CARLI Board Feedback on Re-envisioning Reports

  • Summary of CARLI Chairs meeting on 1/12/21: All existing committees will continue.
  • New Discovery Layercommittee/task force – There will be a call for volunteers for this group included in the call for committee members this year.
  • Greer informed the group at Chairs meeting that CCC’s work also involves discovery. There needs to be coordination/communication with the new Discovery Group and CCC to avoid duplication of work.
  • Unless the committees requested their charges be changed, there is no reason to send a final report on the Re-envisioning project to the Board in March. The December re-envisioning report will suffice.

Alma/Primo Repository Integration Project

Documentation Gap Analysis:

  • What do we have now?
    • Ex Libris documentation is not system specific.
    • CARLI/Jessica Gibson documentation of CONTENTdm is system specific.
  • What do we want?
    • User stories/use cases that involve normalization rules, discovery import profiles (DIP), and how it comes together.
    • Normalization rules – These could be guided by our own work.
  • How do we get there?

Division of Work into 2 Parts:

  • Discovery import profiles for external repositories
    • CARLI/Jessica Gibson CONTENTdm documentation
    • Sharing of other external repository profiles (Islandora, LibGuides, other IRs) created with rest of CARLI institutions
  • Normalization rules
    • User stories/use cases
    • Re-harvesting of data after normalization rules created
    • Rules depends on what is set up by import profile – rules are reusable for each profile
    • Sharing of normalization rules created with rest of CARLI institutions
    • To change display in Primo VE – example: breaking up subject strings in CONTENTdm
    • Where to change settings for displays, normalization types to fit Primo VE values
    • Instances where it may require data remediation, out of box mappings or create normalization rules or a combination, MODS vs. Dublin Core schema

Ex Libris User Tech Blog Network:

  • Similar to forum, such as containing short messages that link out to github
  • Possible place where we can share our work
