NEBASE Closure

Yesterday was NEBASE’s last official day as an OCLC network and this will be the closing post to N3.

The Nebraska Library Commission would like to thank NEBASE members for their support over the last 33 years. We would like to thank those who served as our representatives to Users and Members Council, those who served on the NEBASE Advisory Council, and past and present NEBASE staff.

Remember, your final NEBASE billing for June will be sent by us around the middle of July. Future invoices for OCLC products and services (except for CatExpress, WebDewey, and NetLibrary) will come from BCR.

Christa Burns will continue to coordinate group purchases of CatExpress, WebDewey, and NetLibrary.

For all other OCLC products and services as well as technical support, you will need to contact:

  • Ordering, renewals, billing—When you contact BCR, 1-800-397-1552 or support@bcr.org, you will talk with Chris Cook, Ellie Nowicki, or Marisa Wood.

  • BCR Communications regarding OCLC—Check out BCR’s News page to subscribe to their newsletter, sign up for RSS feeds, and find other timely information.

  • Technical support—You will call OCLC Support, 1-800-848-5800, or support@oclc.org

  • Training opportunities—Check out BCR’s Continuing Education & Training page and OCLC’s Training Portal for listings from all Partners.

Since there will no longer be a “network” at the Library Commission and our programs have expanded greatly over the years, the name of our department, Network Services, has changed to Technology and Access Services (TechAccess for short).

Please be sure to check out future TechAccess activities on the Library Commission’s NCompass Blog.

New FirstSearch option: CONTENTdm

Entry Categories: Digitization & Preservation   Reference  

OCLC has expanded our subscription to the FirstSearch Base® Package to include access to an entry-level, hosted version of CONTENTdm for digital collection building at no additional charge to your library. The Base Package is the group of FirstSearch databases that the Nebraska Library Commission purchases for all Nebraskans as part of NebraskAccess.

What is CONTENTdm?
OCLC’s CONTENTdm Digital Collection Management Software can make everything in your digital collections available to everyone, everywhere. No matter the format—student projects, local history archives, newspapers, books, maps, slide libraries or audio/video—CONTENTdm can handle the storage, management and delivery of your collections to users across the Web.

If you are not familiar with CONTENTdm databases, take a look at Nebraska Memories. This database, maintained by the Nebraska Library Commission, focuses on Nebraska-related historical materials. Participation in Nebraska Memories continues to be encouraged and the Library Commission continues to offer free digitization of up to 50 items for contribution to Nebraska Memories. However, if you have materials that don’t fit Nebraska Memories criteria, you might want to consider this optional “quick start” service.

As a Nebraska library receiving FirstSearch through NebraskAccess, you are eligible for 10GB of storage for up to 3,000 digital items. If you find that your requirements exceed this limit, BCR or OCLC will work with you to review purchasing options to continue seamless growth of your collections. Libraries that currently have a CONTENTdm license may choose to take advantage of this offer and utilize CONTENTdm “quick start” as a second implementation to support additional projects.

The goal of this Base Package addition is to facilitate access to your library’s unique digital resources via the Web, and to do so in a way that highlights your unique online presence. Connecting these resources through WorldCat® also allows users to more easily find high-quality materials through local libraries.

If you have questions about any of these details, please contact Devra Dragos by phone 800-307-2665, 402-471-4335 or e-mail.

NEBASE Members to Transition to BCR

As announced previously, the Nebraska Library Commission’s NEBASE department will cease to exist as an OCLC network in July 2009. Under OCLC’s new Partner structure, OCLC member libraries may go to any OCLC partner or directly to OCLC for billing, ordering and training.

After talks with several OCLC networks, consultation with the NEBASE Advisory Council and much consideration, we have made the recommendation to transfer Nebraska OCLC libraries to BCR (Bibliographical Center for Research) for the initial transition in billing, renewals and ordering. At any time after August 1st, libraries may request to be transferred to another OCLC Partner or go directly to OCLC.

BCR, founded in 1935 and headquartered in Aurora, Colorado, has been a provider of OCLC products and services since 1976 and will continue to be an OCLC Partner for billing, marketing and training. OCLC member libraries using BCR’s services currently are found in Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. For more information about BCR, visit http://www.BCR.org.

Staff from Nebraska OCLC member libraries will be able to attend BCR’s OCLC training—online or in-person at any location—at BCR member pricing. Libraries may learn about OCLC training opportunities through BCR’s training calendar or through a new national training calendar that OCLC will host starting in July 2009.

Under the new Partner system, Nebraska OCLC member libraries will be billed for OCLC cataloging subscriptions, ILL subscriptions, etc., without any added network administrative or membership fees. Price quotes for the coming fiscal year will be issued next week.

NEBASE will continue to handle invoicing through the June 2009 activity (invoices sent in July). Renewals, ordering, training and technical support will continue through June 30, 2009. Effective with your July invoices (sent in August 2009), your invoices will come from BCR. As of July 1, 2009, all technical support calls should go directly to OCLC (1-800-848-5800) and BCR will provide billing support assistance.

The Nebraska Library Commission will continue to coordinate CatExpress and WebDewey group purchases. NLC will also continue to provide access to statewide database subscriptions through NebraskAccess. And NLC will continue to negotiate vendor discounts and purchasing of other electronic resources for Nebraska libraries individually or in groups.

If you have questions about the transition, please contact Christa Burns, 471-3107 or 800-307-2665, or Devra Dragos, 471-4335 or 800-307-2665.

OCLC's new Web Harvester captures Web content to add to digital collections

Entry Categories: Cataloging   Digitization & Preservation  

OCLC is now offering the Web Harvester, a new product that allows libraries and other cultural heritage institutions to capture and add Web content to their digital collections managed by CONTENTdm software. OCLC’s Web Harvester addresses the need to store and provide access to otherwise highly transient information resources that solely exist on Web sites.

OCLC’s Web Harvester evolved from collaboration with several state libraries, state archives and universities over a period of seven years. Participants emphasized the increasing importance of collecting and managing Web-based content as information resources move online, yet remain within libraries’ and archives’ collection scopes.

The Web Harvester is integrated into library workflows, allowing library staff to capture content as part of the cataloging process. The captured content is then sent to the organization’s digital collections where it can be managed with other CONTENTdm digital content.

Antelope County Content Added to Nebraska Memories

Entry Categories: Digitization & Preservation  

The Antelope County Historical Society is the most recent addition to the list of Nebraska Memories participants. Searchers of the Nebraska Memories database can now find a small collection of digitized glass plate negatives from the historical society. These are images of various people, buildings and scenes in and around Neligh and Antelope County. The Society’s photograph collection is continually expanding and they hope to have about 200 pictures of historical significance digitized and available through Nebraska Memories.

The Antelope County Historical Society in Neligh, in partnership with the Raymond A. Whitwer Tilden Public Library in northeast Nebraska, received an LSTA grant for the digitization of a collection of large (4x6 to 8x10) glass plate negatives.

Go ahead and take a look at the Nebraska Memories web site to see the new stuff from Antelope County. Let us know what you think using the online survey.

If your library or other cultural heritage institution in town has material that would fit into Nebraska Memories give us a call or email so we can talk about digitization options. The Commission can scan items for you and help you create the cataloging records needed to be part of the Nebraska Memories project. We would love to have your materials included in the site.

Welcome to the New N3!

Welcome Nebraska librarians to the new version of the N3 newsletter.

In the Fall 2006 NEBASE Survey you asked for more timely information, as well as information in the form of a blog. With this new version of the N3, Nebraska Library Commission Network Services News, we are responding to both of these requests.

Previously N3 was published online every other month. Now, it will be continuously updated with content. We will post new items as we write them or as new content is made available to us from OCLC or our other library partners. This should help keep you up to date with everything happening in all areas of Network Services including, NEBASE, OCLC News, Databases, Training, Discounts and more.

Also, you can now subscribe to N3 via an RSS feed and have the posts go directly to your RSS aggregator service. You no longer need to go find our web site, the content will be pushed directly to your own account. You can also provide us or the library community with comments about any N3 post.

We hope this new method of delivery will meet each of your needs. Please let us know what you think of the new N3.
