VDX interlibrary loan product supplied by OCLC Talis Aspire Implementation of Bonus+, Article Reach. 3 Sierra upgrades this year. One more upgrade to Sierra 2.4 Still trying to implement Sierra SMS text messaging hosted by OpenMarket. Have been trying since November 2015 without success. Working with AUT ICT to implement integrated online fine payments with student blocks applied and removed in student registration system. Decided not to use Sierra for financial reporting. Will use Tech One and the university’s data warehouse for reporting. Because of shortcomings of Patron APIs we have been unable to implement live real time updating of patron records. Considering Innovative Knowledge Base and completion of Sierra ERM. Further development of integration with university systems using Sierra APIs. Integrating Talis Aspire with EDS.

MarcEdit. In 2016, the Library Technology and Scholarly Resources reviewed several services including ePress, Interlibrary loans, our Luna Insight Image repository. Our Talis Reading list service was used heavily and has created a number of strategies related to our resource and academic engagement strategies. We engaged in system architecture work which looked at the business and technical fit of our current systems. In 2017 we are hoping to get enough resources to replace Millennium and move our system to remote hosting. Our system architecture work has shown we have a number of systems who fail to meet business or technology needs and we will be addressing these with system replacements or roadmaps.

Custom AutoIT executables. We started to delve into working with SQL to create custom reports. We are currently changing the holdshelf model from Automatic Status to Multiple Location after a consultation with III on our current usage. We are moving to send as many notices by Email as possible. To improve the logs kept, we are moving away from using the Councils email server to an external commercial one, SMTP2GO.
