Abstract: In terms of acquisition processes, the aims and objectives of moving to Alma were to provide a single system that would support all processes, from selection and ordering, through to making new content available to users, and that would do this for all types of material print, electronic and digital. Alma implementation was also seen as an opportunity to shift the balance of staff time from supporting print activities towards e-resources, and in the process develop staff skills in e-resource selection, acquisition and management. Ultimately, the aim was to implement acquisition workflows that would contribute towards the one team' approach being developed in the library as a whole.
