I'm sending along another set of development requirements for community
feedback and questions. The MassLNC Development Initiative is
considering funding for a project to allow users to sort holdings by
geographic proximity. The user can either manually enter their current
location or click a location marker to have their browser automatically
detect their location. An Evergreen site could also set their catalog to
default to sorting by geographic location, in which case the preferred
library or other criteria might be used to identify the default
location. There is also an option to display holdings a map.
The full set of requirements is available at http://masslnc.org/node/3404.
Feel free to send along any feedback you might have! We're hoping to
begin seeking quotes for this and the patron note consolidation project
(https://markmail.org/message/7itgyexmbzrfjg7g) very soon.
Also, many thanks to the MassLNC development partners who provided
feedback to create these initial requirements and/or are providing
funding for this projects: CW MARS, NOBLE, Bibliomation, BC Libraries,
Georgia PINES, Evergreen Indiana, Lake Agassiz Regional Library /
Northwest Regional Library and Howe Library.
