Collaborative Futures project update: Ex Libris Alma and Primo selected as next library services platform

We recently announced that the MacOdrum Library will be participating in the implementation of OCUL’s (Ontario Council of University Libraries’) Collaborative Futures project.

The vendor for the shared library services platform (LSP) was recently announced. The Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) is pleased to announce the selection of the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform and Ex Libris Primo® discovery and delivery solution, as the core platforms for its Collaborative Futures initiative.

The Ex Libris library services and discovery solution will enable participating libraries to work together in new ways, to share expertise and network level workflows, and to offer broader access to resources for students, faculty and staff.
