Hello all - I'm trying to build a laundry list of issues I'll have to deal with in our upcoming migration to Sierra. We haven't yet placed our order, so I don't have a migration team to address these questions to, but I thought I'd start brainstorming about wrinkles that may call for changes when we implement the new system. If you've been through the process, and have comments on gotchas to add to the list, I'd be glad to have your comments. At the same time, we are implementing Worldcat Discovery, so I have questions about whether we will move away from the WebBridge link resolver and use OCLC's instead, etc.

Thanks,
Cindy

Hi, Cindy,

I'm interested in what kind of list you put together. We are beginning to look at migrating and it would be good to know what other's experience was in the prep stage.
