Hands-on Exercises

Hands-On Exercises (adapted from FALSC's LibGuide)

These exercises were provided by Ex Libris and modified by FALSC to help staff become familiar with working in Alma. Each document has step-by-step instructions on how to do many of the basic functions in each area. The documents recommend using the FALSC sandboxes, since all library staff have access to them.
