Singapore Singapore Management University adopts Ex Libris Alma and Primo - 26 Aug 2015

Library automation services provider Ex Libris Group has announced Singapore Management University (SMU) has gone live with the Ex Libris Alma library management service and Primo discovery and delivery solution. Alma and Primo will replace the Innovative Millennium integrated library system and EBSCO Discovery Service.

The SMU library sought a system that would efficiently manage print and electronic resources, eliminate functional silos, enable staff to create automated workflows, and provide robust analytic tools that would help the staff maximise the potential of the library's collections. In addition, the library wanted a truly cloud-based SaaS platform that could reduce the total cost of ownership of the physical and technical infrastructure. SMU found that Alma delivers exactly what the library requires: a unified management system for electronic, print, and digital resources, along with the Alma Analytics reporting capabilities— all provided as a seamless, cloud-based service.

SMU joins the Singapore Institute of Management and Singapore University of Technology and Design in adopting Alma and Primo for library management and discovery.
