Better Together: Successful Collaborations with Alma Exhibitor session Marriott Marquis San Francisco
Golden Gate C1
Description :

In today's cash-strapped economic environment, libraries are under pressure to reduce costs, improve services, and remain relevant to their institutions and users. These combined pressures are encouraging libraries to increase collaboration and in more effective ways. Alma Collaborative Networks enable consortia—as well as groups of individual institutions—to collaborate in new and streamlined ways, managing their processes more efficiently. We will focus on Collaborative Network functionality across the different types of collaborative networks.

Best Practices for Library Management Implementation Exhibitor session Marriott Marquis San Francisco
Golden Gate C1
Description :

Before you move house, you usually clean out the attics and closets; moving to a library system is no different. A little planning, a little careful preparation, and the migration process can help ease things along. In this session, we will share best practices and lessons learned from migrating to a next generation management system. From cleaning out the bibliographic closets to rethinking staff workflows, migration is an opportunity to chart current processes and plan for the future.

Bring It All Together: Connecting Library, Faculty and Students through a Resource and Reading List Solution Exhibitor session Marriott Marquis San Francisco
Golden Gate C1
Description :

Academic libraries face sizable challenges in convincing faculty to use library resources and services as part of the online learning environment. The tasks of creating, maintaining, and providing access to resource lists involve many institutional systems, such as course management, discovery, library management, and student services. In this session, we will demonstrate an integrative reading-list solution and showcase its workflows spanning across institutional domains and library systems.

Data-driven Approach for Supporting Day-to-Day and Strategic Decisions Exhibitor session Marriott Marquis San Francisco

Increasingly under pressure to demonstrate their value to their institution, libraries need creative ways to improve efficiency and productivity. Powerful analytic capabilities enable libraries to put numbers on their value and to expose tangible evidence of their leading role in the academic lifecycle. Valuable insight into libraries’ operations can be gained via purchasing trends, comparative analysis, and even predictive analysis. We will explore ways in which Alma Analytics can take libraries into the next generation.
