The first information session is scheduled October 17, 1:30-2:45, in LIS 126. Two additional information sessions are scheduled in Library 428 on October 24, 1:00-2:30 and October 26, 10:00-11:30 am. The committee reviewed the information session outline and assignment of speakers. After the overview of information sessions, the committee will also sponsor hands-on exploration sessions and brown bag discussions. Beth will begin scheduling the hands-on and discussion sessions.
Josh is creating a WebTools form that will be used to gather feedback from library faculty and staff. The committee discussed how to organize comments that are submitted and respond to feedback. Ya’aqov volunteered to assist with analyzing the feedback.
Michael reviewed examples of different searches and search types. Hathi records for journals are overwhelming the search results sets because each journal volume/issue is showing as a separate record.
Michael, Sarah, Lisa and Josh met to review and discuss changes to the current page. The small group recommends adding links for getting help and reporting problems/giving feedback as well as the creation of a new FAQ about using the system rather than about the implementation process. There will also be some tweaks to the image and the header/footer links. Edits will be made to the results page to match the edits to the search page and ensure that “Primo” appears on the page so that users know they are still in Primo and not on a library webpage.
Initially these will offer journal/database title, author name, I-Share and LibGuides searches.
The committee reviewed the prototype that Bill has developed. The group recommended that Primo All be moved to either the top or bottom of the results listing.
Committee members discussed “Items not checked out” and tried to determine what it means.
Jenny has set up the first meeting of the usability sub-group.
