Ex Libris (UK) Ltd. announced at the Library + information Show 2005 that Nottingham Trent University selected the ALEPH 500™ Integrated Library System to replace the universitys existing Geac ADVANCE system. Nottingham Trent University has chosen to enhance its ALEPH 500 system with the ADAM (ALEPH Digital Asset Management) Module and ARC (ALEPH Reporting Center). The university has also selected the Verde e-Resource Management system to complement their existing SFX® and MetaLib® solutions.
Sue McKnight, Director of Libraries and Knowledge Resources at Nottingham Trent University, said: We are delighted to be strengthening our partnership with Ex Libris at this exciting time for library developments here at the university. Choosing ALEPH to integrate with our existing SFX and MetaLib services will help us realise our ambitious plans to enhance the learning, teaching, and research experience of students and staff.
I am particularly pleased that Nottingham Trent University has again selected Ex Libris solutions following their successful implementation of SFX and MetaLib last year, said Julie Booth, Managing Director, Ex Libris (UK) Ltd. We now look forward to working with the university to implement ALEPH 500 and Verde, and to further build our already strong partnership. continued Julie.
