Southern Cross University opts for Ex Libris Esploro research services solution
- 14 Sep 2018

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that Australia's Southern Cross University will be joining the Ex Libris Esploro early adopter program. The Esploro research services solution will facilitate the capture, management, and dissemination of the university's research output and data across all disciplines and consolidate information about researchers, their publications, and their data. The seamless integration of the Esploro service with both the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform and Ex Libris Primo® discovery and delivery solution, along with the Esploro service's interoperability with other academic systems, will help the university increase the efficiency of its library staff, research administrators, and scholars.

Southern Cross University sought a platform that would be a good match for the Australian academic environment and their institution, both now and in the future. By enabling the University to automatically harvest research data that is currently entered manually, the Esploro service will save time for the staff and provide more accurate metadata. As a result, research assets will be more easily discoverable. Esploro will also help researchers showcase their achievements to prospective research partners, funders, and the scholarly community, contributing to greater recognition of research activity at the University.

As a participant in the Esploro early adopter program, Southern Cross will be closely involved in providing product feedback and shaping the Esploro solution. The first release will be available to early adopters in 2019.

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that the University of Leeds has selected the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform and Ex Libris Primo® discovery and delivery solution to improve efficiency, streamline workflows, and support decision-making.

Alma and Primo both offer excellent reporting functionality that directly addresses the strategic objective of managing collections more efficiently and will improve decision-making.

SAE Institute uses OCLC WorldShare Management Services to unite 51 campuses in 25 countries on one library services platform
- 05 Sep 2018

Non-profit global library cooperative OCLC has announced that SAE Institute is using OCLC's WorldShare Management Services to bring together its 51 campuses in 25 countries on the same library services platform so students and staff can collaborate and access the resources they need.

WorldShare Management Services (WMS) provides all the applications needed to manage a library, including acquisitions, circulation, resource sharing, metadata and license management, and a discovery service for library users. It also includes a range of reports that help libraries better understand their activities and track key metrics over time.

As part of the OCLC library cooperative and with WorldCat as its foundation, WMS enables libraries to draw on the collaborative data and work of libraries worldwide for more efficient workflows. WMS also provides libraries with the unique opportunity to share innovation, applications, infrastructure, vision and success in serving their users.

With campuses in 25 countries, SAE was looking for a library services solution that would effectively unlock its siloed information and human resources around the world. Before implementing WMS, many SAE libraries were using different systems and had no way to collaborate or share resources. Students could not view or access resources from other regions.

Harvard Library goes live with Ex Libris Alma and Leganto solution
- 04 Sep 2018

Ex Libris® Group, a ProQuest company, has announced that Harvard Library has gone live with the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform and the Leganto course resource list solution. The Alma platform will support new workflows and processes that make sure that Harvard Library's patrons always receive the service they need, while Leganto resource lists will be central to Harvard Library's strategy of providing comprehensive support for courses throughout the university.

Harvard Library is always looking for ways to enhance services for users as well as to improve the teaching and learning experience for faculty and students. The unified Alma resource management capabilities, advanced workflows, robust infrastructure, and cloud-based platform, combined with the Leganto solution's faculty empowerment features, advanced analytics, and integration with copyright clearance services, will assist Harvard Library in providing the best services to its community of users.

The Alma implementation helps Harvard achieve its goal of actively managing print and online collections within a single framework throughout the library. As a result, users benefit from faster and more complete discovery of Harvard's online resources, and the library gains an agile system that can handle current and future technologies to support all of Harvard's users.

The Leganto resource list solution enables Harvard Library to take a more active role in teaching and learning and to best serve Harvard's academic goals. Through the Leganto service, Harvard can now analyse data on the usage of course resources and make the analyses available to the faculty. The library can also immediately see what resources will be needed for new and current courses, thus contributing to Harvard Library's program of strong course support.
