Former member libraries of UNILINC library network use Ex Libris' Alma and Primo to automate library services
- 04 Dec 2017

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that 17 of the 20 libraries that were previously members of the UNILINC library network have chosen to work directly with Ex Libris as they continue to use the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform and Primo® discovery and delivery solution.

The UNILINC cooperative ceased its operations on October 31, 2017. Most of the libraries that were members will continue working with both Alma and Primo to streamline library workflows, expand the discovery of library resources, and optimise library services with the assistance of advanced analytics. The active community of Ex Libris users throughout Australia and New Zealand and the opportunity to easily share ideas and best practices were important factors in the libraries' decision to continue with the Ex Libris solutions.

Alma and Primo enable these libraries to be more self-sufficient, to automate more workflows, and to focus on more critical tasks. Using analytics based on Oracle Business Intelligence, the libraries are able to generate reports and customise dashboards for the range of library activities. Ex Libris will work hand in hand with the libraries to facilitate their use of the Ex Libris solutions.

Drexel University selects cloud-based Ex Libris Alma library services platform
- 29 Nov 2017

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that Drexel University has selected the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform to integrate with the university's Summon® discovery and delivery service. The Alma-Summon combination will improve the discovery of and access to scholarly resources needed for learning, teaching, and research. As a single system, Alma will streamline procedures for managing the Libraries' acquired and licensed electronic and print resources, help the Libraries raise staff productivity significantly, improve workflows, and eliminate data silos. The Alma platform replaces the Innovative Interfaces Millennium integrated library system (ILS), which Drexel has used since 1998.

With Alma, the University anticipates automating various library functions that are critical for efficiently managing acquisitions, the licensing of electronic information resources and databases, metadata descriptions, discovery, circulation, reserves, and resource-sharing services. These activities increasingly involve multiple formats beyond print books and journals, audio recordings, and visual images, and require future capacity for managing research data, something Alma was designed to handle.

When evaluating products that met Drexel's main selection requirements, the University noted Alma's core functionality, interoperability, and easy integration with Summon. Drexel sought a visionary, action-oriented, collaborative, and technologically innovative vendor. As Drexel and Ex Libris became better acquainted, the University realized that Ex Libris understood the Drexel vision and was excited to enable it.

Swiss National Library selects Ex Libris Alma and Primo
- 16 Nov 2017

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that the Swiss National Library (NL) has selected the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform and Ex Libris Primo discovery and delivery solution.

The NL decided to replace its legacy integrated library system, VTLS Virtua, with an up-to-date management platform and a publicly accessible search system. Following a competitive, open tender process, the NL opted for the Alma and Primo solutions to provide next-generation library services.

During the tender process, the NL recognized that the combination of Alma and Primo offers a complete set of features that support the entire functioning of the library across all departments and provides integrated management of print and electronic resources, including workflows for voluntary deposit, gifts, and unsolicited items.

Additional key factors in the decision were the solution's openness to integration, support for the official languages of Switzerland (German, French, and Italian), and the customisability of Primo for individual user needs.
