Town Report Digitization Project and more...


Town Report Digitization Project

At the Governor and Council meeting yesterday our collaborative project with UNH to add additional town reports to the UNH digital archive was approved.

NHSL staff is working with UNH staff to gather the reports already held in our collections and those that are born-digital. Once those phases of the project are complete we will be looking to fill gaps. In order to be ready to do that as efficiently as possible we would like to gather information about the town report holdings of NH libraries so we will know who may have any reports that we do not.

If you want to help, please complete this short survey (link is at end of post) before the end of November. It asks for the years (ranges please, not a one-by-one list)  for which you hold your own town's annual reports and then any other NH towns for which you hold reports.

ILL Deliveries and Columbus Day: will you be open?

Hi folks,
If you normally receive ILL deliveries on Mondays AND you will be closed on Columbus Day, Oct. 11, can you please email me directly to let me know?
We are open the 11th and will still be making deliveries, but your responses will save our drivers some wasted trips to closed libraries that we have no keys for.  If we do have a key, you will still get a delivery.

You do not need to respond if you don’t have a Monday ILL van stop or if you will be open on the 11th.

Thanks for your help
Charles

Fixes and enhancements to ILL program Tue 10/5

To allow installation of fixes and enhancements, the NHAIS ILL System will be offline for up to 15 minutes tonight (Tuesday, Oct. 5) starting at 10 o'clock.

-A recent change to the print functionality for request status and pick lists resulted in requests being in groups of 25 for printing. This proved unsatisfactory for some high-volume ILL departments so further changes have been made in the program.

With this release, the pop-up print window allows the user to determine the “Number of Requests to Print.” If there are fewer than 50 requests in the list, the “Number of Requests to Print” will default to the actual number of requests in the list. If there are more than 50 requests in the list, the “Number of Requests to Print” will default to 50, but the user can change that value to print up to the total number of requests. If a value greater than the total number of requests is entered, the user will be prompted to enter a value equal to or less than the total number of records.

-Requests that stayed unanswered at a potential lender for 4 days (the maximum response time) were at times skipping lenders and generating an error message beginning with “User ILL permissions cannot be verified…” This has been corrected so the requests will go to the next potential lender as expected.

-The following MARC subfields are being added to the listed search indexes; these subfields were previously accessible only in General Keyword searches:
Title index: 740 subfields a, n, p (Added Entry – Uncontrolled Related/Analytical Title)
Subject index: 651 subfields a, x, y, z (Subject Added Entry – Geographic Name)
