TRANSCRIPT

  • By Michele NewberryThe FCLA Endeca Project

  • Current OPAC environmentAleph 500 v.15.5 Heavily customized to reflect pre-implementation objectivesBased on familiarity of previous systemWithout full understanding of all the support implicationsIncludes heavy use of JavascriptSome workarounds created functional problems

    M.Newberry

  • FCLA ALEPH Architecture11 universities11 Aleph instancesBibliographic records =14 millionConfiguration files and tablesJoblists and batch queues11 OPAC configurations1 OPAC config = >700 files/tables 4 Aleph regions (DEV/TEST/PROD/REPT) X 11 OPACs X 700 files = 30,800!

    M.Newberry

  • Pending upgradeJumping 2 releases to v.18None of the v.15.5 customization will survive the upgrade processResources to sustain level of customization arent adequateFamiliarity with previous system is decliningUpgrade process will take 4 months for the 11 Aleph instances

    M.Newberry

  • Other objectivesProvide a consistent transition interface during the up upgrade processGain discovery and navigation functionality not currently availableGain a union catalog a byproduct of our previous system not yet available with the current one

    M.Newberry

  • Why ENDECA?Already proven by NCSUCan build on NCSUs work instead of starting from ground zeroProduct features:Guided navigation FacetsSpellcheckStemmingOthers yet to be fully explored

    M.Newberry

  • Endeca architectureOne instance of EndecaOne Endeca database7 million recordsOne instance of user interface with individual institution viewsEasy interface modificationRapid, iterative development

    M.Newberry

  • Building the Endeca FileExtract bib records from 11 Aleph databasesLoad 1st into a 12th Aleph bib file Load 2nd file-deduping on OCLC number merge unique and local data (e.g., call numbers/URLS/headings/notes)Repeat file3 file11 Load Digital Library metadataExtract merged bib file to load into Endeca

    M.Newberry

  • Maintaining the Endeca CatalogFull extraction, reformatting and load takes 48 hours will be done every few weeksIncremental updates of adds/significant changesCurrent holdings status retrieved from Aleph via SQL in real-time

    M.Newberry

  • Next steps OPAC Subcommittee is examiningData integrityFunctionalityAppearanceUsabilityAccessibilityCIRC/ILL Subcommittee will be looking at future SUS-wide request capabilities

    M.Newberry

  • Next steps Technical Services Committee is looking at:Aleph indexing changes for v.18 and effect on EndecaUse of material type codes for more user-friendly resultsProcesses to optimize the consistency of the bibliographic and holdings data feeding into Endeca

    M.Newberry

  • Much further down the roadLibraries will need to start looking at feasibility of sharing bibliographic records to:Reduce duplication of effortShare authority controlRedirect resources into enhancing the dataReduce level of effort to produce the Endeca database
