Converting Aleph patron PLIF records into Alma’s SIS format
So, you’ve moved to Alma, but your patron records are still in Aleph PLIF format. In this article we will describe a xsl file that can be used in order to convert Aleph patron PLIF records into Alma’s SIS format.
The XSLT file is a template that handles the conversion of PLIF file (with any number of patrons) into Alma format.
There are a few fields that can be manipulated according to customer needs:
- User group
- User block
- User note
- User statistic
The conversion can be done using any XML+XSL tool.
Update July 2021: You can use this XSL in the SIS Integration Profile to have it run automatically as a part of the SIS import. See the online help for more details.
