Processing serials in Alma feels like being at practice on a tennis court, bombarded with balls from a mechanical launcher. The balls are flying in every which direction and you can’t move fast enough to hit them all. As we develop our muscles and dexterity, we get better and better, but we are still not ready for Wimbledon. Managing print serials in Alma definitely tests your patience and investigative skills, but we are persistent and know when we need to build workarounds. Come and see how the University of Minnesota plays the serials game in Alma!
