Last week, each library's data testing coordinator and library lead received an email with instructions on how to report data testing progress to CCS, along with our first official data testing assignment on patron records! This week, we shared another document that will help libraries begin reviewing item records. Copies of both documents are attached below. If you're curious about what fields to pay close attention to at as you review records in Polaris, please take a look! These worksheets will not be turned in to CCS but may be used internally at each library. Talk to your library lead for more information on how data testing will work at your library. For a more in-depth look at data testing, please review our introduction to data testing.
Library staff may also want to review the data mapping process. Understanding how data was migrated from Symphony to Polaris will go a long way towards helping to identify and correct errors. We also suggest that your familiarize yourself with your library's unique code sheet. This will help you understand what values you should expect to see when reviewing records in Polaris.
