The G3 Alma Implementation Team met with the three vanguard institutions on 11/19 to officially kickoff a new phase of the project. The vanguard institutions are Georgia Southern University, University of Georgia, and Valdosta State University. These institutions, along with the Implementation Team, will begin Alma training and preparation for a test Voyager to Alma data migration and Alma configuration. This smaller initial test phase will provide valuable information to better prepare us for the testing phase of all institutions.
This past week all institutions submitted their Alma and Primo Implementation forms as an initial step in the GIL migration to Alma and Primo in May 2017. These forms will be of great aid while preparing a more detailed project plan. Thank you to all the institutions for the effort and time taken!
