Wolfcon sessions suggestions:
Reminder June 5th for WolfCon proposal submissions
|Diacritics/Special characters demos|
FOLIO stores in Unicode and tires to transform everything into UNICODE. Data should be added in that standard, otherwise it can become corrupted.
Lynne Fors : I use the Microsoft Character map. Windows key > search for Character map
Character Map -> “Advanced view” checkbox offers additional useful tools like “Group by”.
Noto Sans Font set: https://fonts.google.com/noto/specimen/Noto+Sans
Raegan Wiechert : https://tools.oratory.com/altcodes.html This is the page I use for alt sequences. Note: alt sequences only work if entered on a keypad. They will not work with the number line at the top of a keyboard.
Felix Hemme : I use this list+search every time I need a complete list of Unicode characters: https://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/search.htm
Proposal for MARC bib rec templates functionality
Presentation attached above. Presented proposal for implementing the MARC bibliographic templates.
The proposal is to create a new "QuickMarc" Settings category, which will group settings that are only for cataloging, including creating templates. Firstly - bibliographic description templates, then authority and holdings templates. Each template will be described with several fields like title and description. Ref: "UXPROD-4247 MARC Bib Templates/Apps / Settings / QuickMarc / Templates"
Persmissions for managing templates will be done as for managing orders. Ref: "UXPROD-4246 MARC Bib Templates/Permission"
Creating a new template can be done in three ways: from scratch, by duplicating an existing template, deriving from existing MARC bibliograhic description. Ref: "UXPROD-4249 MARC Bib Templates/Cataloging - Workflow"
Catalogers will be able to use all templates. For this reason, the functionality of searching through templates using multiple parameters is crucial. Ref: "UXPROD-4317 MARC Bib Templates/Apps / Settings / QuickMarc / Templates / Searching"
Umbrella Jira task:
UXPROD-3939 Bibliographic Templates Support - MARC
MOL Team will prepare mockups to visulalize the proposal and present them next week.

00:16:58 Ann-Marie Breaux: Jira/Confluence WOLFcon session came up in the PO meeting yesterday also. Will be submitting a proposal for that - writing up bugs, enhancement requests, interpreting Jiras, tips & tricks
00:17:49 Sharon Wiles-Young: Reacted to "Jira/Confluence WOLF..." with ðŸ‘
00:18:43 Jacquie Samples -- Duke: Reacted to "Jira/Confluence WOLF..." with ðŸ‘ðŸ¼
00:23:10 Lynne Fors: https://fonts.google.com/noto/specimen/Noto+Sans
00:28:18 Lynne Fors: Thanks Sara!
00:29:23 Jacquie Samples -- Duke: Thanks Sara! That Character map used to be something I used all the time, but I had forgotten the advanced search part. So very useful!!
00:30:43 Ryan Tamares - Stanford Law Library: MacOS users can use Keyboard viewer to see shortcuts for special characters. Thereâ€™s at least one or two more native Mac OS entry methods as well
00:32:27 Ann-Marie Breaux: Reacted to "MacOS users can use ..." with âœ…
00:32:51 Jacquie Samples -- Duke: I am happy to be wrong, but I hope I am not, of course. I will do a little research and get back to this group. :)
00:33:14 Ann-Marie Breaux: That would be really helpful, Jacquie - thank you!
00:34:53 Jacquie Samples -- Duke: this document is very interesting and also supports my recollection on inserting ASCII vs. Unicode: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/insert-ascii-or-unicode-latin-based-symbols-and-characters-d13f58d3-7bcb-44a7-a4d5-972ee12e50e0#bm1
00:35:12 Christie Thomas (University of Chicago, she/her): Is anyone validating character encoding before batch loading MARC records? If so, what tools are you using for that? Or if you are using LDP or metadb do you have a query for identifying character encoding issues in your FOLIO data? We had a query for doing this in our previous system.
00:35:27 Jacquie Samples -- Duke: The ASCII can sometime Look like the Unicode character, but they are not the same encoding.
00:35:56 Jacquie Samples -- Duke: I think MarcEdit can be used to validate the character set.
00:36:30 Ryan Tamares - Stanford Law Library: Reacted to "I think MarcEdit can..." with â˜‘ï¸
00:37:21 Ann-Marie Breaux: The implementers group may have some ideas or guidance on data cleanup. I know the EBSCO Implementation Coordinators spend a lot of time on it with migrating libraries
00:38:37 Jacquie Samples -- Duke: Reacted to "The implementers gro..." with ðŸ‘ðŸ¼
00:41:29 Colin V. (he/him): Replying to "Is anyone validating..."
I'm using LDLite to get at issues that come up. Not a proactive or comprehensive approach, but we are finding stuff. I'm happy to Slack the full query I'm working on, but as a teaser, I'm looking for things like...
--and m."content" like '%%' --causes title to not be exported to EDS
--and m."content" like '%Ì‚%' --can't edit record in quickMARC - seems to be in nature of contents pos?
00:42:57 Christie Thomas (University of Chicago, she/her): Replying to "Is anyone validating..."
Thanks, Colin. I would like to see your query if you would slack it to me.
00:43:05 Colin V. (he/him): Reacted to "Thanks, Colin. I wou..." with ðŸ‘
00:44:44 Christie Thomas (University of Chicago, she/her): Replying to "I think MarcEdit can..."
We did use to use it for character encoding, but now we are seeing a lot more "warnings" showing up in record validation that are not actually encoding errors and it is at a volume that is a challenge for us. Right now we are checking everything, but I was looking to see if there were more efficient means of doing this work.
00:45:13 Christie Thomas (University of Chicago, she/her): Replying to "The implementers gro..."
Thanks Ann-Marie. That is a good suggestion.
00:49:27 Ann-Marie Breaux: https://wiki.folio.org/display/FOLIJET/MOL+team
01:10:27 Ann-Marie Breaux: I love love love templates. It's been a long time, but back when I did music cataloging, they were so helpful for all the fields and codes
01:11:28 Ryan Tamares - Stanford Law Library: The proposed QuickMARC templates feature remind me of the OCLC Connexion local constant data
01:12:08 Ryan Tamares - Stanford Law Library: Replying to "The proposed QuickMA..."
I should clarify and say the private templates specifically
01:12:23 Jacquie Samples -- Duke: So, would an Action "open template" send the user to a list of most used templates? Or a list to choose from Ryan?
01:12:40 Khalilah (EBSCO): That's the plan
01:12:44 Jacquie Samples -- Duke: Reacted to "That's the plan" with ðŸ‘ðŸ¼
01:13:27 Colin V. (he/him): Do we have areas of FOLIO where we have user-specific customizations?
01:14:20 Ryan Tamares - Stanford Law Library: Reacted to "Do we have areas of ..." with âž•
01:15:03 Felix Hemme: Replying to "Do we have areas of ..."
Dashboards is the only place I am aware of
01:15:18 Ann-Marie Breaux: I don't think so, Colin. In some areas, you can decide which columns you want for list results, but they only last for your current session
01:15:27 Colin V. (he/him): Reacted to "I don't think so, Co..." with ðŸ’¯
01:17:23 Ann-Marie Breaux: I guarantee you will get many, many opinions on mockups!
01:20:36 Colin V. (he/him): that's what I was thinking about in-app user-specific customizations - this could be a first!
01:22:54 Ann-Marie Breaux: Really interesting - thank you!
01:23:01 scolglaz: Thank you!
01:23:01 Colin V. (he/him): Thank you MOL!
