Wiki WorldCat (WikiD) Pilot [OCLC]
Beginning in September, Open WorldCat users will be able to add content to WorldCat records using wikis. The pilot will give users the ability to add comments, see comments by others and add or edit other information they know about the record.
See Trials page for access and info.
A new trial for POIESIS: Philosophy Online Serials has been added to the trials page at http://brodei.lib.temple.edu/articles/trials.jsp. The updated trials listing should migrate to http://library.temple.edu/articles/trials.jsp by tomorrow.
When you click on an Ovid resource such as HealthSTAR you will now be taken directly into the database instead of the intermediary Ovid database menu. There is still a link to Ovid Gateway on the A-Z database listing should someone want to go to the Ovid db menu. In addition, when a user clicks on “Logoff” from within Ovid, she will be taken back to the A-Z database listing instead of the generic Ovid login screen.
TDNet put our Journal Finder service on a new server Friday morning. It’s still not snappy, but at least it seems to be usable now. Please continue to send me any feeback regarding Journal Finder performance.
The following journal is now online via Project Muse:

Red Cedar Review
The Database Trials page that had been residing on the brodei server has been moved to the regular library.temple.edu server. The direct URL is now http://library.temple.edu/articles/trials.jsp. A link to “Trials” appears near the top left of all the database listing pages along with the previous links to A-Z, by Subject, and Full-Text only. In addition there is a link from the Services>Faculty Services page.
Many of you may have noticed Journal Finder being even slower than usual lately. TDNet tells me they will have us on a new, faster server before the end of the day. I’ll let you know when & if this actually happens. In the meantime, try to keep the grumbling to a dull roar..
I’ve compiled an emergency database listing that groups a large percentage of our databases by platform. It is NOT comprehensive. I will send out a link to this post the next time the library web goes down (not that I have any foreknowledge of such an event!)
