    The Workflows for Acquiring and Ingesting Content into a Discovery Service

    With library collections now predominantly electronic, there is more and more reliance on knowledgebases , those databases of metadata about e-resources that are provided by suppliers of e-resource management software (ERM), as well as by community organizations such as Jisc. A metadata librarian and a discovery service repository manager will provide a view of what it takes to actually get metadata from the supplier of the e-resource through the ingest and editorial processes of the knowledgebase provider and into the discovery service.

    Hacking Summon 2.0 the Elegant Way

    Libraries have long been adding content and customizations to vendor-provided web-based search interfaces, including discovery systems such as ProQuest s Summon service. Unlike solutions based on using an API, these approaches augment the vendor-designed user interface using library-provided JavaScript code. In this webinar, based on their Code4Lib paper Hacking Summon 2.0 The Elegant Way , you will learn how Virginia Tech University reverse-engineered the AngularJS-based Summon 2.0 interface to discover the modules, directives, controllers, and services it uses, and how they used AngularJS s built-in mechanisms to add desired customization and interactions.
