing usage or UC holdings or Local Holdings? Pick some journals to test in the test instances. 
  • Test instances are likely broken right now while EXL does Back end work
  • UCSB Weirdness - URLS for open resources are being prepended with Proxy prefix - Still being worked on, but might be fixed. Painful Exclude file to keep users from having to authenticate to ue open materials. Doesn't work if the same publisher has licensed and open materials. 
  • ILL outside of UC System  - How will it be done - This should work but we might need some training/guidance. 
  • Spinoff title from NEJM looked like it was held at UCSD even though they did not. Title vs. Collection holdings. 
  • Special ID to look under the hood and see why we are seeing something
  • Campus Decision for links to Worldcat and Worldcat search profiles.
  • Where will we see holdings of other campuses?
  • Revision of Guides and tutorials etc...
  • Permalinks - Will they be perma?  I was told they would work.  Lets keep our fingers crossed
  • UC-eLinks list to Alma Resolver transition - From July 27th through Early fall - 
  • One week access to test implementation before go-live for campuses that are already on Alma Primo... Maybe - Not all campuses have heard about this, might have to check for more details. 
  • Libguides - Ties back to Permalinks question, but getting things in order before cutover will take work.
  • APIs - Rolling out new search API - how will this affect us?
Vendor Statistics - How we get them, how we use them

Counter vs sushi 

Lets make a list of resources and talk to Nga
