Four issues were brought to our attention once the Informit feeds went live that are currently being worked on:
1. EduTV dates: Broadcast date was indexed instead of Publication Date. This issue will be resolved as part of the October CDI content release.
2. EduTV and TVNews "Is Part of": The Is Part of indicator will be resolved as part of the October CDI content release.
3. Record count confirmation: We have reached out to Informit to confirm we've received all records to confirm if there is a gap.
Informit has let us know they are aware of these recort count discrepancies, and they are working to send us update files for the feeds that have low record counts.
4. Duplicate records: There have been duplicate records in the results, so we have reached out to Informit to inquire about the duplication source.
Informit is aware of the duplicates in a few feeds, and will work to consolidate these so they merge.
