Migrations are never easy, but they can provide great opportunities for growth and positive change. In migrating from Aleph to Alma, the Binghamton University Libraries found that while Aleph did many things, Alma has allowed us to understand how we can integrate existing functionalities that were known in Aleph but not easily taken advantage of. Some of these functionalities have let us automate processes; these include ordering API's with GOBI and Proquest; Invoicing for GOBI, Proquest, EBSCO; and now MARC record delivery with OCLC Cataloging partners. Come hear how three units (Acquisitions, Cataloging, and Systems) collaborated to implement automated functionality that has allowed the Binghamton University Libraries to keep up with a hiring freeze and 3 retirements.
