BIBSYS Consortium switches to Alma

Share this on social media:

BIBSYS, the Norwegian national provider of library services, has chosen the Alma library management service from Ex Libris. This, according to Ex Libris, replaces the OCLC system that the consortium signed up to in 2010.

BIBSYS will use Alma in conjunction with Ex Libris Primo to provide library services for a consortium of over 100 institutions that includes all Norwegian universities, colleges, the National Library and a number of research libraries.

This news follows the consortium's adoption of the Primo discovery and delivery solution earlier in 2013. Ex Libris said that BIBSYS chose Alma because it offered unified management of the full life-cycle for all types of resources, based on powerful and streamlined functionality.
