Edinburgh Napier University has gone live with with the Ex Libris Alma system.

Ex Libris says Alma’s streamlined approach to library operations has enabled staff members at the university to transform their management of electronic resources and to manage their print and digital collections through a single unified system. In addition to integration with the Primo discovery and delivery solution, library managers saw the benefits to be gained from integrating their library system with HR, finance, and student record systems.
Chris Pinder, director of information services at Edinburgh Napier University, said: 'Our successful implementation of Alma builds on our recent deployment of Primo and, together, these two products help us play our part in supporting and realising important elements of the University’s strategic vision, which includes an excellent student experience, innovation, and, of course, efficiency.'
Christoph Frech, Ex Libris' regional sales director for north and west Europe, added: 'After going live on time and on budget, we are pleased that Edinburgh Napier is the first University in Scotland benefiting from Alma in their everyday operations. Edinburgh Napier joins a strong community of 13 libraries in the UK that are live with Alma and we hope that many other Universities in Scotland will follow this example of a successful migration to the next-generation Alma library solution.'
