November 17th: LIT Tech Talk, SearchFest!

Library IT is pleased to host two events for library staff on November 17th, 2015. Read on for more information!

November LIT Tech Talk:

The Tech Talk for November will be held at 11am on Tuesday November 17th in Bass L01.

Continuing to follow up on a request for more information on who does what in LIT, this month we will turn the spotlight on the Digital Library & Programming Group.

The tentative agenda is:

  • Spotlight on LIT staff: Digital Library & Programming
  • Digital Collections Search and Discovery at Yale Library


The last SearchFest! session before Quicksearch’s public debut on the Library front door in January will be held on November 17th at 12:30pm in Bass L06.

The goals of SearchFest!:

  • test out existing Orbis or Morris search strategies in our new unified discovery interface, Quicksearch.
  • demonstrate the features and functionality that are unique to Quicksearch
  • review the timeline for Quicksearch’s transition to production in January 2016
  • answer any questions from staff about how to use Quicksearch in either instruction or daily work

As with the first SearchFest!, there will also be pizza served at the beginning of each session.
