Nine universities are participating in the company's early adaptor program for its Alma library management service.
Library management solutions developer Ex Libris Ltd. has sold its Alma library service to nine European institutions for $3 million, as part of the company's early adaptor program. They include the University of York, Lancaster University, the University of East London, and Plymouth University in the UK, and the Free University of Bozen/Bolzano in Italy.
Over 60 institutions worldwide have promised to adopt the Alma solution, and four institutions are collaborating with Ex Libris to develop it: Boston College, the Princeton University Library and Purdue University Libraries in the US, and Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in the Netherlands.
Ex Libris Europe VP Marc Daubach said, "We are very proud to welcome this significant number of prestigious European institutions to the Alma early adopter program. This powerful endorsement of Alma ahead of its launch in 2012 reflects the strength with which our strategy resonates among academic and research libraries in Europe and around the world."
