As SUNY Libraries enter the homestretch of our Alma/Primo VE implementation, we have a need to hear from those brave pioneers who have blazed the trail for us. The 2019 SUNYLA Midwinter Virtual Conference will focus on the ways in which library staff at non-SUNY colleges have implemented Alma and Primo, the problems they ran into during migration, and things that they wished they’d known ahead of time. This conference’s presenters, who hail from both public and private institutions, will provide attendees with information about ways in which they managed their consortial environments, how they organized data and analytics, and best practices for tech services and for OA collections.

Technology requirements for attendance:  Computer, internet connection, microphone/speakers (headset recommended) or telephone.  Zoom will be used for this conference and is free for use by attendees.
