The patron feed at this time gathers information from the I-Card data feed and the CITES AD servers. Information is combined to supply the information to our internal database. This database is used for validation of certain services, such as ORR, 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.
Maintaining the Patron Feed us a medium priority for Library IT. Changes, bug fixes, or other issues are addressed during normal Library IT business hours (M-F, 8:30-5:00).
If you believe there is an issue with the patron feed please log a ticket with the IT Help Desk. Please describe the problem and include examples if possible.
The Patron data feed is routinely run by Help Desk staff.
Documentation on running load can be found at G:\Systems\feeds\PatronLoad.doc.
Permission to run the various scripts, appropriate access to the internal database, and access to the CARLI file server system.
The primary Service Manager is Jon Gorman in the IT Infrastructure and Software Development unit.
