Content DM and Omeka

CAPT discussed the provided report that compared ContentDM, Omeka, etc. This report will be useful background for the Task Force (Beth Sandore is developing a charge for the task force). CAPT identified task force members to be MJ Han, Alex Dolski, Tom Habing, Kyle Rimkus, and Jenny Johnson. Harriett Green will be asked to serve a resource person. CAPT intends to approve charge and confirm membership via email rather than wait for the next committee meeting.


CAPT reviewed CARLI’s plan to upgrade Voyager in summer 2015 and discussed implications for technical and public services. Sue will contact the Reference Services Committee as well as Cherie Weible about offline circulation training. Jim will talk with Robert about announcements on the Gateway and departmental library websites.

Problems with Display of Extensive Serial Records

Michael reported on conversations with CARLI about the problem of serial records with extensive holdings that will not display in WebVoyage. These records do display in vuFind. CARLI has indicated that they will not be resolving this issue in WebVoyage. Lisa will check with Chris Prom about the “compare the catalog” webpage in the new Gateway and determine whether a page needs to be created. Michael will also draft an information item for Sue to send out to the AskALibrarian group.

CARLI Next Generation Update

Michael provided an overview of the work of the CARLI group thus far.

Respectfully submitted,
Lisa Hinchliffe
