Are your Library links up to date in Stream?

June 24, 2013

Staff members, are your Library links up to date in Stream? When papers are rolled over, old Library content is often included, leading to frustration for students trying to use resources that no longer work properly. If you have not already been in contact with a Librarian this year to update the Library content, then please take a minute to check your Stream paper…

Library Block

  • Does your Library block (in either of the side columns) include the Discover search box as shown below? This is the current search box and any others (such as the Catalogue) need to be replaced.

  • Does your Library block mention the Encore or Classic catalogues? These are no longer current, and need to be changed to the  Library Catalogue.
  • Does your Library block have any broken links?
  • It is very easy to replace an old Library block with the current one:
    • Turn on editing
    • Delete the old Library block
    • Go to the dropdown box to add a new block, select Massey Library
    • Re-position the new block to where you want it
  • If you would prefer us to update the block for you, or you would like any paper-specific Library content added to the block, please contact your Subject Librarian.

Other Library Content in Stream

  • Do you have Library content in the central panel of Stream that you think may be out of date? Again, clues would be:
    • no mention of Discover, our main search tool
    • references to the old Encore or Classic catalogues
    • broken links to Library web pages or specific resources, such as journal articles, books or chapters
  • If you do identify out of date content, please delete it, update it yourself, or contact your Subject Librarian.
