FirstSearch interface supports shared print initiatives

The display of shared print commitment information in FirstSearch is part of the initial stage of FirstSearch enhancements supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Shared print retention commitment information is now visible to all users in the following areas of the FirstSearch interface:

  • Advanced search limit to Shared print commitments only.
  • Brief records in search results indicate the number of libraries that have committed to retain an item.
  • Detailed records in search results indicate the number of libraries that have committed to retain an item.
  • A new Shared Print Commitment column displays on the list of all libraries that own the item and indicates which libraries have committed to retain it. Selecting the Committed to Retain link from the new column results in the display of local holdings details related to shared print from the associated MARC record.
