Additional GIL Alma Implementation Information

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.

Institutions Completed Phase Two!

The institutions have now completed Phase Two of our project by submitting their institutional configuration forms. This forms will be used by Ex Libris as instructions to build the Alma test environments. The institutions now turn their attention to building test scenarios for both data validation and workflow scenarios. The institutions are expected to receive their Alma test environments on October 24th!

Institutions Completing Alma Configuration Instructions

All institutions are hard at work completing the initial set of instructions to be used by our vendor to configure each Alma test instance. The institutions have access to a variety of resources, including lessons learned by our vanguard institutions, to complete this "configuration workbook". In late October, the Alma test environments will be available and institutions will begin validating data and testing workflow scenarios.
