Presenters: Cathy Sicard and Jaime Barrilleaux, LOUIS
In January 2015, a LALINC task force was created to evaluate options to improve the technology infrastructure used to support Symphony customers under LOUIS. The Symphony Infrastructure Migration Task Force met weekly to consider 1) migrating Symphony to newer servers running Linux with Oracle and Unicode, and also 2) migrating from a locally hosted environment to SirsiDynix’s SaaS hosting service. The task force recommended that the LOUIS consortium migrate to the SirsiDynix Software as a Service (SaaS) comprehensive hosting service running Linux with Oracle and Unicode. The migration process began in June, and so far 5 sites are live on SaaS. LOUIS will update you on how things are progressing so far, and enlighten sites on what to expect during and after your migration process.
Alongside the Symphony migration, LOUIS will be working with EBSCO and member libraries to migrate from EBSCO’s A-to-Z to Full Text Finder, a new suite of state-of-the-art library holdings and link management tool. Full Text Finder features include a comprehensive knowledge base, a publication search service, and a fully-functional link resolver. LOUIS will discuss more about this upcoming project.
