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.
July 27, 2020: We have completed the Onboarding phase and are now in the second phase of the project, the Vanguard Phase. This phase allows us to perform a pre-implementation with eight representative institutions. It includes the major steps of implementation such as, training, data migration, system configuration, and initial workflow planning. There will be intense data review and workflow testing, including joint use and UBorrow workflows. The newly setup Alma and Primo VE instances for the vanguard libraries should be available the beginning of September. The knowledge gained will help us all make adjustments for the next Full Implementation for all forty libraries. For more information about the Vanguard institutions and activities during the phase, see the Implementation Timeline.
Ex Libris hosted a virtual "Kick-off" meeting on July 9th for the ILS Coordinators of the Vanguard institutions and all Working Group members. You can find the recording to the meeting here.
