Abstract

Southern Adventist University migrated from Aleph to Alma in the summer of 2016. We anticipated a fairly easy and uncomplicated migration from one Ex Libris product to another, but there were still issues that we needed to deal with post-migration. Some because of our own Aleph practices, some because we didn't understand Alma terminology and practices, and some just because there are always post-migration problems. We elected to not use automated processes to perform these clean-up tasks because we feared the outcome if we used them incorrectly, being new to the system and its terminology and operations. These are the lessons we learned doing these tasks manually, and some suggestions for other sites to help minimize these post-migration issues.
