London, UK—November 30, 2021. Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, is pleased to announce that the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE), one of Europe's leading business schools, has chosen the Ex Libris Esploro current research information management system (CRIS) to increase research impact, make SSE's research publications more accessible, and render scholarly communication more efficient.
Founded in 1909, the Stockholm School of Economics provides specialized education in business practices and theories and maintains close relationships with local and global business communities. SSE conducts internationally recognized research in economics, finance, business administration, and related disciplines. Showcasing research innovation, facilitating collaboration, and supporting future partnerships are key to the SSE research strategy.
The school will use the Esploro solution along with the Ex Libris Alma library services platform and Ex Libris Research Professional funding solution. Esploro data will serve to enrich other institutional systems, and the automation of data entry will expedite research administration and processes such as national assessment exercises.
"Research at the Stockholm School of Economics is broad and innovative," commented Miriam Nauri, SSE Library Director. "Our scholars create new knowledge that impacts the research community and society. With Esploro, we will be better positioned to showcase the richness of scholarship at SSE, support researchers, and seamlessly feed metadata into the SwePub national research database. The tight integration with the Alma service platform will help us deliver efficient data management workflows to improve quality and reduce workload for all research stakeholders."
Shlomi Kringel, Ex Libris corporate vice president of learning and research solutions, added, "We are delighted to welcome the Stockholm School of Economics, the first Esploro customer in Sweden, to the global Esploro community. Our recent market survey reveals that researchers' expectations from libraries and research offices have grown over the COVID-19 period. With the Esploro solution, the library and research office will be better able to scale up their support for researchers, reduce administrative burdens, and demonstrate the impact of the institution's research."
