3rd Party Tools Used:
Custom Tools Used:
- Truett Seminary researchers collect and approve new records in three separate Excel sheets. One each for books, articles, and theses/dissertations.
- Once approved, these Excel sheets are processed using the RHT_Processing.ipynb Jupyter Notebook. This creates a composite Excel file, including standardized column headers, Google Scholar and Worldcat URLs, binned date categories, composite fields for all-field searching, and citation style formatting.
- This composite Excel sheet is used by Power BI to provide online searchable access. A searchable version will be available via https://sites.baylor.edu/rht/ using Microsoft Power BI. Baylor ITS undergoes rigorous security reviewes for web applications and platforms. As Power BI previously passed such a security review, and as there are no further fees incurred, we decided to use this 3rd party software to build the searchable database.
