Registration Instructions

  • Pay with credit card (visa or mastercard), or choose offline for check/wire transfer payments.
  • Do not log in if prompted.
  • Check your contact information before submitting the registration.
  • Attendees can register through 10:00 am eastern the day of the event to receive a link to watch the live session(s), or view the recording of the presentations via on demand at a time more convenient.
  • On demand registrations received after 10:00 am eastern on the day of the event will be processed on a weekly basis, so please note there will be slight delay in the response. Once processed, a link will be sent in order to view the recording on demand.
  • Each session contains multiple presentations and will cost $25 per attendee. The $25 registration fee is per session per attendee for the live session and/or on demand recording.  Currently, there are no volume or bulk discounts for ELUNA Learns.  The registration and on-demand link are registered to each individual participant's email address.  ELUNA is committed to keeping the cost for our educational events affordable, especially in these budget-challenged times.  In order to provide quality member-based programming, we ask that individuals register for each of the events that are relevant to their work. Sharing login information for group-viewing sessions undermines the ELUNA's ability to provide this programming. If you value this program and the community that provides this content, either via the face to face meeting or online, please register for each session you will attend with your email account.

      Auditing Usage Statistics or: What To Do When You Don’t Have Other Work.  Sunshine Carter, University of Minnesota, Michael Johnson, University of Minnesota, Grace Lilyerd, University of Minnesota 

      In 2019, the University of Minnesota Libraries conducted an audit of their vendor-supplied usage statistics. The project included a review of usage statistics collected and stored in Alma, development of a Tableau visualization for gap analysis, and a strategy for ongoing management. This session will demonstrate the rationale and processes behind the assessment as well as discuss the outcomes and benefits.

      Comparing Acquisitions Workflows: APIs vs. Import Profiles. Abigail Bibee, University of Arizona 

      Alma allows several options for automating POL creation at the point of order, thereby increasing acquisitions workflow efficiency. This practical presentation examines the benefits and drawbacks of two different tools designed to automate POL creation in Alma: the new order API and the new order import profile. This presentation compares how each workflow interacts with various formats and acquisition models including firm, demand-driven, approval, and ebook upgrades. Best practices for using the API and import profiles will be discussed and general guidance on Alma configuration will be provided. 

      Adding Local Electronic Collections in AlmaKristy Eklund, DALNET 

      While some TED Talks records are available from vendors such as Films on Demand, our consortium has created MARC records for these freely available resources in OCLC Connexion. This presentation will demonstrate the steps involved in adding a local electronic collection of TED Talks to Alma and making it discoverable in Primo. Using this collection of MARC records, users will learn how to create a local electronic collection, as well an import profile. Also, learn from our experience in trying to contribute these records to the Alma Community Zone. 

      Change is the Only Constant in Libraries. Yuval Kiselstein, ProQuest (Platinum Sponsor); Davin Pate, University of Texas at Dallas; Jennifer Matthews, Rowan University; Sarah Haight Sanabria, Southern Methodist University.

      Join us for a lively discussion on how the pandemic has changed selection and acquisitions and what the future could be for academic librarians.
