UOW Library adopts Ex Libris' solutions to improve UX

University of Wollongong (UOW) Library is set to adopt Ex Libris’ digital services in a bid to improve virtual browsing, resource accessibility, and library and faculty workflows.

Ex Libris will provide its Alma library services platform, Primo discovery and delivery solution, and Leganto course reading list tool, according to the supplier. 

It comes as part of UOW’s Future-Ready Library strategy, which aims to help staff and students find, use and create content more easily; optimise digitally enabled learning and service environments; and maximise research visibility.

Previously, the library had “a number of fragmented systems that were time-consuming to manage and inefficient to operate on a daily basis”, Ex Libris said. 

The new solution is expected to “empower the staff to further develop digital collections and services”, include an enterprise resource management system and provide analytics capabilities, Ex Libris explained.  

“In an age where collections and their management are becoming more complex, advanced integration and analytic functions will enhance evaluation and assessment, thus improving the quality of decision-making and budget optimisation,” UOW Library Services Director Margie Janetti said.
