How we'll develop and extend our systems

Going live with Alma and Primo is not the end of our project, but rather the transition to a new phase of our technology initiative.

We expect to spend our first year with Alma and Primo learning intensively about how it functions. We'll have weeks of dedicated migration support from Ex Libris after we go live, including a two day onsite training visit in August to help us gear up for the 2017-2018 academic year.

As we get more familiar with the capabilities of Alma and Primo, we'll be looking to extend these systems and put them to work in innovative new ways to support teaching and learning at University of Redlands, now and into the future.
