Chicago, Illinois — June 24, 2018
New Hampshire’s flagship public research institution looks forward to streamlining library workflows and enriching the discovery experience
Chicago, Illinois—June 24, 2018. Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, is pleased to announce that the University of New Hampshire (UNH) has chosen the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform and Ex Libris Primo® discovery and delivery solution. The UNH Library is the 11th member of the Boston Library Consortium to adopt the Alma and Primo solutions.
The UNH Library’s vision aligns with the Ex Libris commitment to providing cloud-based solutions for higher education. Ex Libris shares the UNH Library’s interest in encouraging research that contributes to the greater good.
The Ex Libris library services platform is currently, in our estimation, the industry standard.
The full-featured Alma capabilities and continual rapid pace of the product’s development were among the key factors in UNH’s decision to adopt this solution.
With the combination of the Alma platform and the Primo solution, the university will benefit from modern, unified library management functionality and user-friendly discovery service. In an era of data-driven decision-making and the need to demonstrate a library’s value to its institution, the UNH Library anticipates that the analytics and reporting options will show the benefits of a significantly enhanced user experience.
“As a medium-sized research library with a fairly lean staff, we must keep the duplication of work to a minimum. We see many ways in which the Ex Libris solutions will enable us to streamline our processes and work more efficiently,” commented Kimberly Sweetman, UNH’s associate dean of the University Library.
“Ex Libris is a company with a long history of delivering quality technology infrastructure to academic libraries,” commented Tara Lynn Fulton, Dean of the University Library. “Its recent integration with ProQuest has made the melding of best-of-breed products possible, as well as creating synergies between some of the leading minds in the industry to develop enhancements and new products. The Ex Libris library services platform is currently, in our estimation, the industry standard.”
Eric Hines, president of Ex Libris North America, commented, “Ex Libris extends a warm welcome to the University of New Hampshire. As a member of the Boston Library Consortium, UNH can look forward to collaborating with the large percentage of member libraries that use the Alma platform and Primo discovery solution. In addition, the UNH Library will have an opportunity to become an active participant in the dynamic Ex Libris Users of North America (ELUNA) community.”
