For all Alma Acquisitions Classes: 

  • We need to order/receive/create invoices for materials from one of these 4 locations when working in the Sandbox:
    • ITS at 625
    • Lamont
    • Schlesinger
    • Widener
      • It may be helpful to suggest students pick the location that is most similar in structure to their regular work location.  Think of the 3 kinds of POL Owner relationships:
        • 1 POL Owner : 1 library collection like Schlesinger;
        • many POL Owners : one library collection like Wid Judaica, Wid Middle East, Wid Modern Greek to the Widener collection; and
        • one consolidated order department : many library collections like ITS at 625 to WID, FAL, LAM, DIV, DES, etc.


  • We need to use the following vendor codes when teaching the One Time and continuous Ordering classes: they have been configured so that the PO’s will not end up in review. You should be able to use any vendor account within these vendor codes:
    • COUTTS
    • YANKEE
