Rochester College Receives DALNET Grant

Stone-Campbell Churches of Michigan

Rochester College received an $8,000 DALNET Grant for their “Stone-Campbell Churches of Michigan Collection” project.  The grant will allow Rochester College to organize archival materials in this collection and digitize a representative portion to be made accessible online.  Rochester College library employees recently met with an archivist and will be working on the project this summer.

Upgrade Update for Horizon System

The HIP Upgrade Task Force has submitted its recommendation document for shared OPAC settings to the DALNET office.  The document will be sent to Project Managers for approval.  In May, HIP Profile Forms will be sent to Project Managers for each institution to complete for the upgrade.  New HIP OPACs will be constructed in May and members can begin testing them at a meeting to be held on June 6.  The Fourth of July Weekend is the target date for the Production upgrade of Horizon and HIP.

Authority Project Update

Loading of bibliographic records began on Friday, April 29.  While loading continues there is a moratorium on adding new bibliographic records in batch import.  When the loads are complete the ban on cataloging will be lifted.
