Abstract

We propose to present a model of building public websites from specialized data in Voyager. The website of Faculty Research Publications at Wichita State University will be featured.

This presentation will first explore the need of publicly presenting SQL query results from Voyager database, and these needs can include showcasing featured collections such as leisure reading, World War II Newsmap posters, featured authors and new book lists. In presenting our featuring website, we will discuss how we select faculty publications data from the oracle database and store it in Microsoft Access, and how we create the website using ASP, JavaScript, XHTML and CSS for web browsing and search. It will also show some features like connecting each record in this website to OPAC correspondingly, adding RSS feeds, Syndetic and other cover images. Some code will be disposed and future possibilities will also be discussed.
