Callisto 2.2

In January, we began rolling out a series of enhancements to Callisto’s capabilities. These are part of an even larger system redesign effort that is still underway. A little history seems relevant here. We first developed Callisto in 2010-2011, with it becoming available in August 2011. Although we made many small improvements in subsequent months and years, the software we built then was largely the same until this year. But the world wide web continues to evolve, such that technologies and practices in wide use on websites now are often very different, more varied, and more complex. The side-effect for Read More

Callisto Upgrade – June 2013

Many enhancements to Callisto were released in June.   The functionality improvements and two fixes were based on feedback from our customers.  Included: The integration support with EZproxy was enhanced to work properly even at institutions using customized EZproxy response pages. A new Provider details screen in the dashboard displays the URL(s) currently being used by Callisto to verify your subscriptions.  In the cases where an institution must use an embedded code in their URLs (e.g. for Gale databases), this custom URL is displayed. The Probe software has been enhanced so we can support additional providers and more title-level tracking that Read More

Callisto Upgrade – Oct. 2012 (Automatic event linking)

The October update included adjustments to how and when related events detected by Callisto get linked together.  On occasion, e-resource providers exhibit oscillations between working normally and failing.  This Callisto update allows the system to link such outages together into a sort of “master event list”, so that Callisto won’t report all those oscillations via alert emails, and won’t show it as fixed by the provider until they return to normal for a longer period of time. We also made improvements to the variety of subscription identifiers we can track.

Callisto Upgrade – Sept. 2012

September’s updates included many internal software improvements to expand compatibility with a wider variety of e-resource providers.
