Taking LibData to New Heights

Shane Nackerud, University of Minnesota - Twin Cities

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.

Shane Nackerud is the Web Services Coordinator University of Minnesota Libraries – Twin Cities. Johna Oberg is the Digital Scholarship and Services Librarian at Macalester College's DeWitt Wallace Library.
