Alma/Primo VE Training and Communications

A guide to internal training and communications resources for the Alma/Primo migration project @ UVic Libraries

Project Milestones

Project timeline


Although, it might seem that the migration project is moving quickly, the Alma /Primo VE project began in September 2020. 

Back in September 2020, a Library Management Platform Request for Proposal (RFP) Committee was struck and the RFP was posted in November 2020. The RFP award to Ex Libris Alma and Primo VEwas announced on July 21, 2021.

The UVic Libraries project team is working with Ex Libris to deliver Go Live on June 28, 2022 and at time of writing in February 2022, we are in the Implementation phase. We have submitted our data migration form and are awaiting delivery of our test environment. This is an instance of Alma containing UVic Libraries data and we hope to have our first look at Primo in March.
