Abstract

Heather Cai, Information Technology Services Librarian, McGill University. At McGill, professors have had to submit the lists of items they want placed on reserve via a web form in the Library's web site. The process required manual input of bibliographic data and other information about the course. To automate and simplify the process, the Library decided to use the "Save and Mail for Course Reserves" feature inside the ALEPH OPAC. The original design did not meet our expectations, in terms of the work flow, the interface, and the functionality. This session will cover the redesign of the implementation, including the restructured work flow, reconstructed web pages, and enhanced functionality.
