Destiny Epiphany!

I just catalogued a book about Geologists in K SCIENTIST... I wanted it with other community jobs rather than in rocks. When my volunteer searched for the book about "scientists", it did not turn up because the word "scientist" is not in the MARC record for this particular book... so I called Follett. The search that I can do could find it by call number, but my students do not have (nor do I want them to have) this capability. We came up with an even better method, once my collection is catalogued for this! It involves using Visual Search. I create a Public Resource List for the new METIS call number (K SCIENTIST) then in the Catalog Search Setup, select the action to link it to the Public List I had created! Giddy, here.
