Ex Libris, integrated library system, part of Clarivate, is excited to announce that MacEwan University has chosen to implement a holistic suite of Ex Libris products – Alma, Primo, Leganto-list management system and Rapido-library resource sharing, in place of multiple disparate services and solutions.
With this holistic suite of products, MacEwan will benefit from seamless workflows and unified resource management across all data types – physical, electronic and digital – from the point of acquisition through discovery through Alma, library management system and Primo, library discovery service. Further, the organic integration of Leganto and Rapido provides patrons with convenient access to library resources via reading lists and intuitive resource sharing services at their fingertips. Combined, these create a single, streamlined library experience for MacEwan students and patrons, while boosting librarians’ efficiency and productivity.
“We are beyond thrilled to set off on this exciting journey of implementing our next library services platform with Ex Libris!” says Karen Keiller, Dean, Library. “It’s been a year-long process, filled with great discussions with our wonderful library staff, other libraries, and the marketplace. We’re moving away from an older system hosted by another university, with a patchwork of solutions added on. By providing our students and faculty with an elegant discovery layer, access to materials beyond our walls, and a way to support MacEwan University’s Strategic Vision of Teaching Greatness, we’re setting our students up for success!”
MacEwan University of Alberta, Canada is part of the NEOS Library Consortium and their first member to choose to transition to a holistic suite of next generation library solutions. “We look forward to working closely with our colleagues at MacEwan to ensure they have a smooth transition to our unified experience of library solutions, and hope to grow our collaboration with them and other NEOS member libraries,” says Asaf Kline, Vice President, Product Management at Ex Libris.
