    January Sneak Preview

    The features below are currently planned for the next release. However, some of these features may, for various reasons, not be included in this month's release, but rather in a future Alma release.


    • Library level patron notifications - It will be possible to set Alma to split aggregated letters by the library owner. For example, it will be possible to set Alma to send a separate Borrower Activity notification for each library where the patron is active.
    • Support for InnReach D2IR APIs - It will be possible to directly integrate Alma and Innreach using API based integration, without requiring the InnReach DCB component.
    • Automatic 'Will Supply' message - It will be possible to set Alma to automatically send a ‘Will Supply’ message for every lender request that is in process, i.e. the internal 'ship digitally/physically' request has been created for it.

    Resource Management

    Portfolio Loader Support KBART format - Alma Portfolio Loader will support using KBART format files for electronic resource management of electronic collection portfolios (in addition to the existing Alma Proprietary format).

    Digital Resource Management

    • Idea Exchange - Add Primo collection breadcrumbs in Alma viewer- End users will be able to navigate directly from the digital viewer to the Primo collection it belongs to, in one click.
    • Idea Exchange - Strict Download control for images Restricting download for digital files will be expanded to block right-click actions such as save-as on images, providing stricter prevention of content redistribution.
