This Great Idea uses the library’s catalog database to generate dynamic lists of new library resources for each academic department on its campus. It fulfills the desire by faculty and librarians with academic liaison assignments for up-to-date lists of new library resources in their assigned areas. This method simplifies maintenance of lists of new titles and aids academic liaison by providing a single, consistent access point to new resources. The dynamic pages are compiled by using the OPAC as a platform: connecting with a Z39.50 protocol, passing keywords and phrases along via the URL query string, parsing the data with PHP, and rendering the data on the web with a combination of PHP and JavaScript at http://www.edinboro.edu/departments/library/depts.dot. Analysis indicates the lists are used, and they have been well received.
