Alma Implementation

Alma Events @ CUNY

Demo Day (October 29, 2019)

On Tuesday, October 29, 2019, Douglas Gaudieri and Katy Aranoff of Ex Libris demonstrated Alma to library faculty and staff across the CUNY Libraries.

The event ran from 2 to 5 PM but, unfortunately, due to technical difficulties, the recording ended around 3:40 PM, at the time of the scheduled break. The topics of circulation and analytics were not recorded, nor was the question-and-answer session. Additionally, due to an unstable internet connection in the room, the video and audio occasionally dropped, creating a somewhat jumpy recording.

We apologize sincerely to those who attended in person and those relying on the recording to get acquainted with the system.

Functional Workshops (March 30 - April 2, 2020)

The in-person Ex Libris-led Alma event that was originally scheduled to occur at Brooklyn College between March 31 and April 2 moved to a virtual environment in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. To accommodate the remote learning experience, it was expanded to run from Monday, March 30, to Thursday, April 2. Each day concluded with a general Q&A session with the trainer, Megan Drake.
