Description

In 2014 and 2015, Loyola University Chicago Libraries migrated to Alma and Primo from Ex Libris's Voyager integrated library system (ILS) and the WebVoyage online public access catalog (OPAC), WorldCat Local, and a suite of electronic resource tools from Serials Solutions. We chose the radical act of leaving the past behind and deliberately changing all our systems at once. We grounded the project in a collaborative selection and implementation process with user experience data-driven decision-making. While the project is in the implementation phase at the time of writing, we can convey a number of best practices from the literature and suggestions for similar projects.
