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.



March 1, 2021:

Spring Workshops begin today! There will be ten repeated workshops held in March, April, and the first week of May. The workshops run for four days, Monday-Thursday, for all interested library staff. If you have not signed up for sessions, information about the workshops and how to register can be found in the Spring Workshops section of the LibGuide.

Functional and workflow testing begin today! Since the release of the full forty Testload environments, staff have concentrated on Data Review. Everyone can now begin functional and workflow testing.

The Testload Primo VE instances were released to all institutions on February 16th. Ex Libris hosted a “First Look” for all library staff. The webinar provided a tour of Primo VE. The current views are a starting point, customization for each of the institutions' Primo VE interfaces will continue throughout the Testload Phase. The link to the recording and PowerPoint slides are available and posted on the Implementation LibGuide.

The Full Forty Testload Alma environments for all institutions were released on February 9th! FALSC and FLVC staff, Working Groups members, Ex Libris implementation team, and library staff from all libraries have been working on setting up the Alma test environments for all 40 institutions. 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 Implementation LibGuide.

FALSC has added a new page to the Libguide labelled Project Presentations. Staff can find a listing of webinar sessions associated with the implementation project. There are links to the video of the event as well as to the associated slides, if available. We will add more presentations to this page as we continue through the project.
