About a year ago we sent a message out to our libraries asking if libraries wanted to migrate their Acquisitions data, ERM data, and/or Course Reserves data to the new Alma/Primo product. At that time we were not sure of the cost involved. Now that the contract is finalized and we are beginning the implementation of the Vanguards with all libraries following soon, we need to verify with Ex Libris the libraries that want to migrate these 3 pieces of data.
No charge to library for migration of their Acquisitions data (PALS is paying the $3000 fee),
$2040 fee to the library for migration of ERM data
$2040 fee to the library for migration of Course Reserves data.
NOTE: When we say ERM data, we do not mean the linker you are using. The linker data is included in the migration. ERM would be if you are using a separate product such as Serial Solutions 360 Resource Manager or the PALSconnect ERM.
If you have already responded to us with your migration wishes, you can ignore this message. If you do not plan on migrating any of these three pieces of data, you can ignore this message. If you do want to migrate pieces of this data and have not informed us yet, please do so by the end of the day Friday, September 22, 2017.
