Poster Abstracts

Del.icio.us Flakes for Breakfast! A Great Start
Elisa Cortez, MILS, Loma Linda University

ABSTRACT: Pageflakes is a tool that allows me to share favorite RSS feeds, provide a traditional resource guide, include widgets, and journal table of contents among other things. Quick and available from anywhere, the resources augment the information in our library’s website but highlight services offered by the library and liaison so that the information presented is tailored to their domain.

Developing a Core Collection of Print Journals for a Health Science Library
Brooks, Steven J., Business Intern; Drake, Carlene, MSLS, Director, University Libraries; Rais, Shirley, MLS, Chair Serials Dept., Loma Linda University

Objectives: To identify a core collection of print journals and determine which journals could be flipped to electronic format only without compromising the university library’s capacity to support research. Factors driving this project were a lack of space, user preferences for electronic journals, the rising costs of maintaining journal subscriptions in both print and online formats, and concerns about perpetual access to online-only subscriptions. The core print collection would ensure perpetual access to key journals.
Methods: Compile into one spreadsheet fifteen years of print usage data that existed in several different formats, including paper and electronic files. Evaluate the data to discover highest and lowest use print journals. Compare print use with online use that was already in spreadsheet format.
Results: Since some data was not comparable, it was decided to use the last six years of data to determine the core collection. A core collection of 300 current titles was identified to retain in print. The remaining 825 titles were targeted to be flipped to electronic only.
Conclusions: Converting the least used 73% of print journals to electronic-only format would not compromise the university libary’s capacity to support research. It was determined that a collection of about 27% of current print journal subscriptions accounted for 76% current print journal subscription usage. Combined online and print use statistics show that online use is causing overall serial use to increase even as print use is falling.

Lost in Translation: Web Reality Check
Bernard Helms and Cynthia Mae Helms, Andrews University

ABSTRACT: Acquisition and cataloging of foreign language materials often require translation of brochures, web sites, business letters, etc. There are several web sites that offer machine translation but we need to examine their ability to do the job. A comparison of seven web sites used to translate a German web site into English will be presented.
