Next-generation library systems promise new opportunities to expand beyond our existing methodologies and in response there has been a surge of institutions migrating to web-based systems. A lot of research and planning goes into choosing and moving to a new ILS, but what happens after migration and implementation? And how closely does reality align with expectations? This session will share the experiences of 3 institutions who implemented ExLibris’ Alma as early adopters and explore the ways in which they conceptualize the role of the ILS. Speakers will engage the audience on the challenges in effective management of workflows in a constantly changing environment, the continuous assessment of Alma’s relationships with staff, other systems (e.g., digital assets management, discovery), and impact on our users, and the potential for greater collaboration in the future. Questions and comments are highly encouraged from the audience.
