Ekstrom Library to discontinue e-reserve service

Ekstrom Library will discontinue offering electronic course reserve services and support at the end of the Spring 2014 semester.  Because most classes are already providing access to course reading materials through Blackboard, Ekstrom Circulation will discontinue this service. During this transition, The Delphi Center will be helping to assist Faculty in becoming more independent in controlling their online course content.

The Circulation Department will continue to offer hard copy course reserve material support, which can be utilized by visiting Course Reserve Form for Hard Copy Materials.

Faculty wishing to place audio/visual materials on reserve for their classes will want to bookmark the Ekstrom Library Media Course Reserve Form.

Faculty new to Blackboard or in need of additional support for existing online courses will find a wealth of information and resources at the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning. Contact Linda Leake at (502) 852-4332 or linda.leake@louisville.edu.

Questions about copyright and fair use? The Copyright Guidelines page may address all of your concerns in one click. If you need copyright clearance for particular materials, Copyright Permission Services Coordinator Larry Raymond can steer you in the right direction. Contact Larry at (502) 852-5099 or by email at lraymond@louisville.edu.

The Library will offer Document Delivery services for faculty who need electronic copies of the library’s print holdings. You can get specific details about Document Delivery and Interlibrary Loan services on the Interlibrary Loan website.

Additional questions or concerns? Contact the Ekstrom Library Circulation Department at (502) 852-5926.

Frequently asked questions.

Journal impact factors: what are they, how to find them

The impact factor is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to recent articles published in a journal. It is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field, with journals with higher impact factors deemed to be more important than those with lower ones. Use the Journal Citation Reports database, available on the Kornhauser Health Sciences Library homepage and on Databases: A to Z, to determine the impact factor for a journal.

Minerva Version of the Catalog to be Retired

Why is the library catalog changing from Minerva to WorldCat Local?

You may have noticed that the Minerva search box disappeared from the new University Libraries’ webpage. WorldCat Local has been chosen as our new catalog. It offers far more resources to our users than the Minerva catalog does. Minerva's catalog offers information only on the materials held at the University of Louisville Libraries, while WorldCat Local accesses books, articles, videos, and other items from all over the world. With its intuitive interface researchers can then narrow results by location, format and full-text availability.

Book records in WorldCat Local include an image of the book as well as the standard information that Minerva provided: call number, availability, subject headings, citation and description. WorldCat Local will also indicate libraries nearby that have the item if we don’t have it here at UofL. Articles, which Minerva does not search at all, can be limited to peer-reviewed and/or full-text availability. Overall, the functionality of the WorldCat Local tool far exceeds the functionality of the Minerva catalog.

musical scoresYesYes
UofL archival materialYesNo
other material from UofL LibrariesYesYes
materials from nearby librariesNoYes
materials from libraries around the worldNoYes
free e-resourcesNoYes
UofL's Digital CollectionsNoNo

Why now?

It comes down to time and money. Reductions in budget and staff have made us look for ways to provide the same level of service with less hours of staff time. For the last few years our staff has been doing double duty updating both versions of the catalog. This has meant many staff hours creating and updating records in the two systems and managing changes to the Minerva interface. Officially going with WorldCat Local as our library catalog will eliminate the duplication of effort and help provide our patrons with a single interface for finding the up-to-date information they need.

Why didn’t we do this sooner?

We introduced WorldCat Local on a pilot basis a few years ago. We wanted to make sure that it would meet the needs of our researchers as well as fulfill the University Libraries’ needs for a catalog. We have materials that are available through Minerva, such as University records and archival manuscripts, that have been problematic to access through WorldCat Local. The benefits of moving to WorldCat Local outweigh these difficulties. During the changeover our staff will work out methods to keep these materials available and make the system work with other library systems.

How long will Minerva be available?

Minerva will be available until May 1, 2014 when it is officially retired.

        "This I Believe" essay features Kornhauser Health Sciences Library

        "The Stillness of the Library" an audio essay by UofL medical school alumnus, Clint Morehead, MD, was featured last week on the radio feature, "This I Believe", heard locally on Bob Edwards' Weekend, broadcast by local NPR affiliate, WFPL.  While Dr. Morehead doesn't specifically mention the name Kornhauser Health Sciences Library, his description of the building certainly matches Kornhauser Library and we who work here frequently saw him in a study room practicing his "solitary ritual", studying for long hours each day.  It paid off;  Dr. Morehead is currently a palliative care physician in San Diego, California.

        This I Believe, Inc., was founded in 2004 as an independent, not-for-profit organization that engages people of all ages  in writing, sharing, and discussing brief essays about the core values that guide their  lives.

        Visitor wireless access pilot project underway

        UofL's Office of Information Technology has launched a pilot project to make access to our wireless network easier for campus visitors. The pilot is available in limited places on campus for now, including Ekstrom Library and the courtyard outside Kornhauser Health Sciences Library.

        Visitors to campus can access the wireless network by choosing "ulvisitor" under the wireless networks available on their mobile device.
