    Going Contactless: Configuring Alma, Primo, and Primo VE for Home and Locker Delivery. Christina Hennessey, California State University, Northridge; Kevin Phillips, California State University, Fullerton. 

    Due to most California State University (CSU) Libraries being physically closed for the 2020-2021 academic year, our libraries still wanted to provide a way to get physical library items to our patrons through home and locker delivery. Across the CSUs, we shared Alma & Primo configuration instructions, policy decisions, and training ideas, and we will share what worked well and what did not. We also tested Primo VE in Spring 2021 and will share what configuration changes were necessary for that platform. Two CSU institutions will explain how to configure your own Alma, Primo, and Primo VE systems to support home and locker delivery, including a Alma webhook to move user information from the Alma user database to the locker database, possible workflows and system configurations for your home and locker delivery, and how to make continued system changes as libraries gradually re-open during 2021. 

    The Future of Library Search: Putting Ex Libris Discovery Directly in Your Patron’s Workflow. Matt Hayes, Lean Library. (Gold Sponsor) 

    Patrons are increasingly using public discovery services such as Google Scholar, Semantic Scholar, PubMed and others to being their discovery process. Recent reports have shown that over 40% of patron discovery now begins on Google. Join the ExLibris and Lean Library product teams to discuss their new integration, embedding your library’s discovery service into these public discovery services and other parts of the patron workflow such as academic publisher websites. The session will include a live demo and will discuss some of the key benefits this partnership will offer to both patrons and librarians, including increased usage and visibility of library services and enhancing patron support for quality discovery. 

    Leganto: You're All I Need to Get By… the PandemicJane Foo, Seneca College; Therese Tisseverasinghe, Seneca College. 

    From potentiality to exploring new and exciting possibilities. That’s our story in a nutshell. We’ll never know what would have been if we hadn't been struck by a sudden global pandemic that made going virtual a full-blown reality. Seneca Libraries purchased Leganto in the Spring of 2020, intent on a slow and measured year-long implementation process. Then the pandemic hit, reshuffling all our priorities. Within a matter of days, compelled by tight deadlines and faculty demand for online resources, we found ourselves scurrying on an intense, curtailed path to implementing Leganto with BlackBoard. In this session we will share our experiences from where we started to where we are now. Key topics covered include: Implementation and roll out process, various use case scenarios, and lessons learned. 

    Fully Book-ed: Increasing Access to Reserves while Simplifying the Process. James Pape, University of Mary Washington, Olivia Vander Bleek, University of Mary Washington. 

    What happens when a library figures out how to bring the library to the patron? The library becomes the center of campus once again by getting students to understand that the library is more than a building, and with their help we can provide resources to more people than ever before. Find out how we are increasing our visibility and providing library resources and other online content directly to students inside their course management system, and integrating this with our physical reserves collection.
