Innovation Lab's 1st Workshop: LibraryBox!

TP-Link 3G/4G Wireless Router

Today was the Innovation Lab's first workshop! We built an Online File Distribution System using LibraryBox. According to the project's website, LibraryBox v2.0 is a combination of a router, USB drive, and open source software that, when combined, gives you a small, low powered webserver. This webserver will distribute files (e.g., .STL files for 3D printing, open access e-books/articles, project blueprints, videos, apps, and more) that are stored on a 32 Gb USB drive, which is connected to the TP-Link 3G/4G wireless router.



Building LibraryBox
3 people, including me, worked together today to build a LibaryBox, which will store/distribute files for the Innovation Lab. We followed the well-written instructions at the LibraryBox website and it took us about an hour to have a working web server! During the workshop, we were asked why we wanted to build this instead of buying one ready-to-go out of the box and we said that this is the whole purpose of the lab. We had a few issues come up while building LibraryBox and as a group we solved them. It was a great collaborative learning experience, which is one of the main tenets of the Innovation Lab!

Using PuTTY to securely connect to the router via SSH.


The group had to enable telnet in Windows and later learn the basics of SSH in order to password protect the router.



  
Connect to LibraryBox Wi-Fi Network

To use LibraryBox, a user would connect to the "LibraryBox - Free Content!" Wi-Fi network and then launch a web browser, which will automatically redirect the user to the LibraryBox homepage on any device.


LibraryBox home page with menu option

The LibraryBox homepage embedded on the TP-Link router now includes information about the project, and links on the menu for downloading a variety of file types. You can browse the contents of the Shared folder, and download any files you'd like.  There is an integrated chat feature on the homepage and the group working on building this today plans on exploring its potential. Stay tuned!




 The Innovation Lab's LibraryBox is on the map!


We are now on the LibraryBox map!

Preview Our New Research Interface!

You are invited to preview the new statewide view of the Mango discovery research system and catalog.  This new statewide union discovery research tool will eventually replace the separate, legacy union catalogs of both the university and college system, as well as the current Search Florida Libraries interface.  To access the preview interface, go tohttp://discover.flvc.org.
This preview period will run only until Friday, February 21, during which time we ask that you email your comments and questions concerning the interface to mairn.chad@spcollege.edu. Your comments will be forwarded to the FLVC Help Desk.
Following is additional information about the new statewide view to assist with your preview:

  • The statewide union view includes university and college resources and e-resources from the Primo Central Index (PCI).

  • For this statewide implementation, the display defaults to e-resources results from the Florida Electronic Library’s Gale databases that are available to all colleges and universities.   Access to full text is available to patrons through the link resolver provided by their home institution’s library.

  • We will continue to make additional improvements to the PCI access profiles index to implement discovery tool local views for FCS libraries. Those views are anticipated for summer 2014. SUS library local views should not be affected.

  • Final selection of the mega search index product for deployment into the discovery tool is still pending.

  • Once the preview is underway, FLVC will work with the User Interfaces Standing Committee to resolve any issues that arise. Please note that these changes will not address the need for a full-scale “refresh” of Mango that was requested by the Members Council on Library Services; that activity will occur at a later date.

  • At present, UBorrow (ILL) functionality is only available for universities and is a production service. During the preview period, any UBorrow requests will be sent to production Aleph.  UBorrow will be available to colleges upon completion of the Shared ILL project.  More information about statewide UBorrow will be provided as the project nears completion.

  • An activation date for this statewide view has not yet been determined. Until a firm date is in place and communicated to all libraries, local college and university discovery tools will not be affected.

Introducing Indoor Google Maps!



Google Maps now allows users to view and navigate indoor floor plans and will provide step-by-step directions to rooms, offices, restrooms, reading/study areas, and more that are located within the St. Petersburg College Seminole Campus!

Google Maps will guide you to the campus, but zooming further into the map will now display an indoor floor plan of the building. You can also use the level switcher (outlined in red) to move from the ground floor to other available floors in the building.

Indoor Google Maps is supported on Android and iOS devices. The desktop and Web app versions only highlight the ground floor at this time, but they will soon incorporate multiple floors via the level switcher.  

Visit www.google.com/mobile/maps/ to download Google Maps and never get lost on the St. Petersburg College Seminole Campus again!


If you have questions on how to install/use Google Maps, or notice any inaccurate map information please contact Chad Mairn at mairn.chad@spcollege.edu or at (727) 394-6917.

OverDrive Updates iOS/Android App


OverDrive has released an updated version of the OverDrive Media Console (OMC) mobile app for iOS and Android (v2.6.5). Below is a summary of the release details.

OMC for iOS v2.6.5

·         Enhancements to improve the speed of the in-app browser
·         Bug fixes
·         Reauthorization of Adobe ID for ALL iOS users required by Apple

Due to a change in Apple's privacy policies, OverDrive had to make changes to the way they handle licensing of EPUB eBooks and MP3 audiobooks. As a result, the OMC for iOS v2.6.5 update will de-authorize every users’ Adobe ID and prompt them to authorize again. Audiobook users will be unaffected unless attempting to download parts from a book that was only partially downloaded prior to the v2.6.5 update.

eBooks – Adobe Authorization
After installing the update, users with authorized Adobe IDs in place will see the following message:

eBooks – Adobe Authorization


Clicking ‘Sign In’ will show the ‘Adobe Authorization’ screen. The deauthorized Adobe ID is pre-populated, so the user will only need to enter the password. The ‘Forgot password?’ link will be available.

eBooks – Adobe Authorization


Audiobooks – Downloading additional parts
Audiobook users won’t notice anything different unless they attempt to download parts of audiobooks partially downloaded to OMC before installing the v2.6.5 update. In this case, the following message is displayed:

Audiobooks – Downloading additional parts


Users will need to download the title again from their digital library website bookshelf to download the missing parts.

These updates are messaged in the App Store and on the “What’s New” screen. Additionally, there are two help articles available for users and library staff to help with these updates:


OMC for Android v2.6.5

·         Bug fixes

Note: The issues with Adobe authorization and audiobook downloads do not impact the Android release of OMC v2.6.5.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact a librarian.
