Abstract

The Central Medical Library (CMK) at the Medical Faculty, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia created its website in 1997 and since then has been actively involved in its maintenance and improvement. Its digital library is under rapid development, with permanently growing number of full text journals and databases. The analysis of our website usage revealed an increasing interest among the Slovene biomedical community especially for full text resources. By using data mining methods we discovered user navigation patterns, some of which were quite unexpected. Patrons have often complained to librarians about information overload and difficulty to follow all websites enhancements. Such a situation demanded for a dynamic restructuring of the CMK website. Often such problems are solved with customisable and personalised library portals because they address the modern library role directly by being customer focused, responding to customer needs, and empowering users to create personal information systems that are responsive to their individual needs. That is why we started to develop a personalised medical library portal. As we have limited financial and human resources, we decided to customise and extend an existing library portal software solution
