SMU Internet Access - Addendum CAROLYN KACENA 08 Feb 1991 16:38 UTC
With the usual disclaimers to multiple list subscribers... Last Friday I issued the notices concerning Internet access to SMU's PONI online catalog system. The following updates should be noted: 1. SMU allows view only access to the technical services side of the NOTIS system, for those who may utilize bibliography software requiring the MARC formatted record. You should see but be unable to edit or change the Bibliographic File, Authority File, and Copy Holdings Record. This may only be of interest to other NOTIS sites, but might be a useful adjunct to the opac portion. HOWEVER, if you find that our security has glitched and you see highlighted elements which you can (or think you can) edit, please advise me as soon as possible! We think its a clean security screen, but... 2. Some people have gotten in successfully, signed off of our CICS region successfully, but not gotten back home from the SMU mainframe. The following addendum reminds us all that our campus system administrators can help in this regard. If you have additional questions, please direct them to Michael Stephens, SMU TECH1 for NOTIS 121C Bradfield Computer Center Southern Methodist University Dallas, TX 75275 BITNET: VB7R0007@SMUVM1 VOICE: (214) 692-3453 or use the HELP Desk facility noted in the original mailing. **** ADDENDUM When SMU announced the availability of PONI last week a slight discrepancy was inadvertently included. The two clear keystrokes used when exiting PONI are to ensure that the user is completely out of the PONI application. A single clear from the introductory screen is also sufficient. The CSSF LOGOFF will exit CICS and return the user to the SMU VTAM screen or its help menu, but will not terminate the Telenet session from your site to SMU. The termination is done at your local site and depends on your local conventions. You should contact your system administrator for instructions. **** Please keep your questions and comments coming. I have appreciated the questions for clarification and hope that this mailing assists each of you in successfully utilizing the PONI system.
