Next Gen ILS Implementation

This is for FALSC's Alma/Primo VE Implementation Project.


Welcome to the Alma / Primo VE Implementation Guide

We will be using this LibGuide to share information among the teams, Working Groups and Discussion Groups outlined in the Organization Framework for Implementation Document and the Organizational Framework for Implementation Graphic. Please feel free to check back to this guide often for updates and the latest information on this exciting project.



April 8, 2021:

Functional and workflow testing began on March 1 and continues through June 15. Library staff and local implementation teams are now concentrating on functional and workflow testing in their individual Alma and Primo VE environment. See your ILS Coordinator for your institution's Alma and Primo VE URLs. On the LibGuide, you can find information about the Full Testload Phase, including how to report an issue, our Known Issues list, Testing Checklists, Migration Statistical Reports, Primo VE links, and more.

Spring Workshops continue. Ex Libris will be repeating the weekly (Monday-Thursday) workshops through May 6th. Each workshop is divided into 10 sessions which cover different aspects of the Alma library system. Library staff can sign up for all sessions for the week or only those sessions that pertain to their job duties. Information on how to register for a session is available on the Spring Workshops section of our Implementation LibGuide.

FLVC has begun customizing the “look and feel” of the Primo interfaces, while some institutions have chosen to do their own customization. The Primo VE instances were released to all institutions on February 16. The recording link and PowerPoint slides for Ex Libris’ initial tour of Primo VE is available and posted on the LibGuide.

The Full Forty Testload Alma environments for all institutions were released on February 9th! Ex Libris hosted an open meeting for all library staff to review Alma and go over the process of reviewing data. The recording link and PowerPoint slides are available on the LibGuide.
