Ex Libris, part of Clarivate, is excited to announce that the Lithuanian Academic Electronic Library Consortium (eLABa) has selected Ex Libris Alma and Primo to implement at their dozens of libraries nationwide.
After years of partnership with Ex Libris, the eLABa consortium has chosen to transition from their Ex Libris Aleph and SFX products to the unified Alma library services platform. With over 40 libraries situated across Lithuania, the implementation of Alma will empower the libraries to operate with a shared catalog and enjoy the benefits of centralized content and configuration management, while still respecting the individuality and needs of each independent institution.
“We are excited at the prospect of strengthening our existing relationship with the Lithuanian library community and the eLABa consortium,” says Asaf Kline, Vice President, Product Management at Ex Libris. “The move to Alma, a unified library management system, will enable us to provide the Lithuanian community with extensive benefits both in terms of process and system efficiency, as well as improved librarian and patron experiences starting in Alma through the patron-facing Primo.”
Alma, library management system, a cloud-based library services platform, is built and continues to be developed to address both individual institutions and large consortia and networks operating with complex and unique needs and requirements.
eLABa consortium has chosen to extend their use of Primo library discovery service, their existing discovery interface, to maintain their patron-facing services, ensuring students and users continue to enjoy a seamless search and browse experience. With Primo’s intuitive search interface and relevance ranking algorithms, eLABa can ensure that users can quickly find the materials they need, regardless of format or location.
