    Question

    How can a database be added to Alma?

    Answer

    1. Go to Alma > Resource Management > Create a Local Collection
    2. Fill in Title and Institution-Specific Information
    3. Select Collection type = Database and None for Service type
    4. Save
    5. Under the Additional tab, add the Collection URL to the 'Level URL' field. 

    Both the 'Level URL' and the 'Additional descriptive information' fields are required for the electronic collection to be active and published to Primo. The MARC bibliographic record selected for the latter field appears in the discovery (Primo) search results. This field is required for publishing to Primo.
