Purdue University Libraries has launched a new library management system, Alma to replace both Voyager and SFX. This includes functions associated with an integrated library system (ILS) and an electronic resources management system (ERM).
The benefits of Alma will include:
· Streamlined workflows resulting in efficient and effective processes.
· Elimination of silos between print and electronic resources
· Improved collection analysis through Alma Analytics and Oracle Business Intelligence
Purdue University Libraries is not only an early adopter of this new system; but it was a co-developer of Alma with Ex Libris, Princeton University, Boston College and University of Leuven (Belgium).
Many Purdue University Libraries faculty and staff have been involved in the planning and implementation of Alma over the last few years to ensure a successful launch.
Further information regarding Alma’s key features will be communicated in the coming weeks.
