Seattle, WA, October 11, 2013 - Langston University has selected Serials Solutions®, a ProQuest® business to help streamline and improve e-resource management and usage data assessment at its library. The addition of management services, 360 Counter and 360 Resource Manager, will simplify formerly complex tasks, empowering the library staff to focus on collection development.

"We chose Serials Solutions because we wanted to streamline the process of organizing our digital resources. Rather than collecting data manually for each product, we also wanted to access the usage data for all those resources in a simple, user friendly interface" commented Bettye Black, Director of Library Services.

A loyal Serials Solutions client with subscriptions to 360 Core and 360 Link since 2003, Langston University is part of a growing contingent of libraries that have looked to Serials Solutions as a trusted partner in helping to improve discovery and management of their library’s resources. The addition of Serials Solutions ERM and assessment services complements their 2011 decision to select the Summon service as their discovery solution.

Langston University, a diverse public university in Oklahoma, has been helping its students “Find the Lion buried within themselves” since 1897 when it was officially established. One way that the university is making good on that promise is by offering its students better discoverability of valuable content from the library. Serials Solutions empowers the library staff to make more informed collection development decisions providing a better research experience at Langston University.
