Additional GIL Alma Implementation Information

Three Institutions Preparing For Data Migration Test


Leads from three institutions, Georgia Southern University, University of Georgia, and Valdosta State University attended a data migration webinar on January 14th. These institutions are members of the project's testing/vanguard phase. The webinar focused on the process by which data from our existing Integrated Library System (Voyager) will be migrated to Alma. Alma, an Ex Libris product, will become our new Library Management System around May 2017. The process and results of this phase will be documented and reviewed for improvements prior to engaging all institutions.

Voyager Data Cleanup Meeting on January 14th, 2016 at 10am


Calendar invitations have been provided to all of our project's institutional leads for a followup discussion regarding Voyager data cleanup. On Thursday, January 14th, 2016, representatives from the project team will review updates to the data cleanup spreadsheet. We also want to hear updates from the institutions as to their progress. Information concerning next steps for our institutions as well as a vanguard update will also be provided. We look forward to seeing you there!

Data Cleanup In Progress!


The Institutional Leads for the GIL Alma Implementation Project are currently identifying tasks necessary to cleanup Voyager data prior to the migration. A spreadsheet has been created that details the items each institution should address. This document is constantly updated with the latest sql statements and tips/tricks submitted by our community. Check with your institutional lead if you have any questions regarding how this effort might affect you and your institution.
