LIBRARY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM MIGRATION
May 2000 Activities Report
Scott Bennett

INTRODUCTION

This is the second of thirty monthly reports on the status of the Yale University Library’s migration to a new Library Management System (LMS). A version of this will be posted to YULIB. Links within the YULIB posting will direct readers to the full report on the LMS Migration Website.

These reports are intended provide a convenient summary account of LMS migration activities and the thinking that informs them. The reports and the numerous documents that will be available at the Web site are meant to help support the library-wide learning that is essential to a successful migration effort.

Comments about this material and the library’s migration activities are most welcome. Such comments can made publicly on the YULIB listserv or addressed individually to Audrey Novak, the LMS Migration Project Manager, by using the reply function at the Web site or by sending a message to Audrey at audrey.novak@yale.edu

SUMMARY OF OBRIS2 ACTIVITIES DURING MAY 2000

JUNE FORECAST

Much of the effort in June will be to support the Work Groups in whatever way they may need. The Orbis2 Migration Management Group will start deliberating on a second set of Work Groups that will be charged with developing test scripts for the multi-day demos planned for the fall. The Migration Management Group will also deliberate further on the handling of "vision" issues, such as linking.
