The Joint Bank-Fund Library adopts Ex Libris Alma and Primo for resource management and discovery

Chicago, IL—April 12, 2016. Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, is pleased to announce that the Joint Bank-Fund Library, based in Washington DC, has selected the Ex Libris Alma resource management solution and the Primo discovery solution, replacing the Library's previous SirsiDynix library system.

The Library evaluated a number of different products before selecting Alma and Primo. A combination of the solutions' unified resources management and automated workflows made them the leading choice. With a shift in collections towards the electronic, the Library was in search of a better tool to manage both electronic and print resources. Alma and Primo's powerful capabilities will allow for the ability to report on usage, assist collection development, provide trend analysis and meet other future requirements.

Eric Hines, president of Ex Libris North America, remarked: "We are delighted that the Joint Bank-Fund Library has decided that Alma and Primo are the right solutions to drive its vast research operations. Alma and Primo will provide an integrated platform to manage their resources and expose them to the thousands of users who access their collections. I look forward to welcoming them to our North American user community."
