RA/UM Working Group
Meetings have become more of a lab session, working through specific problems
Angela has been attending RA SIG meetings to open the lines of communication, now once a month
Contact Angela if you would like to join these meetings; second Wednesdays at 1pm Eastern (but for Feb, actually Tuesday the 8th at 2pm Eastern)
Meetings are 1st Tuesday of the month, 12-1pm ET via zoom using the usual FOLIO password. Our lab sessions are open to everyone. Please bring your questions, examples, and comments about reporting and metadata.
We have began porting over LDP derived tables to Metadb. We have a sign up sheet. If you'd like to participate, please add your name. If you aren't in the our mm reports Slack channel, let Jennifer know so that you can be added.
Current pull requests for metadb derived tables:
holdings statistical codes
instance statistical codes
instance alternative titles
instance electronic access
For instance formats, bad data from FOLIO was encountered. Instead of a uuid for the format ids, the data was "volume nc rdacarrier". It seems this isn't the first time for such data - beware.
Iris documentation is in progress, due December 15
The Reporting SIG has representation on the Documentation Working Group, which is building end-user documentation for https://docs.folio.org/docs/ (mostly linking to existing documentation over on GitHub)
