Alma Sets and Jobs

Creating and working with sets and running jobs in Alma.

Introduction to Alma Sets

Sets are saved groups of records in Alma that can be used for:

  • Bulk changes or actions using jobs
  • Monitoring groups of items going through a process (a group of items all going through digitization, for instance)
  • Maintaining personal lists of records that you want quick access to (if you're a reference librarian, you can set up lists of favorite resources, or if you're in Acquisitions, you can keep a set of materials purchased for specific reasons)

There are two types of sets:

  • Logical sets are the dynamic results of a saved query in Alma
  • Itemized sets are static lists of records, where you individually add members to the set
