Minrva 3.3 includes the Minrva core modules for all I-Share libraries including local catalog and I-Share catalog search, several popular library account functions such as logging in to view item due dates, renew items, and check on requested item statuses. Custom modules are available to subscribing I-Share Libraries, simply login to view your available modules.
At the University of Illinois Library location in Minrva, all new recommendation features have been added. Within the Recommendation module, Minrva users are provided with a list of suggested items from the Library collection. These items are recommended based on the user’s checked out history and favorite books within the Library’s VuFind system.
Within the Undergraduate Library location students can now use Wayfinder to see what e-books are related to their location in the Undergrad Library at Illinois; simply turn on Bluetooth within your mobile device so that Minrva can infer your location and suggest popularly circulating items along with digital content (e-books, and e-journals) related to your location within the building.
We updated the catalog search module so that you can now click through to your e-resources. If you are on campus you should be able to seamlessly access e-books as well as other e-content linked from VuFind. For those off campus, users will need to authenticate for the school providing access.
I-Share libraries can now choose to remove any core modules that they do not want displayed for their location in Minrva.
Various bug and stability fixes.
