Ex Libris solutions enable researchers at the museum to access its rich collection of local and electronic resources

Paris, France – March 24, 2011. Ex Libris Group is pleased to announce that the Aleph® integrated library system and the Primo® discovery and delivery solution have gone live at the musée du quai Branly. Replacing the museum’s Ever Loris system, Aleph was chosen to provide an open library-management solution that is robust and powerful, to meet the museum’s long-term needs. Primo, which is fully integrated into the museum’s institutional portal, offers researchers a single point of discovery through which they can find and access the museum’s library resources—electronic, digital, and print.

A major factor in the selection of Ex Libris products was the importance that the museum attributes to close collaboration with the chosen vendor. “Before making a decision, we carried out an intensive evaluation of local and international vendors,” commented Bertrand Lewden, head of information systems at the Media Library. “The proposal from Ex Libris offered the most stable and efficient solution, together with a local team of experts that we could rely on both during and after the implementation phase. The Ex Libris staff members whom we are working with are consistently responsive and enthusiastic in meeting our unique requirements.”

“The success of this project lies in the adherence to a tight timetable and the seamless integration of Ex Libris systems with the museum’s technical environment, especially our Web site,” remarked Anne Faure, deputy director of the heritage and collections department. “The Ex Libris team was meticulous in its attention to detail and made every effort to meet our needs. Now that the project is almost finished, we are looking forward to exploring all the systems’ functionalities.”

Frédéric Lefevre, manager of Ex Libris France, commented: “We are delighted that the musée du quai Branly has selected our Aleph and Primo solutions to build its new library system. This decision reaffirms the growing interest in Ex Libris solutions by museums around the world, a trend that we have observed for several years. We are looking forward to collaborating as closely with the museum community as we do with academic, national, and research libraries.”
