Follow Up to the "Naming a 'Favorites' System for a Library" Survey

*Apologies for cross-posting *

A few weeks ago, I sent a link to a quick poll to a couple of listservs looking for information about what libraries have chosen to name their "save this for later" or "favorite" tool on the site. A handful of folks asked for the summarized results. I wrote up a brief summary on our library's technology blog at
http://mblog.lib.umich.edu/blt/archives/2012/03/bookmarks_favor.html

Subject: Quick Survey: Naming a "Favorites" System for a Library

*Apologies for cross-posting *

We're working on a tool for our library website that will allow users to save a catalog entry, a link to a journal or database, or an article citation, for future use. There are a variety of names for this kind of tool (Favorites, Saved Items, Save for Later, Bookshelf, and so on), and I'd like to learn a bit from what you've done.  While many licensed databases and other web sites have this mechanism, I'm particularly interested in library-built systems.

The survey should take less than 3 minutes to complete:

Please feel free to share with others as appropriate. I'm happy to summarize the results of the survey after it closes on February 20.

Re: Off-Topic: Marking e-readers for circulation

The ereaders (ipod, ipads) we purchased from Apple came with our Libraries name, etc. on them, that was a plus that Apple gave us.  The ipods cost from $199 (8GB) -$299 (32GB).  We also circulate the SONY and the NOOK ereaders.  You can etch information on them but be very careful.

I'm sure there's an etching or engraving machine that would do the job.

Dawn, how many e-readers and what kind of e-readers are you circulating?

Can you share how much each cost?

Do you have a budget for replacements/upgrades?

Re: Off-Topic: Marking e-readers for circulation

We just started an eReader circulation program in our library and "went live" with it today. A local business owner with a laser engraving machine engraved our library's logo and name on the back, along with the barcode sticker numbers for each device (in case the stickers detach). The device we chose to circluate is the Nook simple touch. It has a rubberized back and the engraving shows up quite well on the devices.

"Library Terms" website updated, archived

Web4Lib, Usability4Lib (apologies for cross posting) --


The "Library Terms That Users Understand" website, sometimes mentioned in these discussions, is now 10 years old.  While it's still relevant and useful, I believe it has pretty much made its point.

So, I've updated the resource list and condensed the site into a single page.  It's still available, but won't be updated with new material.


Also, since my personal website won't be up forever, this page has been permanently archived in the University of California eScholarship repository.  I encourage folks to point links or bookmarks to this URL:


Many thanks to everyone who has contributed data to this effort!

Free Webcast > There's an App for That ! > Friday > March 9 > 1 PM -2 PM CT

 

Applications, or “apps,” can provide an amazing amount of flexibility and interaction for students. The ability for instructors to provide an additional way for students to engage with their content is revolutionizing education. In this session, we will demonstrate apps that we have found helpful for students and faculty members alike. In addition, we will demonstrate apps across multiple platforms.
