UConn Library migrated its integrated library system from Voyager to Alma in 2015. In 2017, we moved eresources management (ERM) and licensing operations from CORAL to Alma. CORAL is an open source, locally hosted electronic resource management system (ERMS), while Alma is a proprietary cloud-hosted next-gen system from Ex Libris that centralizes library financial, acquisitions, circulation, reserves, and other operations in one system. How did this switch from CORAL to Alma impact us? On one level, this presentation compares and contrasts the functionalities of the two systems and how migrating from one to the other impacted library workflows and collaborations. Beyond product comparison, this presentation will examine how Alma is reconceptualizing and reshaping eresources management in relation to other functional roles, people, and values. This poster is relevant to librarians working in metadata, acquisitions, licensing, design, and any other role impacted by library systems.
