When do reading lists become searchable in OneSearch?


Our courses in Alma, which get loaded automatically, have a start date. The start date is 2 weeks before the start of the semester. Courses also have an end date. The end date is the last day of the semester.

To become searchable/viewable in OneSearch, a reading list needs to be associated with an active course. Every night Alma runs a job that activates courses that are at or past their start date, and deactivates courses that are past their end date.

So normally, reserve titles for the coming term will be searchable about 13 days before the semester starts, and will stop being searchable the day after the semester ends.
