CUNY LIBRARIES ARE OPEN both ONLINE and on campus! We are open online for reference & instruction. E-resources are fully available. CUNY Libraries physical spaces are also open for quiet study, computers and wifi, materials pickup, and more. Please note that library plans are subject to change based on the evolving pandemic situation and plans at each campus. At this time, due to the pandemic, campus access (including libraries) may be restricted to each campus’ current students, faculty and staff. Some libraries require reservations. Please check our College Libraries page for details about the library you plan to visit.

Alma Implementation

Training Working Group


  • In consultation with all working groups and members of the CUNY Libraries, identify training needs related to the implementation of and continued use of a Alma at CUNY.
  • Create and develop a training strategy that addresses needs, format, existing vendor documentation, scalability, content creation, and consortial efficiencies.
  • Facilitate CUNY-wide training opportunities, instruction, and training related events based on the developed training strategy. 
  • Recommend training plans and strategies to the Alma Steering Committee.
  • Support librarians and staff within CUNY who are providing training by providing assistance in developing, assessing, and improving training sessions, learning objects, and training material.
  • Provide overall guidance on assessment and measuring effectiveness of instruction and assist with continued development of training events and programing.
  • The above should include specific suggested workflows that libraries identify as particularly important for early in our go live period on Alma. ( eg checking in and out books, sending materials to a bindery or other CUNY libraries, basic Acq and Cataloging functions )
