eResource Challenge Week 1 – Downloadables

Before we get to the challenge, we want to address some confusion that more than one participant experienced in trying to complete the first challenge.  Several people emailed asking where to submit their response.  The link at the bottom of the post will take you to a SurveyMonkey.  The scenario will be provided again and you should submit your response in the text box below the scenario.  The SurveyMonkey will also provide direct links to the resources you will use to answer the questions.

Now, on to the challenge!

Today we’ll tackle the first downloadables challenge.  This one will highlight what we feel is a great new feature of the Next Generation Catalog (NGC) the eiN is working on.

The Challenge:

In the NGC, search for your favorite genre then limit to the OverDrive READ format and available copies.  Pick a title and go through the checkout process.  Once the book is checked out, go through the process of returning the book, but don’t leave the NGC!

    How can different people using a shared computer both submit to Survey Monkey? (Survey Monkey seem to prevent next person from answering once one person has done that survey on that computer.) Clearing cookies did not seem to work.

      Hi Rebecca,
      Thanks for the question and for the prompt! We forgot to change the settings on the survey to allow multiple responses from the same computer. We’ve changed the setting now, so please try again. Hopefully this will fix the problem!

    This challenge was relatively easy. I’ve never downloaded a book before.

    Feel the same way Claudia.
