Primary tabs

Thursday, May 21, 2020 (All day)


Please Note: Because of the requirements of the Big Ten Center, and because lunch will be provided, attendees must register separately for each day. You may attend only Day 1 (Resource Management) or only Day 2 (Fulfillment) or both days, but if you are attending both days, you need to complete a registration for each day. Building security will check the registration list to allow entry, so we will not be able to accommodate last minute replacement of one attendee for another. 

This is a Day Two Session: Access Services Activities in Alma: User Records, Fulfillment configuration, day-to-day patron services, course reserves

If you wish to also attend Day 1 (Resource Management), please register for it separately from the CARLI website calendar.
