Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, is pleased to announce that Tsinghua University in Beijing has chosen the Ex Libris Alma® library management service to replace the university’s Innovative Millennium integrated library system. Tsinghua University was ranked as the top university in China by QS World University Rankings®.
Tsinghua chose Alma to manage the entire life cycle of library resources, including physical, electronic, and digital collections, helping the library streamline workflows and reduce the cost of maintaining numerous distributed systems. As a longstanding Ex Libris Primo® customer, Tsinghua will benefit from a truly integrated library management, discovery, and delivery system.
Professor Jingkang Deng, library director at Tsinghua University, explained, “With Alma, we hope to optimize the library workflow, increase efficiency, and improve the process for making library management and collection development decisions. In light of our successful past collaboration with Ex Libris, we look forward to work with the company to optimally localize Alma as the next-generation library service platform for the Chinese market.”
Ziv BenZvi, vice president of Ex Libris Asia Pacific, noted, “We are excited that the prestigious Tsinghua University, with which we have enjoyed such fruitful collaboration, has opted for the Alma platform, and we welcome the university to the rapidly expanding Alma community in China.”
