Various FLVC staff currently have Administrator access to Alma and Primo VE for all 40 institutions and the Network Zone. If an institution needs to change a configuration setting in Alma or Primo VE, a request can be submitted to the FLVC Help Desk. If role changes are needed to an existing staff account or an account is needed for a new staff member, the FLVC Help Desk asks that you complete either of the forms located under the Alma User Roles section of this Libguide. Requests for these changes are usually addressed by FLVC in a timely manner.

The LRA can grant administrator access to various areas of the system to another staff member as long as that person has:
