Aleph Upgrade to Version 20
OLIS and ITEC continue with the process of upgrading the
shared server systems to Aleph v. 20. Development regions
for 55 campuses are scheduled to be completed by the end
of May; production region upgrades for these SUNYConnect campuses should be done in August 2011. V.20 training materials and other information can be
found on the SUNYConnect Support Portal.
With the assistance of OLIS, 31 SUNY collections have
finished this process of syncing up with OCLC data; 4 more
are in process. And, an additional 19 library collections
will be processed in Phase 3 (Summer/Fall 2011).
