The success of that pilot prompted additional Universities of Wisconsin institutions to join the partnership in fall 2023. UW-Madison is now testing a “peer to peer” Alma to VDX connection in order to further expand resource sharing partnerships with Wisconsin public libraries. These connections streamline workflows for staff while keeping item management in Alma. Conrad B/C Ex Libris Knowledge Days and ELUNA Events 2024 eluna-conf-planning@exlibrisusers.org
