DevConnect 2023: Automated Checking of Items in a Talis Reading List

Discover how Michael Whitton from the University of Southampton automated checking of items linked in Talis Aspire to WMS.

Cet évènement est sur demande.

Learn how Michael developed automated checking in Python of items linked in Talis Aspire to WMS via an OCLC number. Saving time and hassle, this process checks first to see if there are print or online holdings, and then if there is access to a more recent edition of a book than the one cited in the reading list.
