Bookmarklets

From Help Wiki

Information about the Evergreen Library can be found here: http://evergreen.edu/library

Bookmarklets let you do things like click a button or choose a bookmark when you are looking at a book on Amazon and automatically look it up in Evergreen's catalog, or in the Timberland catalog, or automatically create an email with the information for a purchase request that you can then edit and send to Shelly Swelland, who handles this for our library. (swellands@evergreen.edu). Faculty can also use these to create an email with a list of books and ordering information to send to Wendy Sorrell in the bookstore and Penny Hinojosa in SEM II to order texts and desk copies for a program. The bookmarklet scripts and information about using them are available at http://academic.evergreen.edu/c/curtzt/TESCBookmarklets.html.

Saving bibliographic information about the books from the catalog The Booklist button on our catalogue pages and the Export button on Summit search pages let you save information about books you look up, and then display the list and copy or print it, save it to disk, or email it in various formats including Pro-Cite or End-Note. (If you have a list, the Export List or Export BookCart buttons appear on the pages.) (The Full Display option’s the only one with the call number – unfortunately, it contains a lot you probably don’t care about too.)

Click the green Summit button right above the area for typing in your search information (or over on the right of the page for a particular book) to go from looking up a book in our catalog to looking it up in the huge catalogue through which we share our collection with a couple of dozen institutions, and requesting a copy if ours is checked out or we don’t own it. Courier delivery to the circulation hold shelf takes three days to a week or so; they notify you by email if you’ve set up your personal information in the web catalog to request that.

If you click the Request button while you're looking at the entry for a book, the Library will get it off the shelf for you; then you can pick your books up at the Circulation Desk the next day (if you aren't in a hurry, and don't mind missing the chance to browse while you're looking for them on the shelves yourself).
