If you'd like to talk with CARLI staff and your CARLI library colleagues about Alma Fulfillment and Automated Fulfillment Network workflows, known issues, and Q & A, join us online on Friday, September 30, from 2:00-3:30 central.

Sessions are scheduled for every other week on Friday afternoons at 2pm.

CARLI Office Staff will be online to work with your questions and to facilitate the discussion.

  • The presentation portion of the session will be recorded for posting to the CARLI website.
  • If there is time for open Q &A, since Fulfillment involves patron data, the CARLI office will evaluate if it is fitting and valuable to post segments of the session for later review.

To register: Select the Register tab at the top of this page.
Connection information will be sent to registrants the day before.

Additional sessions of "Let's talk about Fulfillment (I mean Alma, not life's purpose)" are scheduled/have occurred.
Please register for future sessions if interested, or review past sessions for the discussion notes. All sessions are listed on the CARLI Event Calendar.

Have you had trouble getting faculty to make use of the technology in your makerspace? Libraries often build spaces that offer all kinds of exciting technologies, but sometimes faculty do not make use of the equipment. Due to budgets that are already stretched thin, faculty do not always have the resources or expertise to try out new technologies in their courses. Woodall highlights how they turned this around when Salisbury University Libraries partnered with the campus’s Faculty Learning Communities (FLC) program to create an opportunity for faculty interested in technologies like 3D printing and AR/VR to share their knowledge and explore how these technologies can enhance their courses. Through this program, they were able to develop a core group of evangelists on campus who could spread the word about how these technologies can be helpful for teaching in a wide variety of disciplines. Faculty were much more engaged and willing to work with the makerspace.

Chris Woodall is the Technology Librarian for the Salisbury University Libraries and the coordinator of the SU Libraries MakerLab. He has a BA in Music from Stephen F. Austin State University in Texas, and an MLS from Indiana University. In addition to running the day-to-day operations of the MakerLab, he provides instruction to SU students using MakerLab equipment for coursework, supports various back-end library technologies, creates custom web and mobile applications for the libraries.
