Powerful support for your collection strategy

OASIS is an online ordering platform used by academic librarians responsible for selecting and acquiring content for use by patrons. OASIS streamlines workflows by resolving common pain points for all academic libraries. Subject specialists use OASIS to search and select from a vast database of print and electronic books and streaming video in one system. Acquisition librarians use OASIS to review the alternate formats, licensing and platform options before placing orders. Through EDI and APIs, information in OASIS can flow electronically into the
Ex Libris Higher-Ed cloud platform and other systems.

In addition, ProQuest provides services to ease a librarian’s workload:

  • Shelf-Ready Services send print books to the library with protective covers, identification markers and theft prevention devices applied so titles are ready for circulation.
  • Various levels of cataloging to suit a library’s specific needs, including WorldCat Collection Manager, and customized MARCs.
