The Library aims to increase visibility of its collections, making a greater proportion more immediately accessible to users with less staff intervention, and improving security.
Cataloguing targets for the year were exceeded. Work on a major enhancement to the current Integrated Catalogue system went ahead. The new PRIMO-based system will enable users to identify and obtain print and digital information sources regardless of format and location.
The Library aims to make catalogue records from 40 legacy systems available through a single online resource. Technology for cataloguing was delivered in February 2009 and the PRIMO resource discovery service was demonstrated, ready for completion in 2009/10.
