The GIST Team and IDS Project are pleased to announce that the next
generation of GIST tools have been released and are ready for you to
customize and streamline your acquisitions, collection development, and
interlibrary loan processes & workflow.
New GIST Tool:
The GIST Acquisitions Manager is a new type of acquisitions system built
within ILLiad using new GIST tables and GIST Addons. It provides.
. Management of fund/budgets - with immediate fund balance checking
at the point of review or purchasing
o GIST matches the funds with the requesters automatically.
o GIST manages a single ILL purchase on demand fund to large sets of
collection development funds.
. Custom Conspectus - GIST recommends purchase or review when a
request meets your collection building profile.
o Enable purchasing where ILL requests for materials not held in your
consortia but fit your collection building profile.
o Adjust almost 1,600 Library of Congress classification and Dewey
divisions to highlight where you want to grow your collection.
. Streamlined and flexible acquisition workflow
o Using GIST, you customize the services and process the way you want to
enhance your ILL purchase on demand or fully share buy-borrow strategies
that build a strong and diverse collection.
o Based on valued data, route requests automatically and make decisions
about buy or borrow fast.
. Select the web services you want in your workflow; Connexion,
Gobi, etc. including adding some 30 addons:
Also in this release - a new discovery widget for your standalone ILLiad
. Requesters only have to add an author and title, or ISBN to
search Worldcat from within the blank request form to discover exactly what
they want you to buy or borrow - this helps you streamline your workflows
and provide accurate services.
