DevConnect 2021: Migrating open orders with WMS APIs
This presentation will describe Concordia University Library's project to migrate orders using the Acquisitions and Vendor Information Center APIs.
Concordia University Library (CDN) finished migrating its library catalog and circulation system from Innovative's Sierra ILS to WorldShare in 2020. Automatic migration of acquisitions data was not part of the standard migration procedure, but we decided to migrate some acquisitions data -- open monograph and serial orders -- via WMS APIs, rather than manually transferring all that information. The presentation will describe the project and the challenges we overcame using the Acquisitions and Vendor Information Center APIs (as well as a bit of screen-scraping) to migrate our orders first to Concordia's implementation sandbox environment and then to production.
