FLVC Workshops

In spring 2021, ExLibris offered Alma training to cover overall Alma functionality and workflow issues. FLVC have made the recordings of each session of the workshops available for staff to watch. The recordings listed below are from the Week 2 and Week 6 workshops: https://falsc.libguides.com/ILS-Implementation/spring_ws_recordings

In fall 2021, FLVC hosted five additional Ex Libris online workshops. These sessions focused on certain parts of the system that staff have questions with rather than a broad overview of all aspects of Alma/Primo VE. The areas covered in the new workshops are: Managing E-Resources, Primo VE, Managing Physical Resources, Cataloging, and Alma Analytics.
