Angela Merrill Represents Roberts at ALA Conference
In June of 2017, Golisano Library Systems Specialist Angela Merrill was invited by ExLibris to speak at the American Libraries Association Annual Conference in Chicago. Roberts Wesleyan College continues to lead the way in which students access resources, conduct research, interact with other institutions, and partner with organizations. As a result, Angie presented on implementation and utilization of Alma at Roberts Wesleyan College, sharing insight into how the system has transformed our campus and how the library continues to cross-train staff to enhance workflows. Her session was presented to thirty-five different institutions, including the Library of Congress and Harvard, who are in the process of implementing or considering a transition to the next generation library system. Angie is collaborating with ExLibris in the formation of an Upstate New York user group to establish partnerships with other colleges and universities that utilize ExLibris products and services. She was also invited to speak at the ALA Mid-Winter Conference in Denver, Colorado.
