9:00 - 9:45 Georgia's Virtual Library SFX Pilot Project (PPT online)
Selden Deemer (Emory University), Katie Gohn (University System of Georgia), Lauren Fancher (University System of Georgia)
Georgia's virtual library GALILEO and the four largest private and public research libraries in the state (Emory, Georgia Tech, Georgia State, and University of Georgia) conducted a recent pilot of a centrally-hosted implementation of SFX. Pilot team members review their strategies for collaboration and the successful outcomes of the pilot.
9:45 - 10:30 Enhancing Linking to IEEE Conference Proceedings: A Model for Managing eProceedings (PPT online)
Mark Dehmlow (University of Notre Dame)
Conference proceedings are especially challenging to citation-linking services because they frequently are both monographic and serial at the same time. Depending on the index you use, Open URLs may contain only the conference ISSN or ISBN, creating full text linking issues for SFX. We have developed a MySQL database that interfaces with the IEEE target to deliver item level full text linking regardless of which of the two standard numbers are provided. This presentation will detail why we created a database solution, how it works with SFX, and how it is maintained.
10:30 - 10:45 MarcIt Service (PPT online)
Cassandra Targett (Ex Libris)
10:45 - 11:00 Break
11:00 - 11:45 That Was Fast - from 0 to 6000 records in minutes (PPT online)
Bruno Mastronianni and Carmel Yurochko (Duquesne University)
Our reference staff and our patrons were complaining about how difficult it was to find online full text journals. Some were in the a-z list, some were in the catalog, some were only in the vendor's site. Using SFX and MarcIt we were able to load MARC records after they were edited to include our customization (Click here to FindIt) with a single link that takes patrons directly to the journal using the sfx menu.

Finally, present methods for user education, in order to make both faculty and students aware of how to utilize MetaLib.
