PDF - Published Version


This session will outline what the ALEPH X-Server is and how it is being exploited at Royal Holloway. Using simple Perl and XSLT, I will demonstrate possible uses of the X-Server, including: Search interfaces; Reading lists; Authentication; Embedding ALEPH search results into a web page; Displaying user account details. Audience: Library systems staff; other staff may be interested in the examples of how we exploit the X-Server. The demonstrations are intended for any level of expertise, but the detail of how they are achieved will require some understanding of xml, xslt and Perl (or similar scripting languages). Version: 14.2 and above, with X-Server available Educational outcome: Participants should be aware of how to find out if they have the X-Server installed, licensed and running. Participants should understand the functions available via the X-Server. Participants will see how the X-Server functions can be used in a service environment.
