The data extract for the PALS Vanguard Libraries has completed. All libraries can resume normal activity.
Thanks again for your cooperation and patience. PALS staff will be working with the Ex Libris staff to learn from the various issues we had during this set of extracts in order to minimize the impact on all libraries during future extractions of data.
PALS received a vanguard library extract update from Dolph, our Ex Libris Project Manager, yesterday afternoon. Ex Libris has identified data extract issues that are important enough to address and needs to partially redo the data extracts for each vanguard library. It was agreed that the issues in question are too significant to let go unaddressed to make a meaningful data extract for testing.
Therefore, to be the least intrusive on your work and keep the project on schedule, they will redo the Inventory data extract for MSU beginning at 5 PM tonight. They will redo the Inventory data for the other three libraries (CSS, MCT, and MHS) starting at 5 PM on Thursday night.
