Next Gen ILS Implementation

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



The Alma/Primo VE Implementation Project with Ex Libris officially ended on September 21, 2021! 

FLVC has now Switched to Support with Ex Libris and we go into their regular support with all the other North American customers. It has been over two months since the Alma/Primo VE Go Live on July 13, 2021.

This Next Gen ILS Implementation LibGuide will remain available so everyone will continue to access all the valuable information, however, it is static.

Sunsetting the Organizational Framework for the ILS Implementation occurred at the end of August and was approved by the MCLS Executive Committee since the various groups were formed for implementation, and we are now live in the new system. The designated ILS Coordinators will continue to have one representative from each institution to be the single contact person and the conduit to disseminate information to their institution. All the Working Group members have moved from WG listservs to the respective subject area listservs in order for the important discussions/questions to continue. 

Please refer to our Resource Alma/Primo VE Guide. FLVC is creating a one-stop resource for all aspects of our system, including resources for learning how to use Alma and Primo VE, how to configure certain customized components, and links to documentation and training videos.

Ex Libris staff are presenting the Fall Workshops for Alma/Primo VE from September 7 - October 7. The areas covered in these new workshops are: Managing E-Resources, Primo VE, Managing Physical Resources, Cataloging, and Alma Analytics. To register, go to the Fall Workshops LibGuide section
