The Batch Services Team

BSW works to coordinate batch services in Aleph and in particular the batch loading of bibliographic metadata title sets for eresources and batch processing Local Holdings Records for print serials. Members are Meghan Bergin, Jennifer Eustis, Ann Kardos, Amelia Sutton, and Jaime Taylor.

The Agenda is now in Box.

UMass Batch Loading Activities

Five Colleges In Common Electronic Resources: list of resources for each of the five colleges

eResource Platform and URL Changes: Submit platform changes for epackages.

Tracking Batch Loads:

Batch loads are now tracked using Trello, the UMass Batch Loading Activities. Number of titles loaded is still recorded in CORAL. Previous tracking documents for UMass tracking spreadsheets can be found below.

MARC Collection Codes: lists all the collection codes in use for UMass Amherst

MARC Record Load: lists the latest batch imports into the system with file names and comments

Archived older copies of the above spreadsheets, documentation on how to load for certain resources, and copies of files (mrc, xml, etc.) can be found on the shared network drive called RecordLoading and Collection Management for LHRs. How to batch delete can also be found on Record Loading. Information on Aleph Services, ARC, and SQL queries can be found in the 5C AAG Folder called Aleph Services (permission required to access).

Link to MarcEdit Tasks:

There are archived tasks on the Record Load shared network drive. Current tasks can be found on GitHub.
