Attention LocatorPlus Users: NLM Needs Your Feedback on a New System to Replace LocatorPlus
The National Library of Medicine started the new Discovery and Delivery Platform Project in June 2013. The goal is to implement a new Web-based platform that provides innovative search and delivery of the wide range of NLM collection resources. The work will be carried out in phases with the initial goal of replacing LocatorPlus, the NLM online public access catalog at: http://locatorplus.gov/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?DB=local&PAGE=First
To ensure the new platform will continue to support the work of NN/LM libraries, we would like to informally gather information about your experiences with LocatorPlus and your needs and expectations for the new platform. We understand that not all libraries can respond within such a short timeframe. But we hope to receive as much feedback as possible.
Specifically, we hope to get feedback from staff who use LocatorPlus for any of the following tasks in “resource” and “primary access” libraries in each region:
- Processing interlibrary loan (ILL) requests
- Conducting searches for reference services
- Searching and/or downloading NLM bibliographic records for cataloging materials
- Web harvesting of NLM bibliographic and/or holdings data
- Other related tasks
Provide general feedback on how LocatorPlus meets your needs and what we could improve. Your comments can still be provided to Iris Lee at email@example.com.
- Subject: NN/LM Feedback
- To: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Deadline: Friday, August 23, 2013
Thank you very much in advance for your assistance with this project.
