Alma – update on running reports
By Margaret Stone, on 16 October 2018
As Alma continues to bed in, I wanted to provide an update on the plans for extracting information using reports.
Firstly, under the terms of our contract, we will only retain access to Aleph and its reporting centre, ARC, until three months after the Alma go-live date. If you are using ARC, please therefore run any reports that you may need by the end of November and save the results outside ARC.
Secondly, some of the information used for collection management, specifically last loan date and total number of loans, has been migrated to Alma, so you will be able to report on this information indefinitely and the end of November deadline does not apply.
Thirdly, we will shortly be reviewing your reporting requirements from Alma and providing information about access to the Analytics module. To that end, please could you notify digital-library-support of any reports you expect to need from Alma, and we will incorporate that in our planning.
Thank you for your ongoing feedback and patience as issues are resolved.
