Aleph Server Migration – June 24 - 26, 2016
Aleph is migrating to a new server platform, hosted by Aleph's vendor, Ex Libris. The migration is a change in server platform only. No changes to Aleph functionality are planned as part of the move.
Aleph is a high use library system that supports the daily work of most Harvard Library staff members. It also serves as the primary source of data for Harvard Library Collections in HOLLIS+ and provides the HOLLIS Classic public access catalog. Ensuring continued high availability of this service is of critical importance in supporting the needs of the Harvard Library. The Aleph Server Migration project is expected to improve availability while reducing costs. The project is already under way, with testing being conducted by the core and consulting teams. The migration is expected to be completed by Sunday, June 26.
Due to the accelerated migration schedule, beginning May 2nd, the core Aleph Migration team will be focused primarily on the migration. As always, LTS will respond to urgent Aleph support requests. However, any non-urgent issues will be delayed until the migration is complete. Please send any questions or concerns, and continue to report all other Library Systems issues via the LTS Support Center.
