Summer Meeting

A big thank you to everyone who attended and contributed to a very interesting and useful Summer Meeting! Our Alma experts did a fantastic job helping us understand the hows and whys of Alma operation. We have heard a lot of very good feedback about the sessions. I hope this was a good opportunity to put names and faces together, to meet some new colleagues, get some new ideas for work, and know who to call or visit with your questions.

Shared Record Loading

The DDA records managed in the Alma Network Zone allow us to offer access to title in every institution with a central record set. We hope to apply principles learned in that project to additional project and reduce duplicative effort.  

The CTST Serials/ERM group met yesterday after sessions on Marcive record loading and other sessions about record management. The group will be defining a pilot to test shared record loading. They will be coming up with a framework for determining how we load and update records from collections routinely together. We will provide updates as they become available.
