|2005 - 082||WEBFEAT 3.0|
An upgrade to WebFeat, version 3.0, has been completed. WebFeat is the consolidated search product that is available from the LINCPac Databases tab. This product allows patrons to input one search term and search across 12 databases at the same time.
Although the appearance of this product has changed little, there is new functionality included with this upgrade. This is what is new:
1. A search on all resources can be limited to publication date ranges
|2005 - 083||DYNIX MERGER ANNOUNCED|
|We just received word of the merger of the LINC library automation company, Dynix, with Sirsi, another library automation company. We have few details at this time, but read the press release at: http://www.sirsidynix.com/releases.html.|
|2005 - 084||RPA|
Remote Patron Authentication is now working. This Horizon product is being used to authenticate patron access to reference databases. This product is invoked on LINCPac, when patrons click on the Databases tab. In a library that has its own LINCPac and has provided us with ip numbers for its workstations, the patron will not see the authentication page. If the patron is accessing this resource from outside the library, they will be required to input their patron barcode to get access to the reference resources.
If your library uses filtering software, the RPA server needs to be cleared to give access to the databases within your library. The url for RPA is: http://188.8.131.52/rpa/webauth.exe?.
|2005 - 085||HORIZON 7.4/LINPAC 4.0 RELEASED|
Dynix has announced the general release of Horizon 7.4 and LINCPac 4.0. We have requested a date for this upgrade during the first part of August, although this has not yet been confirmed. More information will be released as it becomes available.
Dynix has also announced the recommended PC specifications for workstations that will utilize Horizon 7.4 and LINCPac 4.0. Please check these specifications at: http://www.ltls.org/HorizonUpgrade/Horizon_Specs.htm and make sure the workstations in your library adhere to these requirements.
