The role of li­braries and li­brar­i­an­ship has typ­i­cally lagged be­hind new tech­nolo­gies. For ex­am­ple, MARC, Z39.50, and OpenURL are still in use to­day--but is this a bad thing? Not nec­es­sar­ily. These stan­dards still have value, but as the li­brary evolves, new data sys­tems are needed to be able to man­age legacy data, as well as cur­rent and de­vel­op­ing stan­dards.

This pre­sen­ta­tion is about the ad­vance­ments in Alma and how li­braries can: (1) man­age print, elec­tronic, and dig­i­tal re­sources, and; (2) un­der­stand the life cy­cle of elec­tronic re­sources from ac­qui­si­tion to search to ac­cess on a provider plat­form.

Key­words: li­braries; data sys­tems; meta­data stan­dards; meta­data man­age­ment
