Recently, CUNY libraries migrated to Alma, our new library services platform. Alma is a pretty mighty piece of software. It can manage many, many library functions. Given how much it does, it amazes me that it works. I would love to look at the codebase for a bit, just to get a sense as to how it is organized.

My experience, as a user, has so far been pretty good. There are things that have confused me, although so far once I’ve learned their purpose, they are useful. I like how it brings together disparate library workflows, and makes them work together. It’s going to be a journey getting it all figured out, but it seems like a positive step.
