The library’s long-awaited transition to the cloud will increase efficiencies and improve the user experience

Germany’s largest universal and research library, the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (Bavarian State Library, or BSB), is making the transition to the cloud-based Ex Libris Alma library management system platform after almost 20 years of providing library services through an increasingly complex and limited local system.

One of Europe’s most renowned universal libraries, the BSB will be using Alma to manage print, electronic, and digital materials in a single interface. As a cloud-based solution, Alma services will help the BSB standardize its workflows, provide a better user experience, achieve significant gains in efficiency, and save costs in the short and long term.
