Preserve Local and Institution-Specific Data during Migration to a Network Cataloging Environment
Augusta University Libraries are in the process of migrating from Ex Libris' Voyager traditional integrated library system (ILS) into Ex Libris' next-generation library management solution Alma. As part of the migration process, our cataloging records, currently created and maintained by our libraries, will be migrated into a collaborative network zone that comprises 29 institutions in the University System of Georgia consortium, to allow for collaborative cataloging among multiple libraries. While most of the data can be transferred by setting up proper mapping, migration of local field information poses a challenge. As an institution comprised of a health sciences library and an academic library, we face a unique challenge in preserving our medical subject headings (MeSH). Based on the migration schedule, some of our bibliographic records with MeSH headings could be replaced by bibliographic records without MeSH headings unless we identify and migrate those records into our institutional zone which will be managed by our libraries. In addition, bibliographic records with local fields such as MARC fields 59X, 69X, and 9XX need to be moved into our institutional zone as well. The authors discuss strategies and tips to prevent data loss during the migration. Beyond this migration, it becomes equally important to think carefully about how to best organize those local fields in a future-proof way in the context of RDA, BIBFRAME and linked-data environment. The authors explore how Alma can help organize local information in bibliographic, holding, and item level records and how local information can be discovered.

Scoping Your eJournal List: Creating a Tailored List of Biomedical Journals in a Large University Setting
With the large amount of electronic resources available to libraries and their users today, libraries must find ways to present that information to users in manageable ways. Academic medical libraries have the additional challenge of presenting properly scoped biomedical resources to clinicians, medical students, graduate students, and faculty from both local resources and those available through the parent academic institution and library. Come learn how the Penn State University College of Medicine Harrell Health Sciences Library embarked on a project to create a scoped eJournal list to provide clean access to biomedical resources for library users. We will discuss how we formed an authoritative list of journals, the process used to create the scoped list, and lessons learned along the way.

This poster is co-authored by Marie Cirelli, Collection Access and Support Services Librarian, Penn State College of Medicine Harrell Health Sciences Library, who was unable to attend the conference.
