[en] If it is well prepared, migrating from Aleph to Alma brings users a lot of advantages. To reach the go live day with as less worries as possible, ULg Library's preparation consisted in two things: a deep understanding of Alma new concepts and a simplification of our physical fulfillment policy. This presentation, based on our experience, will aim at describing the main differences between Aleph and Alma regarding fulfillment concepts and their significant consequences on implementation and migration jobs. On a fulfillment point of view, what distinguishes Aleph from Alma is that, in Aleph, the circulation policy is based on item status. On the contrary in Alma it is based on the location, and its traffic rules built by a set of terms of uses (TOU). Numerous other idioms complete the Alma toolkit and allow physical item’s fulfillment customizing. But to really enjoy the new possibilities given by Alma, it is important to fully feel the necessary changes… at the very beginning !
