Go VE is a self-switch process that guides you through the move from Primo to Primo VE. For more information, see Go VE: Overview.
We encourage you to follow this document throughout the move to help manage your progress and to make sure that you have access to all the information you need to complete each step.
Starting with Go VE
The availability of Go VE is dependent on your Alma instance and current Alma and Primo topologies. To determine the projected Go VE date for your institution and your topology in Primo VE, locate your current topology in Go VE: Self-Switch and Primo VE Topologies.
We encourage you to attend the upcoming Go VE Become an Expert Series webinars live. For details, see Ex Libris Education and Knowledge Webinars. If you cannot attend a live session, you can view the recorded sessions.
