Good morning everyone and apologies for the cross-posting.
*The GIST development team at SUNY Geneseo is pleased to announce that
the GIST Acquisitions Manager has been made available for beta testing!*
This new version of GIST transforms ILLiad into a full fledged
acquisitions module, combining ILLiad's request management features with
* *Budget management*, saving you time by even selecting funds at
order based upon a user's department or status
* *Vendor managemen*t, including 20 preloaded vendors for quick
ordering such as Amazon, GOBI, and TitleSource3
* *Collection building profiles*, featuring the same Conspectus-driven
recommendation engine as our Gift and Deselection Manager
* *Item by item invoice management* right from within each ILLiad request
Thanks to the support of *Atlas Systems* and *OCLC*, these addons are
powered by *new standalone GIST database tables* that can be installed
on your local or OCLC-hosted servers. You no longer have to use ILLiad
transaction fields. (Installation details will be provided during the
full release of the Acquisitions Manager.)
Last, and certainly not least, the Acquisitions Manager includes new
versions of the GIST ILLiad webpages that are designed to work with
these new database tables.*They also include a new "Find My Item" widget
that gives users the ability to search by title and author keywords from
within the ILLiad request form.* This can greatly improve request
accuracy and the number of requests you can automate through Direct Request.
To learn more and watch new interactive demos of the Acquisitions
Manager, *visit our new home at http://www.gistlibrary.org.* If you're
interested in helping us beta test the Acquisitions Manager, please
contact us at dev.team at gistlibrary.org. We hope to release it to
everyone the first week of December so stay tuned!
Thanks for your continued support of GIST!
