    How do I rollver seasons for Course Reserves?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    On our test instance of Aleph 20 I need to roll over the semester from spring to summer in Course Reserves and I would like confirmation of the proper steps to do so.

    In Version 18 we would run p_course_03 via the web interface and enable the option to take the items off reserves.
    I would update the tab_base.eng file and in the line for ABC30_P base change it from the spring to summer.
    Then Re-index the ABC30 database using manage-01.

    In version 20 is the method I use now:
    Run Course-05 (on ABC50 or ABC30 library?)
    Run Course-03 (on ABC50 or ABC30 library?)
    Edit the new U_ABC30_C in the tab_base.eng file to reflect the new season.
    Re-index the ABC30 database using p_manage_01.

    The steps which you describe are correct. You would run p_course_05 and p_course_03 from the abc50 Services.

    {The Course Reading jobs are in the Circulation menu only. When the program sees abc50 as the ADM library, it reads the CRS relation in the library_relation table to get the Course Reserves library (abc30) for that ADM.}
