CLIC Implementation Team Update, March 2, 2015

Did March come in like a lion or a lamb this year? The I-Team breezed into March with a discussion of ongoing support for Intota V.1 as we prepare for migration to Intota V.2.

ProQuest is moving CLIC's I-Team from implementation to support for Intota V.1: Summon, Intota Assessment, and Intota ERM. With V.1 in place, the Team will be meeting less frequently, until later this year when we begin pre-migration implementation for V.2: description, fulfillment, and acquisitions. Our expected migration date is Spring 2016.
Please see your Implementation Team representative if you have questions.

Last week, the Implementation Team met with ProQuest trainers Scott Shull and Donna Boecker to learn about Intota ERM. 

During the two-day training sessions, staff from CLIC libraries also had a chance to share enhancement requests and other concerns with the trainers. Later this week, the Implementation Team and CLIC Board will meet with ProQuest management for updates on Intota product development and enhancements.
