Transcript of REPORT OF THE 27TH VTLS EMEA USER GROUP MEETING, LUND SWEDEN

REPORT OF THE 27TH VTLS EMEA USER GROUP MEETING, LUND SWEDEN, 25-27TH SEPTEMBER 2013
Introduction
VTLS EMEA UG is for VTLS customers in Europe, Middle East and Africa
Maklib has been using Virtua for the past 10 years
I have been the Lead librarian since 2004 January
Maklib was represented by two librarians and one IT staff
Server scripts for librarians
Virtua has several scripts that get us results previously unknown to me. e.g Extracting patron records by date range, modifying circulation rules
I can now as the DB admin for particular reports
RDA Implementation Scenarios
Number 3 - Flat file data structure as in the Card Catalogue
Number 2 - Linked bibliographic and authority records as in Virtua ILS
Number 1 - Relational/Object oriented data as in FRBR
RDA Scenario 1
FRBR can be implemented independently from RDA and likewise
VTLS offers scripts to identify and frbrise records that can be frbrised

Purchase Request Groups
How about users suggesting titles for purchase?
Having college librarians set up as a purchase request group to manage requests by the respective college teaching staff?
Of course a lot of work would have to be done by the systems librarian
Advanced circulation
Item bookings
Letting patrons book a particular item for use by a patron during a specific time period
The circulation backup
This is the circulation offline
Will need to be configured for each computer that can be used
Both check in and check out can be done
On internet return, circulation backup transaction files must be uploaded from @ workstation
Details will be worked out with the circulation librarian for all sections not previously using it

s
Everything I learnt is practical.
