Alma Title Count Reduction Project: Cleaning up ASP Theatre in Video E-Collections

Back to the CARLI I-Share Alma Title Count Reduction Project Home Page


During the title count reduction project, CARLI staff have discovered an Ex Libris migration data error.  Specifically, many I-Share libraries had the Alexander Street Press e-collection Theatre in Video, Supplement activated in their IZ during migration when they should have had Theatre in Video, Volume 1 - North America activated in their IZ instead. Users at these libraries do not have access to the Theatre in Video, Supplement e-collection, so it should be deleted so that it is not displaying as as resource in Primo VE.

The 35 libraries* affected by this error should:

1. Activate in your IZ the correct e-collection from the CZ: Theatre in Video, Volume 1 - North America with CZ Electronic Collection ID: 61391926370005816, MMS ID: 9913536078200041.

2. Delete Theatre in Video, Supplement e-collection from your IZ. 

CARLI has contracted with the Illinois Heartland Library System’s Catalog Maintenance Center to engage a team of their professional catalogers to work on Alma record deduplication and cleanup under the supervision of CARLI Office staff.

Work Plan for Cleaning up ASP Theatre in Video E-Collections

Step 1: CARLI staff will write reports for each institution to show if these e-collections need to be adjusted in their IZs.

Step 2: CARLI will distribute reports for each institution in Box and notify I-Share Liaisons and Directors on December 14, 2021.

Step 3: I-Share institutions with these e-collections to be deleted/activated will indicate to CARLI by 5pm on December 21, 2021 if they will adjust these e-collections in their IZs themselves or if CARLI will do this work.

Step 4: I-Share institutions that elect to adjust the e-collections themselves must complete this work by January 31, 2022.

Step 5: CARLI staff will adjust the remaining e-collections from IZs and notify each institution's I-Share Liaison when the work is completed in their IZ.

Current Status

Completed.  3,045 incorrect portfolios deleted; 14,245 correct portfolios activated.
