Gosh that would be great to have useful overlap analysis
Amy Herman, Olympic College
09:30
Given that they own SerSol I'm happy to hear that they are finally improving overlap analysis.
Amy Herman, Olympic College
10:01
We have Anthrosource from Wiley
Nicole Longpre
10:17
I think we have a random journal from Wiley
Amy Herman, Olympic College
16:55
Another update on that list is "The current DigiCert SAML Certificate will expire on June 8th, 2022. If your institution uses this certificate, Ex Libris recommends that you consult with the IT dept. in your institution, and if required, replace the certificate for Alma and/or Primo VE" Do you think this affects any of us who use SAML to log in to Alma and Primo?
Amy Herman, Olympic College
18:01
OK thanks!

I have tried searching databases, and nothing comes up.
Nicole Longpre
21:35
I've added links to database to Alma, in a couple of ways.

Amy Herman, Olympic College
23:07
Some of our databases and in there and some aren't. I see there is a "Databases" Resource Type filter
Amy Herman, Olympic College
24:11
It is probably worth having "Database" results bumped higher on the results list in Primo so you don't have to already know to filter for it
Nicole Longpre
24:38
Yes the LDR field never says it is a database, which is super annoying
Nicole Longpre
24:58

I like managing our A-Z databases in LibGuides. Pretty easy to maintain. Easily add notes. But there is definitely a value to having databases in Primo too.
Lauren Bryant
33:40
The metadata is really important in that page for that structure. The database types/subjects are a great way for users to filter!
Ryer Banta Centralia College
35:13
Yep, like Lauren says, big value for users to choose based on subject/type/vendor with those drop-downs
Amy Herman, Olympic College
37:34
Oh I like the idea of collapsing the search box on Advanced Search results. It's annoying how large it is!
Nicole Longpre
43:13
We were told to figure out how we would react to this sort of thing.
Nicole Longpre
43:37
Can you run EZ Proxy on a virtual box or something?
Amy Herman, Olympic College
43:56
Ryer what are you doing for database access? Did the vendors set something up for you?
Amy Herman, Olympic College
44:11
Did libguides create a non-custom URL for you?
Lauren Bryant
47:28
We add the assets and they put them on this page for us :)
Nicole Longpre
49:33
Yes that search box does poorly in usability tests
Lauren Bryant
49:45
I feel that any search box on a library page is going to have that risk. We used to have the college's search box in our header and removed it.
Amy Herman, Olympic College
50:47
You can now re-label the "Login to LibApps" login at bottom right of libguides pages to something like, "Librarian login"
Amy Herman, Olympic College
51:09
We have lots of students trying to "log in to the library" with that link ha ha
Nicole Longpre
53:15
I don't want to lose control with hosted EZ Proxy
Nicole Longpre
55:21
Everything is AWS
Lynn
56:12
Bye all. Will get ready to man the circulation desk. Lynn

Thanks all!

Bye!
