Alma/Primo Training Update February 4, 2019

This week the PALS Staff will begin a series of webinars and Q&A sessions to assist you in making the most effective use of Alma and Primo. Many of the sessions being held during the first two weeks of February are Q&A sessions. As you work with Alma and Primo, begin to jot down your questions so you can bring them to the sessions.

The full training schedule is here.

This is how the Q&A sessions will work: 

  • Library staff members are encouraged to bring their questions to the Q&A session. 
  • There will be no prepared presentations. 
  • Once all questions have been answered, the session will end. It may not last the entire 90 minutes if there are no more questions.
