ProQuest is sharing its technical expertise with Cornell University to create a book selection system that will interest libraries everywhere.

As the options available for purchasing books continues to grow, it’s becoming more challenging for librarians to make informed collection decisions efficiently.

In response, a vendor-library partnership was formed to create a custom solution to improve the selection experience at Cornell University Library.

This dynamic book-selection system will gather book metadata from multiple sources into a single streamlined interface to enable efficient selection and acquisitions workflows, enhancing the functionality of ProQuest’s Online Acquisitions and Selection Information System (OASIS).

OASIS will be used by Cornell University Library as its primary source for securing English-language print books from North America, the UK and other regions of the world.
