We use INNView to view authorities while we are cataloging in Sierra. We noticed the data stopped updating sometime this spring, after Innovative did a server migration for this hosted service. Our ticket about the lack of updates got sent to "software engineering" in July and our attempt to get an update was not successful.

So - does anyone use this? I'm certainly not going to pay for it again/renew it in this state, but I wonder if it's worth continuing to bang my head against this particular brick wall. If I'm the only one using it, I can just let it go... plenty of other walls.

Anyone else cataloging locally in Sierra? What do you do for authority control during cataloging? Cut-and-paste to/from LC or a bib utility?

(We have a vendor for ongoing updates, but when doing original cataloging we need to get the headings right...)

Thanks,
Scott

Hi, Scott,

We are having the same problem and have submitted several tickets, but have received no answer. I can only assume that SkyRiver's authority are taking place of INN-View as they appear to be up to date.

Best,
Lynn

Scott and Lynn, any progress? Or could you send me a recent ARN that I can check? I could find nothing in known issues, though I noticed I got different results depending on whether I searched "INN-View" or "authorities".

It is a useful service, at an exorbitant price. But we could probably live without it. We catalog mostly in Connexion for output to sierra, so LC authorities are used primarily for the headings reports.

We created NACO records in Connexion and usually they show up in a week or two. They stopped showing up. Also, our authority control vendor started sending updates for headings we had just cataloged (using INNView) because they were not current...

OK, I'm puzzled. How do you know that the data is not being updated? We use INNView authorities quite heavily here and love the way it integrates seamlessly with the headings reports and cataloging records. I admit that I haven't noticed any problems...
