Meeting Minutes for 05/01/2018

Discovery Committee Meeting
May 1st, 2018

Priorities for Next Release
Review of the status from the previous and current months.

  • Hoopla Integration
    • Work will pick back up this release (as Sierra Export APIs are done)
  • LION Implementation/Sierra APIs
    • Work complete, launch is May 14-15
  • Sierra APIs
    • Export complete
    • Patron account integration next
      • Sometimes the API does not have all the functionality we need
      • Sometimes it does not work exactly as advertised
    • Adjusting the planning to allow for inconsistencies

Other Completed Work:

  • Series Improvements
    • Discovered some old bugs as part of the series improvement
    • Existing bugs will not prevent R & D from launching, but are things that need to be fixed
  • Manual grouping messaging
  • Digital Archive Private Collections

Pika Roadmap
Next Release

  • The Horizon ROA Driver is likely to be coming up soon
    • It is similar to the Sierra APIs
  • Sacramento Discovery Partner Implementation kickoff in May, but will be in full force in June
  • Next eContent Integration will likely be RBdigital
    • Looking at RBdigital magazines, eAudiobooks and some eBooks to see if the APIs are similar
    • Another potential eContent integration could be Kanopy
    • R & D will look at the rankings to see what everyone is using

Conferences Updates:

  • Lloyd from Marmot went to the IUG (Innovative Users Group) conference
    • Marmot members who attended IUG will be sharing information about the sessions they attended as a Mini-IUG
    • The Mini-IUG will be recorded and posted on the website
    • R & D will watch for the announcement that Mini-IUG recording is available, and share the link with Discovery
