The architecture of the LSP allows for a shared network zone as well as spaces for independent library or institution work. Alma, the staff side of the LSP, promises streamlined workflows and a high degree of integration with Primo, the discovery layer. The network zone allows for shared bibliographic records and significant potentials for resource sharing and more informed collection development. Due to the complex design of a network zone, it is more beneficial to have all participating colleges migrate as a cohort and implement at the same time. Staggering the process one college at a time would duplicate work, increase costs, and make the development of the network zone more complicated.
