Networked Resources Redefinition Implementation Group: Update
Block, David; Hyland, Nan; Morris, Maureen; Mistlebauer, Holly; Kurth, Marty
Reporting to the Library Gateway Committee, the Networked Resources Redefinition Implementation Group (NR-RIG) is charged to: (1) Redesign the Networked Resources catalog to give more prominence to resources of significant reference or research value by excluding certain genres of material, most notably e-journals and e-books, from the public view of Networked Resources. (2) Undertake a user study to determine current needs and behavior patterns of Networked Resources users before any significant redesign or redefinition is undertaken. (3) Determine whether some type of separate listing or database of e-journals is needed either from the Library Gateway home page or from some intermediate "Networked Resources" index page and the resources that would be required to create and maintain such a list. (4) Redesign the Networked Resources public interface to provide better visual cues to distinguish between those types of resources that will remain in the Networked Resources catalog; (5) Redesign the Networked Resources browsable subject captions to provide more balanced access across disciplines to those types of resources remaining in the Networked Resources catalog.
