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, November 11, 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.

Electronic resources. In the library world that phrase can inspire awe, confusion, and sometimes fear. Veteran-ish Serials & Electronic Resources Librarian Sarah Mueth at UNC-Wilmington has experienced all of these feelings and more at work. In this session we hope to show you that while the work may seem daunting it is also satisfying, interesting, sometimes even fun—and that you never have to go it alone.
