MyCybrary (A Non-Portal MyLibrary) -- October 15, 2004 11:00 am - 11:45 am

Presentation of the approach U of Winnipeg is taking in the design of a "MyLibrary system" or services. We felt that a separate portal approach was not desirable, so we have started developing a personalized view of our standard library website. The value of re-use of resource information and integration with our ILS will be highlighted, as will the speed of development and functionality.
