Q. What is Alma?
Ex Libris Alma is a cloud-based library services platform which we implemented in 2018. It manages the records of our print, electronic and digital collections. Through this system, we can also check out our library books to our patrons. Our patrons interface with the metadata contained in Alma is through a discovery platform called Primo, which we simply refer to as our catalog and can be found as a search box on our home page. Through Primo you can locate materials in our collection as well as those held by local consortium libraries called the Washington Research Library Consortium. GULC patrons who have questions on how to search through the catalog may contact the Reference Desk.
