Taking LibData to New Heights
In addition to a brief overview of the LibData system, this session will provide examples of how LibData can be extended to provide interactive and dynamic web content based on data categories or user profiles. Specific topics include Macalester College's use of LibData to create a facet-based A-Z list of e-resources, and the exciting LibData applications developed at the University of Minnesota, which include a push-based Portal system using user identification strings (affinity strings), automatic course resource suggestions, and AlephX integration.
