15minSearchCate BoeremaQuery search on Users and Requests There was a highly ranked "Boolean search" UXPROD which has been broken down into two separate features:

1. Boolean/Query Search for Requests -
2. Boolean/Query Search for Users -

Let's discuss this solution, review the wireframes etc. Does this seem important? What types of searches might you conduct using this capability?

Loans actions in circulation log

  • What information needs to be logged?
  • Wire frame: Is there additional information we need in the table?
  • logging the self checkout machine's transactions?
    • might be a different user which could be logged or a different service point
  • Does the log include fine / fee ? yes
  • logging notes
  • loan statuses: cancelled, recently returned, in transit (Use Case: tracking missing Items)
    • should we then differentiate the in transit statuses?
  • Proxy activity is still not a priority but it would be nice to track:
    • Check out
    • fee / fine
    • request
  • Do we need the original and changed due date in seperate columns? might be alright to have the changed due date in the description
  • Do we need the 'not your home circ desk' override to be tracked?
  • the loan details of items 'claimed returned' should be tracked as well
  • Information on overrides are important
  • Which descriptions are most important for check-in?
    • Prioritization:
      1. Resulting item status
      2. In transit destination, if in transit?
      3. Whether item is overdue
      4. Whether backdated and to when
      5. If claimed returned, if found by library or found by patron
      6. anything from the loan itself?
      7. Proxy yes/no (Thin thread not having it)
  • Is the anonymization process important (Germans will get back to the RA SIG)

Query search on Users and Requests

  • How important are the two issues?
  • Fielded vs boolean Search?
    • fielded Search is preferred (easier to train)
  • consistency throughout the circ apps would be good
