> It's about time SABIO was re-defined as its scope is ever- growing and changing.
> re: Confusion about what system to use, what system they're in. Goal should be that it doesn't matter to the user where they are. It should be transparent to them. What should matter is ease of acquiring the necessary info. -Cheech
> This would probably have the biggest impact on our current customers.
> Yes! I agree
> What data (specific) would you baseline?
> A very definite need for this, as many (most?) customers are lost. How will this group approach the problem differently? Great idea!
> This is our future. Excellent project but I'm not sure the time frame is realistic.
> Yes, SABIO as we now know it is probably just one component in UA library's info package. Linking full-text holdings & variety of databases, indexes, etc. will be crucial too (be sure & not leave it out) I really like this one!
> Greatly needed by our users - lots of confusion of what's on our systems - There are not reference staff available all the hours the library is open.
> We need this now badly; but charge is rather broad.
> Needed!! Good project but is this feasible to finish by May 30, 1997? Maybe too broad.
> If I had to vote on one project, this would be it.
> I think this project is critically needed. Benefits the customers upfront... & also benefits the library.
> Very good plan - this will help move us to getting people more directly to what they need rather than assuming prior knowledge of SABIO component parts.
> Patrons not understanding where they are searching is one of the most common problems encountered at the reference desk; recent screen re-design has helped but there is still much room to improve.
