Functionality And Flair: Using Apis For Alma, Kathryn Lybarger May 2017

Functionality And Flair: Using Apis For Alma, Kathryn Lybarger

Library Presentations

Alma as a web site lets us view, search, and edit our data in a variety of ways, but what if you want to do something slightly different? Fortunately, Ex Libris provides API access that allows you to add specialized functionality to your Alma workflows, or even access Alma's data through other web sites. In this presentation I will go over the basics of APIs, demonstrate how you can learn about and test them using the Ex Libris Developer Network, and show some examples of how they can be used to extend Alma's functionality.


Regular Expressions In Practice, Kathryn Lybarger Dec 2016

Regular Expressions In Practice, Kathryn Lybarger

Library Presentations

Regular expressions are not just for programmers anymore; they are supported by common software and systems used for cataloging and metadata, and allow for very powerful search and replace, even complete reformatting of library data! In this webinar, we’ll discuss the building blocks of regular expressions, practice identifying what they match (and do not match!), and consider how we can use them to make everyday library work more efficient.


The Future Of Law Libraries, Tina M. Brooks, Franklin L. Runge, Beau Steenken Aug 2016

The Future Of Law Libraries, Tina M. Brooks, Franklin L. Runge, Beau Steenken

Law Faculty Popular Media

Law libraries are filed with the rules that govern our society, thoughtful scholars, conscientious lawyers, some hard working students, and some procrastinating students. In the past, this required libraries to collect hardbound volumes and loose leafs. Today, the collection is beginning to give way to research platforms filed with those same, or similar, materials and then some; much of the primary legal documentation is even freely available on the web.

While the physical footprint of the library may be smaller as a result of this transition, the amount of legal information that researchers have access to has grown exponentially. We ...


Starting Over: Coding To Work With Alma After Voyager, Kathryn Lybarger Jun 2016

Starting Over: Coding To Work With Alma After Voyager, Kathryn Lybarger

Library Presentations

When the University of Kentucky was a Voyager library, I wrote a variety of tools to support our processes, ranging from tiny one-line macros to larger software packages. Now that we've migrated to Alma/Primo, everything has changed! Many of the ways I extended Voyager are part of Alma by default, and Alma's community (and available APIs) encourage even further development. In this presentation, I will describe some differences between the two systems, how they affected the types of support tools I wanted, and the ways I was able to create them.


Uploading Records To The Coe Database: Easy As 1,2,3!, Sandra Mcaninch, Julene L. Jones, Mary Clark Jan 2016

Uploading Records To The Coe Database: Easy As 1,2,3!, Sandra Mcaninch, Julene L. Jones, Mary Clark

Library Presentations

As part of the Collaborative Federal Depository Program (CFDP), two pieces of software were developed to support the collection development activities of FDLP libraries in the Southeast. Most are very familiar with the ASERL Disposition Database, but some may have forgotten its quiet counter-part, the ASERL COE Database. This database is comprised of brief cataloging records that indicate holdings for all Center of Excellence (COE) libraries (and other contributing depository libraries) in the Southeast and serves as a tool for analyzing the completeness of COE collection(s) and to identify gaps.

To create a database that is as comprehensive as ...


Marc And Non-Marc Metadata For Digitized Government Documents, Kathryn Lybarger Feb 2015

Marc And Non-Marc Metadata For Digitized Government Documents, Kathryn Lybarger

Library Presentations

University of Kentucky digitized materials from their chosen agency, the Works Progress Administration (WPA). The titles had already been cataloged in MARC, but they needed Dublin Core metadata for loading the data into their digital library, and also MARC for the new electronic versions, cataloging according to current RDA standards. In this talk, the presenter will describe their workflow, and some of the difficulties encountered along the way.


Dead Links? No Problem. We’Re In This Together, Kathryn Lybarger May 2014

Dead Links? No Problem. We’Re In This Together, Kathryn Lybarger

Library Presentations

If you have ebooks in your catalog, chances are some of them are undead; they look like live links in the OPAC, but clicking on them will reveal a nasty surprise! Visit the ZBooks web site to see the zombies we already know about, and find tools for hunting them out of your own catalog. Let us know about new ones you’ve found, and we’ll put up a Wanted poster to spread the word!


Mining The Blob: There’S Gold In The Directory!, Kathryn Lybarger May 2014

Mining The Blob: There’S Gold In The Directory!, Kathryn Lybarger

Library Presentations

When running reports from Voyager, we usually focus on the fields deemed important enough to index, and avoid the blob version of the MARC records whenever possible. For some questions, however, the blob is not just the only way to the answer, but a surprisingly fast way as well. Though MARC is mainly used as a method to communicate bibliographic data, the format itself contains an index that can be used to quickly determine the broad shape of a record's content. In this talk, I will describe several projects in which I have specifically taken advantage of MARC's ...

Capturing Collective Updates And Upgrades: Using Oclc Worldshare Marc Record Delivery At University Of Kentucky Libraries, Julene L. Jones Apr 2014

Capturing Collective Updates And Upgrades: Using Oclc Worldshare Marc Record Delivery At University Of Kentucky Libraries, Julene L. Jones

Library Presentations

The OCLC Bibliographic Notification ("Bib Note") service has fundamentally changed in the last year, migrating to WorldShare Metadata Collection Manager, and allowing for much greater user customization of the service. The University of Kentucky Libraries have begun to utilize the new iteration of this free service and will discuss their findings from the delivered records, the impact that it has had on their workflows and the selected customizations they have made.
