A browse-able, virtual bookshelf of related items embedded into the Voyager OPAC.

Related Items Bookshelf — Faculty/Staff Sites

Purpose When a user searches for a particular book in the library stacks, she inevitably will see many related books on the surrounding shelves, probably before even finding the target item. In a good OPAC, there are often faceted browsing options for finding related items, however they require explicit user action and are often ignored. This virtual bookshelf is meant to be an unobtrusive but visually engaging presence to mimic the real-world effect of browsing discovery. Features The Related Items Bookshelf is a widget embedded into the bottom of a record page in Voyager WebVoyage. The user may: The library may: Choose between Syndetics and Google Book Search cover images. Demo You can see the Related Items Bookshelf installed in the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh's WebVoyage OPAC.

Voyager : Tomcat WebVoyáge : Canned Links

There is no longer a need for adding DB=local to the URL nor is there a need to remove session state information (e.g. the PID) from the URL. Good news, bad news The good news is that canned links should be much simpler to create under Tomcat WebVoyáge. Skin note A persistent link does not incorporate session state information.
