    ARC 3.0
    * Create a separate incident with "Request for ARC installation".
    The ARC version must be upgraded at the same time as the Aleph version. Aleph 21 is only capable to work with ARC 3.0.
    ARC 3.0 is not released for self installation, therefore you will have to request the ARC installation from Ex Libris, that is provided free of charge including the migration of the reports to the higher version.

    * Use the following forms from Aleph Reporting Center > Version 3.0 >
    - Request for ARC installation
    - Request for a Copy of ARC Installation

    * You can find additional documents describing the ARC 3.0 version in the Knowledge Center at 'Release Notes > Aleph Reporting Center > Version 3.0'
