[CODE4LIB] Assignment planner-calculator use

2015-01-23 Thread Jason Stirnaman
One of our librarians came across K-State's Assignment Planner 
http://www.lib.k-state.edu/apps/ap/
which is based on Minnesota/Minitex's 
http://sourceforge.net/projects/research-calc/
We're curious to hear:
  1. some anecdotes as to how much use this kind of service gets and
  2. if there are worthy alternatives (free or fee)?

Contact me directly if you prefer.

Thanks,
Jason

Hi Jason,
I can answer the first question. Since we launched it in Nov/2013 we had
278 assignments scheduled through the system.
Feel free to contact me if you need any other information.
