Service Catalog Pilot Project Summary

Metadata Updated: May 11, 2018

This report summarizes the ServCat pilot project and offers recommendations for the full-scale implementation of the database. During the pilot project a total of 2,473 documents from 10 different refuges were entered into the ServCat database. A document can take anywhere from 5 to 60 minutes to scan. Overall, a general approximation is that it takes 30 minutes to scan a document and enter it as a record in ServCat. Several lessons were learned throughout the course of the pilot project that will help guide the implementation of the data mining effort at the full-scale. Full-scale implementation of the ServCat database will require collaboration between refuges, regions, and the Natural Resource Program Center. Standardizing the metadata entered in ServCat will make it easier to find a document in the database and faster to create a record. Templates, the master keyword list, and the ServCat Guidance should be used whenever possible to expedite data entry.
