This Alma Training for Reynolds Libraries is intended to serve as an Alma guide tailored for our local workflows and policies.
As of May 2018, the VCCS - in collaboration with all the individual colleges -- are still actively configuring and preparing the transition to Alma (with an expected go-live date of late June 2018). As such, this guide will continue to evolve and be customized as more efficient workflows are discovered and new features are rolled out.
There are oftentimes several ways to complete similar tasks and sometimes there is no "right way"; however, the steps listed here will hopefully serve as best practices and therefore will aid in providing consistent service.
Although this guide is created with the goal of aiding in the transition from Aleph to Alma, it could serve a dual purpose in helping train new staff.
