Happy New Year, all!

We've been under the impression that Webbridge won't work with Encore
(without extensive tweaking), but recently learned that Pathfinder Pro is
supposed to work with Encore.

Is anyone actively using Pathfinder Pro in their webpac and/or with Encore
to achieve the same or similar results as webbridge? (The iii documentation
on both isn't the most illuminating, so if anyone has any additional
information that would help differentiate the two or make a case for one
over the other, that would be most helpful!)

Thanks!

I can't say exactly what Innovative's plans for these link resolvers are -- but I can say that a group of WebBridge / WebBridge LR / Pathfinder users met as a Birds of Feather group at IUG last week to talk about documentation for these products. There is a very old customer- contributed wiki on one part of CSDirect for WebBridge and updated content elsewhere for LR / Pathfinder. Innovative is going to look at how we might collaborate with them going forward to bring the origins / targets / data tests etc up to date.

There is an Innovative-hosted listserv for WebBridge users (similar to the load profilers / Sierra / ERM lists) that I will be posting information to as we move forward but happy to share it here as well.

Does III even offer these anymore? Neither were included in the new bundles we were presented (Core or Success), and the documentation Michael Carney references talks about Millennium, not Sierra. Experience (WebPAC, AirPAC, eCommerce, etc.) suggests that these are yet more products rolled out and not really improved.

It does work. We use it. I'd be interested to know if anyone knows of any future plans for it.

Does Webbridge work with Sierra? What is the future of Webbridge?

Hi Jessica,





My understanding is that Webbridge LR and Pathfinder Pro are similar, but Webbridge LR is also a link resolver. With Pathfinder Pro, you have to have your own link resolver. I could be off-base with this understanding--but when purchased Pathfinder Pro
in 2009 it was installed as "Webbridge" but without the link resolver part.





We have Pathfinder Pro implemented in our web catalog: http://wsuol2.wright.edu:80/record=b2309712~S7";">http://wsuol2.wright.edu:80/record=b3841319~S7";">http://wsuol2.wright.edu:80/record=b3841319~S7.
Click on the "Other Resources" link in the tan box on the right.

Hi,

We have the original WebBridge. At some point III split that into two products, WB LR (the link resolver part of WB, ie from external resources to your subscribed stuff, e.g. you find a citation in a database and the link resolver takes you to the article via your library's subscriptions), and Pathfinder Pro (from your catalogue out to your subscribed stuff, e.g. from a journal bib record out to your library's subscription to that journal online).

We have WebBridge (which I guess is equivalent to Pathfinder Pro) working on our Encore (http://search.wellcomelibrary.org/). On a bib record look for 'Other Sources', then 'Other resources'). There was no tweaking needed. But I don't think you can buy this as a product now - you'd have to buy Pathfinder Pro.

Hope that clarifies the similarities/differerences a bit,

Natalie

Can you point out some items in your Encore with WebBridge links that are particularly useful? I see your link for photography, what other links have you customized?

I think it is mainly the photography link that's most useful to us. It's the method we use for users to order photography of our items - we use WebBridge to push people to the order form with the correct item information.

When I click on the "Read this Discussion" link in the message below, I am directed to the blank forum form, where I would enter a post. This happens even when I'm logged in to the IUG site. I think Linda Divan reported something similar.
