AARLIN, Metalib & SFX Streamlining information Tony Davies 1. AARLIN Project 2.

AARLIN portal software 3. AARLIN linking software What is AARLIN?

Streamline access to information by providing a single easy to use search portal providing access to the complete range of library resources AARLIN project has been developed in two stages: 2001

Pilot 2002-04 Implementation 21 universities are participating members

Based at La Trobe University The need for AARLIN Educational institutions are spending huge amounts on online information resources

Yet a recent study showed that 45% of students start their research using Google Only 10% start with the library catalogue

Reasons for using Google: easy to use, always get results Source: EDNER Issues Paper (8) 2002

A Monash University study showed that users encounter a range of problems using library databases: they have difficulty determining which databases to use they are confused by multiple search interfaces they have problems with multiple sign-ons When deciding which databases to use, the top

response from students was trial and error - Monash Library Database Usage Survey, 2001 In 1994 Swinburne had 2 web databases

In 2004 Swinburne has over 250 web databases Also dozens of library catalogues, search engines, subject gateways, eprint servers

Dozens of different platforms with different search requirements Aims of AARLIN The major aim of AARLIN is to provide users with a resource discovery tool that emulates the ease of use of Internet search engines such as Google, while at the

same time guiding them to choosing relevant resources, using a single sign-on. - Kate Roberts, AARLIN Project Officer, 2001 Phase 1 Prototype (2001) Major funding from the Australian Research Council

Demonstration of proof of concept Selection of Ex Libris software: Metalib & SFX

3 month pilot for staff & researchers at 6 universities: Flinders University La Trobe University Murdoch University Swinburne Univ of Tech University of Canberra Victoria University

Phase 2 Implementation (2002-04) 2002 Funding from DEST $2.8 million

Selected new versions of Metalib & SFX 2003

Installation, training and rollout at 21 universities 2004

Go live! Initially to staff and researchers, followed by undergraduates 21 participating universities Australian Defence Force Academy Swinburne University of Technology

Central Queensland University University of Adelaide Charles Darwin University University of Ballarat Edith Cowan University

University of Canberra Flinders University James Cook University La Trobe University Monash University Murdoch University RMIT University

University of Melbourne University of New England University of South Australia University of Southern Queensland University of Tasmania University of Wollongong Victoria University

Metalib & AARLIN The Metalib software is installed on the AARLIN servers at La Trobe University

Each institution has its own instance of the Metalib software which can be customised Each institutions Metalib only searches that institutions resources SFX Context sensitive linking

Context sensitive linking Linking between online resources has been around for a while

The problem is that a lot of links were duds leading to: pages that had disappeared pages you werent allowed to access What we need are appropriate links, links that only appear when they lead to content or a service that is

available to the user Thats what SFX does SFX menu for an article SFX menu for an article

La Trobe & Monash have gone live to staff and researchers using Metalib 2 Swinburne and most other AARLIN sites are waiting for Metalib 3 - due to be installed late July

Swinburne and 4 other sites will pilot undergraduate student access this year AARLIN Project funding ceases at end of 2004
