New Library Services Platform

Carnegie Mellon University is the thousandth institution to select the Ex Libris Alma® cloud-based library services platform. Alma will be replacing the SirsiDynix Symphony® integrated library system.

Alma was selected primarily for its ease of use, its compatibility with other systems, and the flexibility of its analytics and reporting options. Through its user-friendly interface and integration with the university’s financial systems, Alma will greatly improve workflow efficiencies in account creation, billing, and other areas.
