Save Time with Scheduler: Automating Record Loads, Discovery Service Exports, and Create List Queries in Sierra and Millennium
Joel Tonyan UCCS

Is your library hand-loading patron and bibliographic records? Are you manually exporting records from Sierra or Millennium and uploading them to an FTP server to keep your discovery service up to date? Are you manually running Create List queries on a regular basis that you wish you could automate? Attend this session and learn how to use Scheduler, an add-on for Sierra and Millennium, to automate routine tasks such as records loads, records exports, and Create List queries. The presenter will explain how to configure Scheduler to automate routine tasks to save time and increase productivity.


Preservation Stewardship: collaboration, challenges, solutions
Laura Wright CU-Boulder

In October 2016 CU-Boulder signed the first Preservation Steward agreement with the U.S. Government Publishing Office. We committed to keep and preserve our Congressional Hearings, the U.S. Serial Set, and the Congressional Record. Along with this commitment came some technical challenges, including accurately identifying materials at the item level and consistently documenting both the commitment to preserve and, eventually, the condition of the pieces. This presentation will give some background on the program and the collections involved, outline the issues encountered with exporting item-level data from bibliographic records (Sierra) with multiple item records and/or x-links, and describe the decisions made and solutions devised.
