This paper discusses the implementation of Alma by Ex Libris at the RMIT University Library in Melbourne, Australia. Alma is a cloud-based library services platform that rewrites the design of client-based library management systems, which until recently have been prevalent in technical services. Moving into the cloud has presented challenges, new opportunities for innovation and a vision for the future of library data. This paper considers these challenges and innovations and their impact on workflows and staff skill sets now and in the future.
