Jim Robertson will show how NJIT has used a variety of tools (but largely ColdFusion) to extend their libraryâ€™s OPAC to engage todayâ€™s Millennial (raised in the â€œGoozlezonâ€ Web 2.0 environment) students: (1) book covers; (2) book reviews, (3) live circulation usage history, (4) recommendation engine, (5) RSS of journals tables of contents, (6) live librarian support, (7) shortcut, durable links (PURLâ€™s) to specific items.
