Session Description

Both The Master’s Seminary Library and the Colorado School of Mines Library went live with Alma in the summer of 2015. Join us as we share our migration experiences, including the many lessons learned during our Alma implementations. We will discuss timelines, project management, choosing a migration team, data preparation and cleanup, communication and training, workflows, certification, configuration, and more. We will also describe surprises we encountered, what went right during our migrations, and what we wish we could do-over. We’ll leave plenty of time for questions and maybe even some answers.
