The Library of Congress Portals Applications Issues Group (LCPAIG) is pleased to announce publication of its "List of Portal Application Functionalities for the Library of Congress". The document is available at: www.loc.gov/catdir/lcpaig/portalfunctionalitieslist4publiccomment1st7-03.pdf
The List, which is offered for public comment, represents the results of nearly one year of market analysis to study portal functionality of particular products in order to identify existing features of such products. The functionalities are organized under broad headings: General Requirements, Client Requirements, Searching and Search Results, Knowledge Database, Patron Authentication, and Portal Administration and Vendor Support. All the functionalities designated as "M" for "mandatory" were present in one or more of the three applications (ZPORTAL*, MetaLib/SFX, ENCompass/LinkFinderPlus) that were tested during market analysis. In addition, for a high performing portal application, the LCPAIG identified several highly desirable functionalities not yet present in some or all of the products tested. These functionalities, designated as "D" (for "desirable"), are offered to vendors for consideration as they enhance their products.
The LCPAIG recognizes that the List may not include applications that other kinds of libraries might specify as either required or desirable. For example, academic libraries are likely to want portal products that can interface with courseware. In short, the list produced by the LCPAIG is that for a general research library of a large and complex nature, such as a national library. Additions or subtractions may be appropriate according to the needs of other kinds of libraries. The LCPAIG welcomes feedback on its statement of proposed mandatory and desirable functionalities from individuals, libraries, professional organizations, and vendors. Positive criticism will be gratefully received. Please send your comments via e-mail to: <firstname.lastname@example.org> In September, the LCPAIG will review the List to revise it, taking into account comments received as a result of this announcement. The study that produced the List resulted from Work Item 2.1 within the Action Plan that grew out of the Library of Congress Cataloging Directorate's Bicentennial Conference on Bibliographic Control for the New Millennium.
