Libraries in the University of North Carolina system have chosen Alma as a central solution for resource sharing and affordability initiatives.  

As part of its transition to Ex Libris library platforms, UNC will implement:

  • Alma and Primo 
  • Leganto, Ex Libris’ course resource management system 
  • Library Mobile, Ex Libris’ integrated mobile library app and  
  • Rapido, Ex Libris’ interlibrary loan system 

“After a competitive RFP process, Ex Libris Alma & Primo were chosen to offer the UNC System libraries the greatest opportunity for resource and knowledge sharing,” says Sarah Falls, University Librarian at UNC School of the Arts and Chair of UNC University Library Advisory Council. “While we have immediate needs that will be served, we anticipate that implementation will greatly enhance services for students and faculty with products such as Rapido, Leganto and Library Mobile.”  


“Over time, Alma will help us build upon our shared commitments to system wide resource sharing, the collective research environment, textbook affordability and collections efficiency. We are grateful to the UNC System Office, Division of Academic Affairs, whose ongoing support made this project possible.” 


By 2027, twelve of the seventeen UNC campuses will implement this innovative suite, allowing the remaining schools more time to consider possible timelines for transition.
