Update on World Cat Local and WMS from Mary JaneBit by bit we are seeing improvements in our implementation of World Cat Local and WMS. Two exciting developments:
Now you can see our local notes in World Cat Local.
To see an example of this search gift and magid in the search box of WCL
Select a title, not availability, but the title
Scroll down to where it says UNCG University Libraries notes:
You will see the notes that we decided were important for library users to see. You will often see double content notes which is unfortunate but it was all or nothing and sometimes we had enhanced or added contents so a decision was make to always display our content notes.
All of our currently received periodicals are now in Knowledge Base which means patrons will discover them in the A-Z list
This is not as elegant a solution as we might desire but hopefully a step in the right direction. Some currently received titles may have fallen through the cracks so if you find a title like that report it to me. In the coming weeks with the help of Reference and Instructional Services, many in Cataloging will be inputting bound periodical holdings in Knowledge Base so it more closely matches what is in Journal Finder
These two improvements could not have come about without the dedicated work of many in Cataloging, Acquisitions/Serials and Beth Bernhardt and Terry's help. Hope you enjoy these improvements. Stay tune for more announcements as we migrate over.
