Japan's National Diet Library goes live with Aleph. Ex Libris announced that in early January, the National Diet Library—the national library of Japan—completed its transition from its legacy system to the Aleph integrated library system and switched to full production. The selection of the Aleph system followed an extensive process during which the NDL staff examined both local and international solutions and conducted an Aleph trial for eight months. The Aleph implementation project, which began in 2010, was one of the largest Aleph projects to date. For the first time, the various systems of NDL, including the former integrated library system, the Asian Language Materials catalog, and the ZASSHIKIJISAKUIN Japanese Periodicals Index, were merged into one system. In addition, the implementation had to accommodate the great size of the library collections (about 20 million bibliographic records and 40 million items); handle the Japanese language efficiently; support the unique workflows of the NDL; adapt to an advanced infrastructure; and integrate the system with technologies of other providers. Close collaboration with local system integrators was instrumental in accomplishing these tasks. [Full Announcement].
