As of mid-November 2013, Denver Public Library, the largest public library in Colorado is available once again in Prospector. You can now request items in Prospector with a DPL library card and patrons from other Prospector libraries can request DPL items. With 25 branch libraries and over 1 million items, DPL adds great value and unique content to Prospector. They are one of the biggest libraries in terms of lending and borrowing through Prospector and we are very happy to have them back!
The Prospector Director's annual meeting is on Thursday, Oct 31 at the CO Alliance conference room from 1:00-4:00pm. Tom Jacobsen of Innovative Interfaces will provide an update on INN-Reach and future directions. Rose Nelson from the Alliance will provide a status report on Prospector. Jimmy Thomas will then provide an update on Marmot, followed by George Machovec who will provide an update on the Prospector budget. There will be time for discussion after the presentations.
This year for Open Access Week, we're highlighting how some of our Alliance Digital Repository member institutions are using our Islandora/Fedora repository platform to support open access to research.
Our members use their digital repository sites to provide access to traditional results of research such as journal articles, reports, theses, and dissertations, as well as to digital audio and video files created during original research.
