Linda Hall Library Selects Voyager

Smart Libraries Newsletter [May 2010]

by

While we don't often write about individual ILS sales, the selection of Voyager from Ex Libris by the Linda Hall Library of Science, Engineering and Technology stands out. This sale reinforces Ex Libris' ongoing development and support for this ILS product, which was acquired through its 2006 acquisition of Endeavor Information Systems. Although Aleph clearly stands as Ex Libris flagship ILS, the company has continued to support and enhance Voyager. With some of the most prestigious research libraries in the United States continuing to rely on Voyager, Ex Libris has strong business interests in maintaining its viability. Thirty-five out of the 124 ARL member libraries, including the Library of Congress, currently operate the Voyager ILS. The selection of Voyager by this prestigious research library seems to be a mark of confidence that product that will endure until Ex Libris completes its URM, which it has positioned as the eventual successor for both Aleph and Voyager.
