UNC Charlotte joins Ex Libris Rapido early adopter program -

Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, has announced that the University of North Carolina Charlotte (UNC Charlotte) has joined the early adopter program of the Ex Libris Rapido™ resource sharing solution.

As a founding member of the Rapido early adopter program, UNC Charlotte’s J. Murrey Atkins Library will help shape the way in which the Rapido solution evolves and interoperates with the library ecosystem. Through its participation in the program, the university will gain an even greater understanding of how to maximise its investments in those systems.

A top priority for Atkins Library is to make the discovery and attainment of resources easier and more transparent for students, staff, and faculty. The modern, cloud-based Rapido solution will achieve the goal by delivering a patron-focused experience, empowering patrons to choose where they will order the resources from—according to availability and delivery time—and to track the requested resources’ delivery. Regardless of whether a patron is requesting an article, the electronic version of a book chapter, or the loan of a physical item, the terms of use and availability will be clear. Knowing the options means that users will make more informed decisions when they request items.

Atkins Library is focused on customer service; the Interlibrary Loan unit has a reputation on campus for providing fast, efficient delivery of interlibrary loan materials. Along with the introduction of the Rapido system, the library is moving many of its monographs and journals to an offsite storage facility. It may need to shift back and forth between online and hybrid services due to COVID-19 pandemic, the library will rely on Rapido to make the adjustment easier on patrons.

The first release of the Rapido resource sharing solution will be available to early adopters in early 2021.
