Ideas

30 ideas were submitted by delegates on the day of the event — see this blog post for the full list :-)

Several ideas were also submitted before the event…

  • reminding borrowers to return items on time so alerting via various channels, ie reminders in calendars (@damyantipatel)
  • Biggest lib problem I encounter: difficulty accessing online journals. Too many diff routes, systems, rules. (@msars)
  • A mashed ‘reading list’…perhaps something with the linking capabilities of SFX but list features of WorldCat lists !!! (@aekins)
  • Where to start?! Making better use of bib. and other data held in closed systems by getting it out onto OPAC and beyond (@pstainthorp)
  • How about importing RSS TOCs from journals directly into OPACs? (@lynncorrigan)
  • We’d love a checker for link resolvers that can check whether the links give full access, not just whether they link to a page.
  • How about mapping classmarks to gps for mobiles so students can locate books in lib? floor plans + coordinates? (@ejbull)

Many thanks to everyone who tweeted the initial ideas :)
