Additional GIL Alma Implementation Information

Institutions Complete Data Validation

The institutions recently completed validating the data migrated from Voyager to Alma. Please check with your institutional leads if you wish to receive an update on this specific effort. This was a huge accomplishment! We now begin testing workflow scenarios. The institutional project teams were provided a list (created by the vanguards) of hundreds of workflows that need to be tested. Some of these workflows will apply to each institution and some will not. If you have a specific workflow that you need to ensure works for your institution, please let your lead know.

Institutions Receive Alma Test Environments

A major project milestone was obtained on Monday, October 24th, 2016! Every institution involved in the USG Alma Implementation received their Alma test environment. This environment contains data from the institution's Voyager instance that was migrated according to the instructions submitted by the institutional leads. The environment is also configured according to the wishes of the institutions. The immediate task for each institution is validation of this migrated data. The deadline to complete this validation is November 18th, 2016.
