??: [IUG] Re: Process for using Syndetics information


[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
We are using Staging port 2080 to add the Syndetics' cover images. It works and the images appear in the record, but not in the browsing list. We have added the the Syndetic links in the wwwoption and the Resource table. Are there any other configurations needed to be changed?

Using Syndetics information does not allow for searching on the table of
contents, since the info resides on another server. There are other
services that allow you to import the table of content into the record
and
thus allowing searching. Does anyone have experience with the latter?
Other than search ability, are there other pros and cons of one over the
other?

Hi Paul,

Take a look at the following WWWOptions:
BIBIMAGE
RESOURCETABLE
EBADDRESS
WEBADDRESS
BIBIMAGE
BUT_ENCYCPD

The RESOURCETABLE will allow you to pull the "more info" button out of
the inline buttons at the top of the screen and set them off to the side

of the display like our catalog
(http://roc.rodmanlibrary.com/record=b1128856). The default is inline.

If you don't have WebBridge you can have two external links by using
EBADDRESS and WEBADDRESS. We use EBADDRESS and BUT-ENCYCPD for Google
and WEBADDRESS for Amazon on the browse screens and Syndetics on the
individual record screens.

Hey Karen --

Thanks for the info. I did not pick up from the III doc several of the
points that you note below.

And because these are WWWOptions they can be done for testing on staging
without the live OPAC being affected, right?

Many thanks,

Paul

Do you also have the barcodes? What format do you have them in?
We have found a way to do just that with barcodes. If that would be

I don't think that's entirely fair. From Microsoft's perspective, IE is
doing what it is told - displaying in the font that the web designer
says
to use. Firefox went an additional step in doing font switching on a
per-character basis, but Firefox is much newer than IE. I just tested IE
7
RC1 briefly, and it did better on Leo's cited page, getting the
d-dot-below, but not getting the combining circle below.

Other factors:

1. The world of transliterated text is a specialized case. Many of the
character/diacritic combinations required in libraries are not required
in
vernacular languages.

2. The process is hampered by the lack of language tags. It's possible
that if III output language tags that were dependent on the original
language of the book being displayed, it would be improve the situation.
At the very least, you wouldn't have to specify a "universal" font, but
could use a different font for each of Simplified Chinese, traditional
Chinese, Korean, and Japanese. Or, if IE received a language tag saying
a
page was in Czeck, it could switch to an Eastern European font, in
accordance with the design of IE. (I don't know if there is adequate
information stored in bib records to produce these tags.)

3. III has been slow to get their Unicode house in order. See the
charset
issue, for instance.

On the MS help page you quote, they are addressing people who are
working in Word in a predictable language environment, and suggesting
that you install fonts specifically for those languages. The trouble
with our catalogues is that they contain data from all round the world -
not just the original script, but also all sorts of funny diacritic
combinations for the romanisation (Leeds has significant quantities of
Chinese, Japanese, Arabic and Hebrew with original script records and
all these plus Greek, Mongolian, Thai and Russian in Romanisation, plus
all the one-offs like Vietnamese, Hungarian etc. which use various
diacritics). So our WebPACs are far more complex in a single page than
MS are reckoning on.

I cited the MS font, and most of our users have MS products installed,
but you're right - and I presume that any Unicode font will do just as
well on either Bob's solution or mine.

Regarding Millennium, Leeds has never had a problem provided the font
properties file is for Unicode and a Unicode font (in our case MS) is
installed on the PC.

Again for us, the simple presence of MS Arial Unicode on the PC is
sufficient to resolve any problems on the WebPAC unicode port in
Firefox, but it screws up in IE because IE won't go hunting a suitable
font for Roman script characters in the way it does for non-Roman
script. Leading to the ironic situation that I can have a beautiful
display of the Arabic script in a record, but the romanisation is full
of squares because it can't render a t with a dot below.

I'm not an expert on any of this (except perhaps foreign languages and
romanisation) but hope this clarifies what I originally meant.

I'm not an apologist for Microsoft, but their support page suggests
Arial Unicode MS should only be used as a default when, "you cannot use
multiple fonts that are tuned for different writing systems".
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q287247/#appliesto

One of the issues I have with the Arial Unicode MS is that is it now
appears to be a propriety font. One cannot download it for free if they
do not have an MS product that provides it.
http://www.orwell.ru/test/download/ascender

If this problem is exclusively caaused by MS (specifically Internet
Explorer) why does it occur in Millennium cataloging? Is this just a
matter of properly enabling Unicode in Millennium?

Hi all-

I am hoping someone can tell me this is a mistake...

Innovative has just closed our call and indicated that, when running
Statement of Checked Out Items, all ILL items that are Awaiting Arrival
(or
any such state of the request) will also appear on the Statement of
Checked
Out items. This is actually an intended behavior (since Millennium
Silver)
and can only be changed via an enhancement request. I have confirmed
that
it does indeed happen.

They are saying that it is standard operating behavior to tell a patron
that they have an item checked out when in fact they do not. This is
absurd.

Has anyone else seen this? Can this really not be fixed except by an
enhancement request? Please "say it ain't so."

Ruth

It always has been a proprietary font. MS had contracted with Monotype
(the big name in the field) for a Unicode font, and "Arial Unicode MS"
was the result. Apparently, MS either didn't read the fine print in the
license or else misunderstood what they could do. As you pointed out,
MS used to give it away to the world for free. I have a hunch that the
hint of a lawsuit over licensing and fees (let's see, 6 billion people
in the world times $...) is what led to the restriction of the font to
users who had paid to use the font (that is, Office users), and whose
fees were then paid to the owner of the font by MS.

You can see who really owns the font by going to C:\WINDOWS\Fonts and
right clicking on "Arial Unicode MS". Click on "Properties", and then
click on "License". (If you click on "Description" as well, you'll see
that Monotype owns the entire "Arial" font family--as well as many
others.)

Just realized that you may not have Microsoft's "Font Properties
Extension", which permits seeing more information than usual when right
clicking on a font name. You can freely download it here:

http://www.microsoft.com/typography/TrueTypeProperty21.mspx

Hope this helps a bit!

Hi Sara:
I never did get DRAM music piece to work with WAM. The authentication
that
DRAM uses to identify the local institution doesn't seem to old through
their streaming server. Unfortunately, I've found several new resources

that don't like to play well with WAM when your seven or eight levels
down
in the resource site.

Did you receive any off list responses to this question? I would be
interested to know the answer also.

Thanks,

This is for those who have upgraded to Release 2006, have WebPAC Pro,
and have installed My Record Feeds.

We have a concern about redundancy. If a patron subscribes to "My
Record Feeds" - and in essence will be notified when holds are ready to
be picked up, when something is overdue - will we not be duplicating
ourselves if we also send them "notices", whether via e-mail, phone, or
print? Is there an option to change the Notice Preference so that if
someone subscribes to "My Record Feeds", then the other notices are no
longer valid and the Feed takes the place of the Notice?

This issue is most likely not an Innovative issue, but I would
appreciate the expertise of this group in trying to solve it.

Some patrons have reported (and one actually provided printouts) that
when they login to their patron account from the WebOPAC, everything
looks normal while the name and barcode are entered, but when the record
comes up, the middle part of the screen, where the patron information is
located displays in such a large font that scrolling is required to read
the patron name, and see the account information. I note also that in
the printout the images appear broken.

Changing the text size in IE by going to View, Text Size makes no
difference. At least two instances occurred while using IE 6.0.

If you have any ideas or suggestions, please contact me off list.

Your staging port is not available to outsiders. :)

The only thing I want to suggest (from a usability/accessibility
perspective) is that you want to be very careful about changing
background colors. Whenever you lower the contrast between text and
background you risk making the content you are intending to highlight
less readable. Especially when working with green and red. I'd
recommend simply changing the color of the search term and leaving the
background alone.

Greetings,
hopefully this will be an easy one.

I'm working on our staging Webpac, teaching myself the ways
of briefcit.html and style.css.

What I want to do is change the background color of the row that
contains the search term (right below the number of results)on the Brief
Citation display.

Example: go to http://catalog.cbpl.lib.ia.us:2082 and do a subject
search of dogs. Click on the second entry. On the Brief citation
screen I've managed to turn everything green except the row with the
search term.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Mary

Subject: [IUG] Circulation migration question -- large academic
libraries
To: innopac at innopacusers dot org
Message-ID: <p06230901c13dcb1d2799 at [128 dot 83 dot 56 dot 184]>

The University of Texas Libraries is interested in hearing from other
large (roughly 20,000 students or more) academic libraries who have
migrated to III or Millennium within the last 5 years about their
experience with circulation migration.

If your library falls into this category, and if you did NOT do dual
circulation on your old system and the Innovative system, could you
please respond to the following questions?

1. Did you shut down circulation operations on your old system and
close your circulation desks (not offer check-out, check-in, hold
requests, etc.) while data was being migrated to Millennium?

2. If you did shut down circulation, for how long were circulation
desks closed, and at what point in your academic calendar did this
occur?

3. If you did NOT close your circulation desks during migration, how
did you provide checkout and other basic services? (We are interested
in hearing both from libraries which DID, and DID NOT, use the III
Migration Checkout function.)

4. If you used Migration Checkout, what was your experience with it?
Any problems?


We would sincerely appreciate any information you could provide about
your circulation migration experiences, the process you used to
migrate, and any information about problems you encountered.

You may want to respond off-list. If there is interest in the
response, I will post a summary to the list.

Thanks very much,
Suzanne McAnna
