Migration/Implementation | Annual Meeting Orchestra C/D
May 16, 2024 11:15 AM - 12:00 Noon(America/Chicago)
20240516T1115 20240516T1200 America/Chicago Thank You for Being a Friend! Acquiring Wisdom in the First Year Post-Migration Migration has concluded, Alma is live, and now the challenge emerges: implementing a new acquisition system. Where do you turn when your long-established system specific procedures become obsolete? While specific task outcomes may remain consistent, the approaches to achieving these results have fundamentally changed. The opportunity exists to dramatically shift responsibilities due to Alma's different functionality compared to past practices. You want to use Alma to its fullest potential, but how? Sometimes, knowing where to start is half the battle. Our discussion aims to highlight the collaboration within the Alma community in addressing acquisition specific challenges, ranging from updating default settings, establishing real time ordering through GOBI, managing import profiles, effectively leveraging FTP for embedded order metadata ingest, and more. Join us as we reflect on our inaugural year of Acquisitions, sharing experiences to inform future implementers and reminiscence with current users about their early journey.
