The DALNET Board has adopted a
strategic focus that has established an annual call to
committees. For 2014, the Board of Directors
work groups to review the strengths and weaknesses of the
system, including potential future needs of each area of library
services. To volunteer for one (or more) work
groups, please fill out this survey
Work will begin in the new year.
HIP Format Icons
Office personnel have added the Enterprise/Portfolio format icons to
member HIP catalogs. Over
a dozen typical format icons have been added to each of the DALNET
catalogs. If you don't see an icon for your favorite material
type configured yet, let us know and we'll see if we can add it.
If you have not already noticed
the new icons, take a look in your catalog or see a sample here
The DALNET office has once again produced an overview of library
systems that are in release or development. Systems
are continuing to move toward unified platforms to manage all aspects
of library resource management, discovery, and delivery services.
Also of note, DALNET shared system members can look forward to the
release of an all-new Horizon Web-based Cataloging "Lite"
module in 2014, with
circulation and other modules to follow.
