This year, library staff at Willamette University, as members of a larger testing group, piloted the latest acquisitions functionality developed by Ex Libris and YBP for the Alma library management service. This new collaboration provides automated workflows for the end-to-end selection and acquisition of content between our vendor systems. Now library staff can select content in the YBP platform, and upon purchase, the content and related acquisition information are updated in Alma in real time, without the need to upload records or re-enter acquisition data. By saving time and resources, this integration enables librarians to dedicate more time to providing valuable services to end users. In this session, we will discuss the lessons and outcomes of the pilot and implementation process, including observed time savings.
