SWAN Libraries,

The SWAN consortium will welcome Green Hills Public Library District on January 29th! A small team of SWAN staff have been working on the migration over the last five months with Green Hills staff and we're in the final stretch before go-live. Here's a quick update on the migration and what to expect this month! We'll update this post to include more detailed information as we get closer to go-live, along with a full go-live schedule. 

  • The Profiling Stage of the migration concluded when Green Hills (GHS) profiles were added to the SWAN production servers on Oct 31, 2018
  • The Test Data Load concluded on Nov 29, 2018
  • Data Testing will conclude Jan 10, 2019
  • The Bib and Item Data Extract and Load will begin Jan 21, 2019
  • Patron, Circulation, and Holds Data will be extracted and loaded on Jan 28, 2019
  • Green Hills Public Library District (GHS) will go live Jan 29, 2019!

Our goal for current SWAN libraries during the Green Hills go-live is to ensure minimal impact. To achieve this, we will be batch-loading the GHS bib and item data over several days to avoid server downtime. We'll share more information after the Azure server migration this weekend!
