It’s a big day for the Red River College Library! Today marks the first day of the Library’s project to migrate its Voyager system to a much newer, cloud-based software platform called Alma.
Both software platforms, old and new, belong to Ex Libris, a company which has been the Library’s software vendor for the past fifteen years. Alma is the culmination of an initiative to develop a new kind of library system that streamlines procedures by incorporating the management of all resources: electronic, digital, and print, into one system.
Not only is Alma a more modern platform for resource management, it will give Library patrons improved searching and library account management via their RRC college credentials.
We project our new Alma system will be in place in July 2019, ready for the 2019-2020 academic year.
If you have any questions regarding the Alma Project please contact Mark Nelson, Alma Project Manager.
