The 2nd round of this year’s voting on the enhancements for Aleph will commence on 1st October. This is a little later than planned – the delay having being caused by the work involved in discussion, clarification, assessment and allocation of points, variously by ourselves and Ex Libris. The voting will close on the morning of Tuesday 13th October at 9am BST (8am UTC).
There are 32 enhancements with ‘votable’ status for voting on – these are the enhancements which received the top votes in the 1st round.
Make sure that you can access the DB before the voting starts (though you will not be able to place any votes until the 1st October) and also check through the ‘votable’ status requests to decide which ones your institution would like to vote on.
Each institution will have 100 votes for its preferred enhancements.
