The Belgian university is looking forward to modernizing operations and improving services for users with the cloud-based library management solution.
The University of Liége’s libraries have worked closely with Ex Libris for the past decade to deliver best-of-class solutions to the libraries’ staff members and users. Starting in 2006 with the implementation of the Aleph integrated library system and the SFX link-resolver, ULg later added Primo for discovery and delivery.
University Library Director Paul Thiron told us that they are proud to be the first French-speaking institution to move to Alma. “We have been following the progress of Alma very closely since its launch. We were very excited to discover how Alma’s workflows could comprehensively modernize the library’s administrative tasks by using automated business processes and shared data. We are very confident that the strong relationship we have built up with Ex Libris during a decade of collaboration will help us to move smoothly to the next generation service. Since Alma supports the entire suite of library operations for print, electronic, and digital resources, and includes integrated analytics functionalities, we see great opportunities to improve the Library collection development and our services for our users.”
