The University of Law to Adopt Ex Libris Alma, Primo, and Leganto to Advance Teaching Excellence and Successful Learning Outcomes

Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, is pleased to announce the University of Law has selected the Alma library services platform, Primo discovery and delivery system, and Leganto course reading list solution.

LONDON, UK, February 20, 2018 – Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, is pleased to announce that the University of Law has selected the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform, Primo® discovery and delivery system, and LegantoTM course reading list solution. The selection was made after the Ex Libris products received positive student feedback during demonstration sessions. Alma will replace the Ex Libris Voyager® integrated library system.

With today’s continuing increase in electronic resources, the library needed a platform for managing both electronic and print materials. In addition, the lack of a discovery tool available to students led to low engagement with the library and underuse of its collections.

Head of Libraries at The University of Law, Susan Oakes explained, “We are committed to providing our students with the best research experience and as much one-to-one time with our staff as possible.  Selecting Ex Libris solutions that allow us to streamline and automate our library processes across our multisite university helps us achieve these goals.”

Ofer Mosseri, corporate vice president and general manager of Ex Libris EMEA, said, “The decision by the University of Law to select Alma, Primo, and Leganto shows the value that our integrated solutions bring to the research and teaching and learning processes in academic institutions of all sizes, including those with a high degree of specialization.”
