Calendars In Alma--Seriously???, Tari Keller May 2017

Calendars In Alma--Seriously???, Tari Keller

Library Presentations

Coming from Voyager, after over 16 years of setting up and updating calendars for a multi-library university, configuring the calendars in Alma was confusing. The calendars in Alma use the standard hours for major terms as a starting point. Exceptions are defined by “Closing” the library to shorten the hours and “Opening” the library to extend the hours, instead of giving the hours of operation on the days when exceptions occur. The University of Kentucky has everything from a 24 x 5+ main library to a 40 hour a week storage facility. Library hours change between semesters and do different ...

Starting Over: Coding To Work With Alma After Voyager, Kathryn Lybarger Jun 2016

Starting Over: Coding To Work With Alma After Voyager, Kathryn Lybarger

Library Presentations

When the University of Kentucky was a Voyager library, I wrote a variety of tools to support our processes, ranging from tiny one-line macros to larger software packages. Now that we've migrated to Alma/Primo, everything has changed! Many of the ways I extended Voyager are part of Alma by default, and Alma's community (and available APIs) encourage even further development. In this presentation, I will describe some differences between the two systems, how they affected the types of support tools I wanted, and the ways I was able to create them.

The Role Of The Library In The Micro Age, Antoinette Paris Greider Sep 1984

The Role Of The Library In The Micro Age, Antoinette Paris Greider

Library Presentations

The 1970s is seen as the decade that automated the technical processes in the library. Mainframe computers and minicomputers enable us to automate some of the most tedious tasks such as typing catalog cards, keeping track of circulation records and generating book orders. The 1970s also saw the advent and mastering of searching major reference tools electronically.

The 1980s brings a new development with the age of the microcomputer. Libraries can now do many of their processes with a microcomputer in house. They can create data bases, tailor make bibliographies, generate handouts and issue reports to meet their needs. Home ...
