Library IT staff can run the feed by connecting to batch.library.illinois.edu.
The patron feed at this time gathers information from the I-Card data feed and Technology Services's AD servers. Information is combined to supply the information to our internal database. This database is used for validation of certain services, such as the Mailing Slip program and Illiad. There is also a feed produced that is submitted to CARLI to populate Voyager.
Patron feeds are processed several times a week, typically Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
Problems with the Voyager patron data feed are dealt with during normal business hours by the Help Desk and IMS (M-F, 8:30-5:00).
If the Voyager patron data feed is down, please log a ticket with the IT Help Desk or call the Help Desk at 244-4688. Incoming tickets and calls are reviewed and prioritized as they arrive between 8:30-5:00, Monday-Friday.
The Patron data feed is routinely run by Help Desk staff.
Permission to run the various scripts, appropriate access to the internal database, and access to the CARLI file server system.
