Here's what I learned:
- Contacting database vendors is a time-sucker
- PPLD subscribes to a lot of database, each of which had to be altered in a separate script. Tedious and time-consuming
- We've linked to specific databases via Catalog authentication throughout ppld.org. Locating each instance and changing the scripts are not only tedious and time-consuming, but complicated.
- EZProxy rocks.
I'm pretty sure I fixed all issues involving the migration. However, only time and patron complaints will tell for sure.
All databases need to authenticate via EZProxy for the redesigned website. Hence the migration.
