This week, CLIC’s Implementation Team spoke with Tony Gibbons, our Ex Libris Pre-Implementation Project Manager, to begin work on the pre-implementation phase of CLIC’s migration to Alma and Primo.
Our pre-implementation phase will run through early November and will include completion of our Implementation Forms and submission of a validation data load from Millennium.
At the close of pre-implementation in November, we will switch from Tony to our Ex Libris migration project team (players to be named at a later date). In late December or early January, we will send in a test load of Millennium and Summon data for our test load period of January 15-30, 2017.
Our cutover data load will be sent in early May, with a final cutover date of May 31, 2017. There will be a freeze on technical services transactions in Millennium in early May and a freeze on circulation, holds, fines, and fees three days before cutover.
We encourage CLIC member library staff to sign up for the clic-migration list. The purpose of the CLIC Migration list is to provide a forum for all CLIC members to share information and work together across institutions, committees, and task forces to successfully complete the CLIC implementation of Alma and Primo. The CLIC Implementation Team will use this list to keep all members updated on migration activities.
Please contact your library’s Implementation Team representative if you have questions.
