Alma and interoperability:

Maximizing Alma’s role in the institutional landscape

Kevin Lin, Sue Harmer

abstract
Abstract

“Alma is a core library system but does not stand alone. This paper will examine the ease of making Alma interoperate with other systems to provide services for users. It will discuss interoperability with Primo and the Alma Premium Sandbox, the Relais ILL system using NCIP, self-check machines using SIP2, the Monitor Business Machine online payment of fines using SIP2, EDI ordering with vendors, and authentication for library users using Active Directory. Ease of set-up and maintenance, as well as issues and advantages will be discussed.”
