The beta tests of the new Marcgrab for Prism 3 are going well and it won’t be long before we start a roll-out programme for all Prism 3 customers. Marcgrab is a re-write of Marcgrabber and has been developed to make it easier for us to make amendments now and in the future. It will also enable searches for recently added items in Prism 3 and also multi-volume parent/child record processing. Crucially, it will also enable the Semantic Data Model.
We ran a webinar to introduce Marcgrab on Monday 9th May. We talked about what Marcgrab is, why it has been re-written, the prerequisites required for installation, the benefits that it will bring to your system, an overview of the process, the steps involved in the implementation and how you can request it to be installed. You can watch the video here.
