Migration Update: October 6, 2017


This week's update has something for everybody, with several How to Prepare tasks this week. All staff are encouraged to watch the newest Two-Minute Tutorials and familiarize themselves with the fundamentals of item testing. We also have cleanup tasks for Circulation and Technical Services, and a couple of quick tasks for IT. To help facilitate this week's data testing, as well as future testing and training, CCS has developed code sheets for each library. These code sheets represent the tables that run Polaris, and a big part of testing will be reviewing each tab for accuracy and ensuring the database behaves as expected. This week, we're easing into using the sheets with an introduction to item testing. A couple of quick notes:

  • Confirmation emails for CCS-led training are being sent in batches, not immediately after registering.

  • Migration advisory groups will be meeting over the next two months. Watch for meeting dates and information.

  • PowerPAC was down briefly on Tuesday, October 3 due to some configuration work.
