Getting Started with Alma
Ex Libris videos provide an introduction to Alma and some basic acquisitions workflows. However, CUNY will have an Institution Zone, Network Zone, and Community Zone. Be aware that most Ex Libris videos do not mention the Network Zone (a collaborative feature for consortia).
Getting to Know Alma
"Orientation" series includes short videos with total running time of 15-16 minutes. At the end of the two searching videos, there is a handout of the last video. Other videos are arranged by topic and are more detailed for each area; running times are listed.
Includes videos, terminology/documentation, and links to specific sub-topics which are quite detailed. If you've already watched "Getting to Know" series, you can start with "Navigating in Alma" rather than the orientation.
