In this follow-up to ENUG 2016’s popular session on “License Management in CORAL versus Alma,” the presenter describes UConn Library’s transition of vendor and license management from CORAL to Alma. Whereas last year’s session reviewed the differences between the systems and explored the comparative advantages and disadvantages of each, this year’s session will explain how UConn Library executed the transition from a locally hosted, open-source CORAL eresources management system to the Ex Libris Alma next-gen services platform. Topics will include the benefits of moving licensing to Alma, the new system’s limitations, challenges of implementation, opportunities for collaboration, public display of important license terms in Primo, and especially workflow development and optimization within Alma. The presenter will display screenshots and perform live demos throughout this session. The presenter will actively solicit feedback and questions throughout the session, not just at the end. Attendees will gain a clear, contextualized understanding of the benefits and challenges of leveraging Alma’s license management capabilities.
