Workflow & Organizations


Change Management, Unified Workflows

Learning Objectives

Participants can expect to learn about Boston College’s experiences developing Alma and migrating their data into Alma's cloud environment. They can also expect to learn improvements Boston College is expecting to bring with Alma focusing on e-resources and serials management.


In 2009, Boston College Libraries joined Ex Libris to develop its unified resource management system, Alma. Two and a half years later, Ex Libris has completed the initial development of Alma and is readying the solution for general availability. Through this session Boston College will share their experiences working with Ex Libris as a development partner for Alma and describe how Alma will change the way academic libraries manage e-resources and serials.
