Ex Libris, part of Clarivate, is pleased to announce that the University of Wyoming (UW), a leading public research university in the United States, recently chose the Ex Libris Higher Education platform for its cloud-based library solutions of the Alma library management system, Primo discovery, Library Mobile app, and Leganto for course resources. This decision is part of the university’s effort to enhance the accessibility and efficiency of their library services, meet the evolving needs of its users, and maintain its status as a leading research institution.
Alma, a cloud-based library services platform, will serve as the backbone of UW’s library operations. It is designed to streamline workflows, simplify resource management, and provide seamless access to library materials. Alma’s flexible architecture allows for easy customization and integration with third-party systems, making it an ideal solution for a large, research-focused institution like UW.
Primo, a discovery and delivery platform, will provide users with a single interface for searching and accessing library resources. Primo’s intuitive search interface and relevance ranking algorithms ensure that users can quickly find the materials they need, regardless of format or location.
“The new system will have enhanced discoverability of our collections, is mobile friendly and will give better and more customized search results. We’re excited to share it with the campus community.”
Deborah McCarthy, Assistant Dean of Resource Discovery & Management
One of the key benefits of using Ex Libris products is the network of libraries and librarians working together for every one’s benefit. By joining this community, the University of Wyoming will have access to a wealth of resources, experiences and expertise that will help them optimize their library systems and stay up-to-date with the latest trends and best practices.
“We are excited to have seamless, user-friendly integration between the Library Management System and the discovery system, and we appreciate the network of other Alma libraries who form a robust community of support and development.” –
Paula Martin, Assistant Dean of User Services
Library Mobile makes it easy for libraries to deliver exceptional digital library experiences on-the-go through a streamlined admin interface, seamless integrations and unlimited free push notifications.
Leganto, a course reading management system, will enable instructors to create and manage course reading lists more efficiently. They can easily link to library resources through Alma and Primo, and upload other materials or link to non-library resources.
