Functionality contact: Carly Bogen

Main Drivers
  • Continue functionality identified in Phase III grant proposal for Q1
  • Work with deployers on design for improvements to vocabularies and authorities (Release 2.4)
Code Contributions

The following code contributions are incorporated in this release, all from UC Berkeley:

  • Configuration changes were made that reduced data fetches, resulting in significant (up to 10- to 20-fold) speed improvements when returning list and search results, including lists of proposed terms in autocomplete fields.
  • Cataloging pages can now display a thumbnail image from media associated with a Cataloging object.
    (Currently, if a Cataloging record is associated with multiple media records that include images, only one of those images will be displayed on the Cataloging page.)
  • The Concept Authority was added.
  • The Place Authority was added.

For more details, see Proposed Contributions, below.

Schema Changes
  • In Location and Movement records, several fields were added to also support Inventory activities (Inventory Control Schema, CSPACE-4925). For those doing data import or sending requests via the Services Layer REST APIs, here's what's been added:
    • Inventory date
    • Inventory contact list (a repeatable group consisting of zero or more Inventory contacts)
    • Inventory action required
    • Inventory note
    • Frequency for inventory
    • Next inventory date
  • Following the above change, these records are now referred to as Location/Movement/Inventory records.
  • In Intake records, the fieldCollectionDate field is now correctly declared as a date field, rather than as a string field, in services schema (CSPACE-4883).
  • In Cataloging records:
    • The Content -> Concept field is now an autocomplete field whose terms come from the Concept authority, rather than a string field.
    • The Object History and Association -> Associated Concept field is now an autocomplete field whose terms come from the Concept authority, rather than a string field.
    • The Object Collection -> Field Collection Place field is now an autocomplete field whose terms come from the Place authority, rather than a string field.
