The University Library Service will be releasing ‘LibrarySearch’ in Summer 2011. This new service will provide an improved interface for the Voyager library catalogue and other library managed information resources.
A Beta version will be released to the University during the spring semester, to gather feedback from staff and students, with a view to launching LibrarySearch in time for the start of the 2011-12 session.
In order to implement LibrarySearch, work is required on the Voyager library catalogue journal records to ensure they are presented correctly in LibrarySearch. Currently the print and electronic versions of a journal are shown together on a single Voyager library catalogue record. These joint records will need to be split into two separate records, one for the print version and another for the electronic version. This means that you will see two separate search results for each journal which is available in both electronic and print format. The electronic version will be indicated by the statement [Electronic Resource] after the title. This is already the case for eBooks. Once available, LibrarySearch will automatically join together the electronic and print versions of books and journals in the search results.
The work on splitting the journal records will start on 31 January and we anticipate that it will take a minimum of three days. During this time some electronic journals may not be available via Voyager but will still be accessible as normal via the eLibrary (available via the Library menu in Cardiff Portal). Direct links to journals from bibliographic databases and Google Scholar will also continue to work and all other aspects of Voyager will remain available.
If you have any queries or feedback about this work, please get in touch with your subject librarian.
