Dear eBooks Customer,

We hope that you are enjoying the preview of eBooks on EBSCOhost, and recognize that there is a lot of new information to absorb.  To ensure a smooth transition from NetLibrary to eBooks on EBSCOhost, we plan to send you a weekly update every Friday, designed to tell you the most important things you need to know before the final transition from NetLibrary to EBSCOhost takes place on or near July 1.

This week’s tip is about your eBooks statistics on NetLibrary.  Note that your NetLibrary statistics will not be carried over to eBooks on EBSCOhost, which means that you will need to download them before the transition is completed.

EBSCOhost offers a sophisticated array of statistics gathering formats, allowing administrators to pick and choose fields, timeframes and delivery methods using EBSCOadmin.

Have a question?  Check out the NetLibrary Support Center on EBSCO’s Support Site, or drop us a line with your question using the EBSCO Online Support Form.

Sincerely,

Marcie Brown, Technical Communications manager
EBSCO Publishing

v20 DEV Upgrade – BRO, CLI, ESC, FUL, INS, MVC, NIA, NOR

Hello everyone
TO: The following campuses with Aleph regions housed on:
• Delaware: BRO, CLI, ESC, FUL, INS, MVC, NIA, NOR
• This message is also being sent directly to the Aleph campus contacts at these sites.

RE: v.20 upgrade of campus DEV regions for
• Delaware: BRO, CLI, ESC, FUL, INS, MVC, NIA, NOR

Your Aleph v.18 DEV region will be taken down May 16 prior to 5:00am. The v.20 upgrade activities will then begin. Please review the Upgrade Process Summary for the DEV region that is available on the Version 20 Upgrade Schedule. The schedule is available at:
http://www.sunyconnect.suny.edu/olisdocs/public/Aleph/Version_20_Upgrade_Calendar/

**********IMPORTANT**********
The v.20 updates to the Aleph tables on the DEV side will become the basis for v.20 tables updates on the PROD side. Once your v.18 DEV side is shutdown, DO NOT make changes to your v.18 PROD side Aleph tables. If you do continue to make changes on your v.18 PROD side AFTER your v.18 DEV sides is shutdown, you ****MUST**** keep track of those changes and redo them again once your v.20 PROD side becomes available.
You can continue all work done through the Aleph Staff GUI such as adding and editing bibliographic records and functions associated with circulation, course reserves, acquisitions and serials.
**********IMPORTANT**********
The v.20 DEV region will be unavailable for approximately one week. This time is needed to create the v.20 environment that will be the basis for the v.20 updates to the campus PROD region. When the v.20 DEV side becomes available for review, a message will be posted to SUNYLMS and a direct email will be sent to the campus Aleph contact. At that time the Aleph campus contact will receive a packet of information related to installing the v.20 client, using Angel for Aleph v.20 update training, the WebOPAC environment, lists of any Aleph tables that campuses might need to review, and other pertinent material. For a list of campus contacts go to the file Contacts shared servers 2011may5.xlsx located at http://www.sunyconnect.suny.edu/olisdocs/public/Aleph/
