Can we fix it? Yes, we can! Fixing user record notes in Alma
Mon 14 Sep, 2020, 11:15–11:45, Zoom - 1
Conference or Developers' Day
Developers' Day (30 min session)
Session Abstract
Alma notes in user records are free-form text. Did you migrate from another system and save all the user notes from your migration and now you want to clean these up? Do your staff and student workers always use the same format and vocabulary for user notes and always spell everything correctly? Do user notes live in your user records forever? It is difficult to remove or modify user notes in bulk once they exist in a user record, as these cannot be updated with regular Alma jobs. The presenter will explain the characteristics of notes in Alma user records, working with Alma APIs on user notes, the XML/JSON format of user notes, will cover a few different cleanup projects undertaken using Alma Analytics and Python, and will demonstrate tools for making your own Alma user note fixes.
