Comment on Responding to your feedback by Shirley Cousins

Thanks for this comment - I will note it to add to the survey feedback. We're pleased to know you like the service as it is, that is good news for us. But of course we also get a lot of requests for change from people who do want new facilities etc. So the development of the service is always a balancing act between conflicting requirements. We try to ensure that change doesn't come at the expense of too much complexity and for significant changes we trial developments with Copac users to make sure we're going in the right direction. But given the range of people using the service, and their range of interests, we know we'll always have work to do balancing stability and change.

When I completed the survey I should have thought of adding another DO NOT CHANGE IT. So many online facilities are ruined because someone feels it needs changing. If it works...



Comment on New Copac database and revised interface by Dr Robert V McNamee

Dear COPAC, Sincerely value your resource and use it almost daily. However, the removal of the sort function has made COPAC unusable for our purposes, which most often involves looking for very early printings of materials held in UK libraries. Having to click through 25 pages to get to an early entry is deeply annoying and has returned me to using Australian National Library, Library of Congress etc. — though that doesn't give me UK holdings. Best regards, RVM

The option of personalising the record content is an interesting idea and not something we've been asked for before. We are planning further interface testing development later in the year and as part of that we'll be reviewing development requests, so we'll include your suggestion in that 'wish list'.

Thanks for alerting us to this. I thought we'd sorted out this bug but the correction obviously never made it into the live interface. It's now been resolved.

There's some bugs with the pre-generated title searches. http://copac.ac.uk/search?author=pauly&keyword=fish&rn=26 ("On the sex of fish and the gender of scientists : collected essays in fisheries science") allows me to click the title to run a search on the title field alone. However, as it contains a colon, the search becomes "On the sex of fish and the gender of scientistscollected essays in fisheries science" - and "scientistscollected" of course returns no results. Would it be possible for colons/semicolons/etc (possibly also hyphens?) to be interpreted as an additional space character by the software rather than entirely stripped out?

I'm another person very disappointed by losing the sort option, which I use all the time. I will still be using COPAC, but it will slow down the effectiveness of my using it, especially if I've got a long list of ersults to look through.
