0DLC Importer

o Added 'Place of Publication' as a data element in the Spreadsheet Importer that can be
mapped to a column in the user's data file.
o Added Verification methods in all three importers (MARC, METS, and Spreadsheet) to help
ensure that required data elements exist in the user's data file prior to adding or saving
the Bib record to the database.
o Extensive testing and creation of a test document

SUFDC Web ( Version 2.4.2- 8/7/2008)
o Moved all long-term application global values into global.asax
Can't pull from database in global.asax (connects non-anonymously?)
All data pulled from OnInit( in ufdc.aspxwhen the values are NULL (first time)
o Added option ?m=zz, which only clears the item list and multiples hashtable
o Added <%VERSION%> option in footer, to display current version of web app
o Citation_ Viewer now reads the biblio_mets.xmlfiles which contains just the bibliographic

was requested

* UFDC Web ( Version 2.4.1 7/31/2008)
o Updated application to .NET Framework 3.5
o An ufdc error email box ('ufdcerr@uflib.ufl.edd) is now included in all error message
emails. This will allow other members of Systems to examine the error messages, and
increase the ability to perform general troubleshooting in my absence.
o All incoming requests which include neither the browser nor operating system will be
quickly disregarded and sent to a robots entrance.htmlpage.
o 'UFDCHome appears in the header in more cases
o Moved the StringBuilderfor collecting the user logs into the global.asaxfile and used
locking to ensure no cross-thread collisions

o Incoming Package Ageing

1. New and Replacement packages will continue to'age' for an hour before being

o Metadata Updates
1. Metadata updates should reflect much quicker than before, although they will not
be searchable until greenstone builds. (TEMPORARILY, metadata updates may
not reflect online until the next day. This will be corrected with a new version of
UFDC later this week).
2. Metadata updates can be used to change collections (i.e., you can use a metadata
update to move a package from DLOC to FLCITY collections).
