The I-90 Hustle: A Pilot in Peer-to-Peer Resource Sharing
Thu 17 Sep, 2020, 12:10–12:35, Zoom - 2
Conference or Developers' Day
Conference (20 minutes + 5 min Q/A)
Session Abstract
Have you ever wondered if you could use Alma to facilitate resource sharing outside your current consortia or even from another state? Over the past year the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Northwestern Libraries have engaged in a resource sharing experiment to connect our two Alma environments…ourselves. We will give a brief overview of the resource sharing environment at each location, discuss steps used to enable the connection between Alma, as well as our experiments with Primo deep search discovery. Since sometimes the technical configuration is the easy part, we will also share our real-world experience with logistics, shipping, and workflow training. Our workflow instructions, customized slips, configuration documentation and an Alma Analytics dashboard for tracking materials will be shared at the presentation.
