Dear Colleagues,


We will be launching a new Encore discovery interface for the Prospector union catalog in July 2010 (exact date yet to be announced).  As a preview to this event, we are having an Encore kickoff program on Tuesday, June 15th at Auraria Library.  Innovative Interfaces Inc (III) will be doing this program and it will provide a look at the new Prospector Encore interface.  If you are interested in attending please RSVP with Geri Virtue ([log in to unmask]) in the Alliance office.





Prospector Encore Kickoff



Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Location: Auraria Library, Denver, CO

Enhanced Learning Center (ELC B), First Floor

University of Colorado at Denver
1100 Lawrence St.
Denver, CO 80204



Cost:  Free


Audience:  Prospector committee members, reference staff, technical services staff or any library staff with an interest in the Encore discovery interface for Prospector


Register:  RSVP required with Geri Virtue ([log in to unmask]) in the Alliance office.  Seating is limited.


The culmination of the Encore Implementation for Prospector is this Encore kickoff program.   The kickoff is a chance for Innovative Interfaces to introduce Encore to the Alliance and for local library staff from Prospector libraries to see Encore in the union catalog environment.   The program will begin by Innovative Interfaces presenting the application and it will include plenty of time for questions and answers.  This session will provide a preliminary look at this new discovery interface for Prospector, and will assist us in making final decisions on the look-and-feel before the formal public Encore release that is currently scheduled for July 2010.
