Library Catalogue as One Stop Shop

14 Mar

Excited about big steps forward in federated searching and ebooks on our library catalogue. Still have couple of single sign-ons to establish. However, this is establishing our catalogue as one-stop-shop – for books, ebooks, instructions, pathfinders, videos, archive materials, sheet music, equipment, links to other internal resources etc. So, here are screen shots of what our library catalogue currently can do and offer…

Scribd versions removed; not as clear.

    Thus is so good, your work behind the scenes must have been very arduous. Is your Oliver hosted on site or in the Cloud? I would be keen to know how you get around the mix of cloud and internal servers and/or storage.

      Our Oliver catalogue is hosted by Softlink. Students and staff access the catalogue at home and school via their devices which they log onto, so many resources are saved on our servers. However, we also have school youtube channel and I use slideshare, wordpress, scribd and issuu, amongst other tools, to host resources externally.

    Dear Anne

    Our school uses Destiny (a Follett product) and we are also excited about the Web 2.0 interfaces, federated searches and other features of this Library Management System. Cutting edge library programmes are making digital technologies for the Net/Next generation a reality.
