Project Description and Purpose:
The Bibliographic Data Preparation Team will be responsible for reviewing and modifying data in bibliographic records to ensure a smooth transition of data from Sierra to Alma.
The Bibliographic Data Preparation Team will review, modify, and remove (where possible) inconsistent Sierra records and codes. This will reduce possible complications during data migration to Alma by reducing the amount of data migrated, as well as removing problem records that are not needed or desirable. It may also simplify data mapping for the implementation team.
