Moving to Rapido: Considerations, Preparations, and Transitions. Greg Argo, University of St. Thomas; Dan Taylor, Ithaca College; Mark Paris, Brandeis University. 

When moving to a brand-new product, there is no tried and true roadmap or community best practices to draw on, so going live is a mix of imagination, planning, and making it up as you go. This session will relate the experiences of three libraries who have already gone live with Rapido. What considerations went into their implementations? What preparations did they make both internally and within their resource sharing networks to ensure seamless service to their users? What transitions did they make, and what were the outcomes?Join us to find out more specifics managing the move to Rapido.

Integrating Alma with Shared Offsite Consortial Collection. Corinna Baksik, Harvard University. 

Harvard is joining ReCAP, a shared collections and storage facility, with founding partners Columbia, Princeton, and NYPL. Millions of Harvard and partner titles have been committed to the collection for permanent retention for use by all partners. Most Harvard shared items continue to live at the Harvard Depository, and about a million Harvard items are stored at the ReCAP facility in New Jersey.  ReCAP operates a Shared Collection Service Bus, which must integrate with Alma for metadata, inventory data, use restrictions, commitment status, and patron requests. This session will focus on how Alma interoperates with the ReCAP service bus to achieve resource sharing, collective collections, and partner metadata discovery. 

The Terms They Carry: Analyzing License Terms in Alma Analytics for RapidILL. Martin Patrick, University of Minnesota. 

Alma stores a great deal of information about electronic resource license terms. Developing a sustainable way to collate electronic collections by license terms in order to build sets for RapidILL can present a challenge. This session will provide an overview of how the University of Minnesota approached and solved this problem using Alma Analytics.
