Press release from: Ex Libris

All Emory’s new and current Ex Libris solutions will be managed in the Ex Libris TotalCare environment

Chicago, IL—April 5, 2011. Ex Libris® Group, a world leader in the provision of library automation technology, is pleased to announce that Emory University Libraries has selected the Aleph® integrated library system, replacing its SirsiDynix Unicorn system. At the same time, the Emory Libraries are moving their Ex Libris solutions, including their Primo® discovery and delivery solution, MetaLib® metasearch solution, and SFX® OpenURL link resolver, to the TotalCare cloud environment, and are complementing their suite of Ex Libris cloud-based solutions with the addition of the Primo Central Index of scholarly content and the bX article recommender.

“As long-term partners with Ex Libris, we chose the cloud-based option for the Aleph and Primo solutions to ensure the robust management of our diverse library collections and operations,” noted Richard Luce, vice provost and director of the Emory libraries. “The combination of Aleph and Primo on a cloud-based platform with the addition of the vast Primo Central Index and bX service will enable us to offer our users a complete discovery solution. In addition, the Ex Libris road map aiming toward a unified resource management resonates deeply with our strategic direction.”

“We welcome the Emory libraries’ decision to select Aleph and applaud its vision in choosing to move all its library operations to the TotalCare cloud environment,” commented Mark Triest, president of Ex Libris North America. “Emory is making a bold statement about cloud-based services in today’s library space. By stepping up to prepare its operations for the Ex Libris Alma next-generation library management service, Emory is demonstrating its continuing leadership in the world of academic libraries.”
