Alma Operational Policies Reminder

The Collaborative Technical Services Team has approved an array of policies for how library staff should use Alma in their daily tasks. The policies mandate specific processes in order to preserve database integrity. Please read all of the following policies if you are working live in Alma.
  • Adding Missing ISBNs to Existing WorldCat Master Records (12/20/2013)
  • Bound-withs (12/03/2013)
  • In-Process Brief Bibliographic Records (10/23/2013)
  • Overlay (10/14/2013)
  • Retaining and Deleting MARC Fields in OCLC Records (11/12/2013)
  • Suppression of Physical Inventory (11/12/2013)
These policies are linked on the Alliance webpage. Choose Programs and click "Technical Services." Better yet, bookmark the page so you have all policies at your fingertips. Policies are also posted in the policy section of SILS Docs.

Supervisors, please make sure all of your staff are aware of these policies and forward this message to anyone not on the Announce mailing list.
