    Implementation and migration

    When migrating, what is involved from the library side?

    For Rapido there is no need to upload holding for returnables/physical. 

    The information is taken from the system and a simple configuration process where the institution defines which resources are available for resource sharing/lending, based on easy criteria such as specifying the locations/material type/item policy. 

    For document delivery which is handled via the RapidILL, the workflow is to set OAI profiles in Alma that upload the holdings into RapidILL.

    See Rapido configuration prerequisites.
