RE:  v.22 upgrade of campus DEV regions for


Your Aleph v.20 DEV region will be taken down on Sunday May 8 prior to 5:00am.  The v.22 upgrade activities will then begin.  Please review the Upgrade Process Summary for the DEV region that is available on the Version 22 Upgrade Schedule.  The schedule is available at: http://wiki.sln.suny.edu/x/CYlzAQ.


The v.22 updates to the Aleph tables on the DEV side will become the basis for v.22 tables updates on the PROD side.  Once your v.20 DEV side is shutdown, DO NOT make changes to your v.20 PROD side Aleph tables.  If you do continue to make changes on your v.20 PROD side AFTER your v.20 DEV sides is shutdown, you ****MUST**** keep track of those changes and redo them again once your v.22 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.


Due to maintenance work that will impact all campus DEV sides on May 10 and staff scheduling considerations, anticipate that your DEV region will be unavailable until the week of May 15. When the v.22 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.22 client, using Angel for Aleph v.22 update training, the WebOPAC environment, lists of any Aleph tables that campuses might need to review, and other pertinent material.  Information on what is new in v.22 is available at http://wiki.sln.suny.edu/x/CYlzAQ.
