Using Request in Next Generation Melvyl (WCL)
[originally posted as “Next Generation Melvyl – Evaluation Period Begins 8/19/09,” August 31, 2009]
On 8/19/09, several configuration changes are being implemented as we point to NGM:
The Request button will take users directly to the Request service.
- When users click on the Request button, they will be taken directly to Request rather than an intermediary UC-eLinks screen. Full integration of Request and NGM will take place later this fall though the experience for end-users will remain the same.
All Request buttons will be named the same (Request) and will appear at Levels 2 and 3 on a record for an item not available locally.
- If an item is not held at the local campus but is available at UC Libraries (Level 2) and WorldCat Local Libraries (Level 3), a Request button will appear at both Level 2 and 3. If the item is only held at one of those levels, the Request button will only appear once.
