LIBRARY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM MIGRATION
June 2000 Activities Report
Scott Bennett


INTRODUCTION

This is the third of thirty monthly reports on the status of the Yale University Library's migration to a new Library Management System (LMS). These reports are intended to 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 be made publicly on the YULIB listserv or addressed individually to Audrey Novak, the LMS Migration Project Manager, by sending a message to Audrey at audrey.novak@yale.edu

SUMMARY OF OBRIS2 ACTIVITIES DURING JUNE 2000

Thanks particularly to the effort of the many library staff serving on work groups, June was a remarkably productive month for the Orbis2 migration effort.

Hearty congratulations to both Work Group leaders and group members for meeting the demanding deadline for these draft criteria. Audrey Novak will be working with the Work Group chairs to identify and recruit members for the new groups, which we hope can begin their deliberations in July. JULY FORECAST
