NASIG’s February Webinar: Troubleshooting Electronic Resources with ILL Data – February 18, 2016

NASIG‘s Continuing Education Committee is pleased to present the following webinar:

Troubleshooting Electronic Resources with ILL Data

Date: February 18, 2016

Time: 1pm (EST)

Length: 1 hour

Registration deadline: February 17, 2016


Troubleshooting electronic resource linking issues can seem to be an insurmountable task – so many resources, so little time. Using ILL data on cancelled requests for materials available online, the electronic resources staff at the Samford University Library detected problems with the implementation of their new link resolver as well as metadata communication issues between databases and their link resolver knowledgebase. The establishment of a workflow for communicating cancelled ILL transaction data on an ongoing basis has also improved the communication between electronic resources staff and the ILL department thus improving overall linking and customer services for our users. This presentation will demonstrate how a single cancelled ILL transaction can lead to the discovery and solution of systemic linking problems.
