TDL software developers begin Vireo sprint

image of diplomaOn Monday, September 13, the TDL software team began a development sprint devoted to improving the Vireo ETD Submission and Management System. The two-week sprint will focus on fixing four issues (see list below). A second planned sprint is currently slated for September 27-October 8.

Members of the TDL development team working on the sprints include Scott Phillips, Jade Lindquist, and Otto Fox; Alex Maslov, a senior software developer with the Texas A&M Libraries, is also lending his time and expertise to the project.

The current sprint will address four issues in Vireo:

  1. The Add/Save a Filter function is not working properly in the Vireo Admin interface.
  2. Administrators are not able to sort lists of ETDs by the UMI Publication Release column.
  3. The default selection for UMI Publication release should be unchecked.
  4. The MARCXML export tool requires upgrading to include the complete set of ETD metadata fields. (See the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations ETD Metadata Standard)
