We’re thrilled to share that we are continuing to make strong headway developing the new Calisphere harvesting system! We are aiming to fully deploy and transition to the updated system by the end of the 2023 calendar year. As a next step in development, we will be testing the new infrastructure to verify that the full pipeline–from harvesting to building the Calisphere index–is performing as expected.

If your organization has previously contributed digital collections to Calisphere, we will be in touch in the coming weeks regarding test re-harvests of your collections. We will share the results with you, for previewing on our Calisphere-test site. The collections will not be published in the public/live Calisphere site until we transition completely over to our new system, by the end of 2023. Please note that no QA work is required on your part. 

Testing the full harvesting process is a critical part of developing this new infrastructure. This will also ensure that Calisphere has the most current version of your published collections. Additional details about our deployment and transition strategy are available on our “Calisphere Harvesting System Update” page in our Contributor Help Center.

Join us on April 26 at 11:00 am to learn more about test re-harvesting of your collections to the Calisphere-test site, as well as additional timeline details through the end of 2023.

Please see the meeting details to register for the Zoom link, and feel free to pass along this information.
