979’s in ITEM RECORDS — since when? June 28, 2006

Posted by Mia in Collections, Create Lists.

As promised.  I have hunted around for background on when order information started being systematically imported into the item records for monographs.

We seemed to have been doing some testing going into the early months of 1998, but were in full swing by June of that year.

A solid benchmark to use would be as of June 1, 1998, i.e., corresponding with the start of FY 1998-99.

That’s 7 years worth of data, and counting.
