Abstract

During the implementation of Primo version 3 that included MetaLib+, the UQAM libraries’ implementation committee evaluated the utility of this new functionality. Due to enough significant problems and missing functionality when compared to normal MetaLib we made the decision not to implement MetaLib+ until the bugs could be ironed out and it could be more fully developed. This presentation will describe the use of MetaLib within the libraries’ context and explain in detail why we could not implement MetaLib+. Harvard University currently is running both MetaLib and MetaLib+ in parallel. Although we would like to offer our users a single solution for aggregated searching of licensed electronic resources, we have found that MetaLib+ lacks certain features present in MetaLib, and therefore offer both options. This presentation will discuss these features and their importance to our research community.
