Shared ILS implementation
The Orbis Cascade Alliance is implementing a new library management service to be shared by all 37 members of the consortium.† Following an extensive RFP process, in July 2012 the Council of library directors decided in to enter into a contract with Ex Libris for Alma (selection, acquisition, metadata management, digitization, and fulfillment) and Primo (discovery).
The implementation is proceeding in four cohorts. The first cohort of six Alliance institutions went live on Alma and Primo in June 2013.
Both during and after the implementation, the Alliance and Ex Libris are working together in the Center of Excellence partnership.
