Eresources on LibraryWeb
          Path: Digital Library Projects  :  Eresources on LWEB

2008.  LWEB's presentation of E-Resources (ejournals and databases) is created by extracting, reformatting and indexing MARC catalog records from our Library management system (Voyager / CLIO).

Lucene and Java / JSP are used for searching and the creation of browse lists.

Both the ejournal and databases applications include subject browsing and searching output based on Columbia University  Libraries' HILCC application.  For the ejournal interface, HILCC is used to generate a browsable list of subject categories as well as an A-Z list of topical subjects for the ejournals site.

Access to Databases by Resource Type (e.g., dictionaries, directories, music scores) is done based on corresponding codes entered into local fields of the catalog record, that are used for Web sorting and display.   Details of the special cataloging procedures developed for E-Resource display are available in the Electronic Resources Cataloging Manual sec. 100.

Selectors and reference librarians, as well as the Electronic Resource Coordinator, may recommend that catalogers add specific keywords or variant titles to catalog records to enhance retrieval.
