Testing the AFN together: Optional Session #1

Primary tabs

Friday, January 31, 2020 - 9:00am to 10:30am

In Alma, the Automated Fulfillment Network (AFN) functionality is the analog to Voyager's Universal Borrowing (UB) functionality. Ex Libris staff have finished the initial setup of the AFN for all 91 I-Share libraries, and it's time for all I-Share libraries to test both the network setup, and their library's own settings.

To assist, the CARLI Office is scheduling several optional, live, group testing opportunities.

To attend, please register using the link above.
We want to be sure this review is limited to only I-Share member library staff.
The CARLI Office will send the connection information to registrants the day before the session.

These sessions will be recorded, but, the recordings will be for CARLI Office/Ex Libris use only.

  • Those who plan to attend would benefit from watching:
