Licensing is an essential component of acquisitions, electronic resource management, and scholarly communication. So how does Alma perform in terms of license management? And how does its performance rival those of other library services platforms and e-resource management systems? The University of Connecticut is assessing whether to migrate its license and vendor data from CORAL, a commonly used open-source ERMS solution, to Alma. This presentation compares and contrasts the licensing functionalities of Alma versus CORAL and makes the case for (and against) migration. Features, pros, and cons of each system will be contrasted and the working user interfaces will be demonstrated. Other library license managers will be discussed. Attendees will leave this presentation with a clearer, contextualized understanding of the benefits and limitations of using Alma for license management.
