HERALD: The agreed project design

It’s a busy few months on the HERALD project. In March the final project design was agreed and work commenced almost immediately on the first major milestone: the creation of the ADS Library.

There’s been considerable interest in what is happening next, so we thought it would be a good idea to circulate the HERALD Stage 2 Project Design, so that people can see what has changed since we circulated the draft design last October.

Broadly speaking the timetable for the redevelopment project is as follows:
1. BIAB search interface and data entry interface – Autumn 2016.
2. Agreement of final functional specification for OASIS – Jan 2017.
3. Main OASIS form created – Winter 2017.
4. OASIS PLUS modules created – Spring 2018.
5. First testing release (ALPHA) – Summer 2018.
6. Beta Release – Autumn 2018*

As ever, questions and comments can be sent to the HERALD Project Manager, Jo Gilham. Or use the comments below.
