-"The University of Sunderland seeks to extend current library management functionality with the delivery of a Library Management solution. Existing core library services are based around a Library Management System which includes Alto circulation services, Prism library catalogue and a number of customised and integrated modules and enhancements. Current services fully integrate with third party services include:• EBSCO’s Discovery ERM product; • PTFS Europe’s Rebus:list product; • 3M self services; • Lorensberg’s Direct Mapping product; • CALM software • E Prints software. In tendering for a new system the library is aiming to maintain a high degree of current functionality,​ introduce new and innovative technologies,​ maximise efficiencies in work-flows, continue to work collaboratively within the wider library community including access to an integral bibliographic database, whilst ensuring rapid and seamless procurement of resources through a managed Electronic Data Interchange,​ enhancing the student’s learning experience with access to powerful single searching of library data and wider institutional resources, ensuring value for money."​ +

- +
-[[https://​www.sell2wales.gov.wales/​search/​show/​search_view.aspx?​ID=JUL260214|Announcement notice 20 July 2018]] +
- +
-The University intends to award a contract for up to three years for the upgrade and maintenance of its current library management system (LMS) to Ex Libris, a specialist in software for the library sector. This will upgrade from Ex Libris'​s Aleph, SFX, MetaLib and Verde products to their Alma product, thus reducing the need for multiple products. This system is owned, supplied and supported exclusively by Ex Libris. The current library management system, Aleph, is already integrated with Campus Solutions at UNNC and UNMC and a different system (with different technical architecture) would mean considerable additional development effort. Ex Libris are the only supplier who have an existing data centre in China and a proven support model for global campus operation. The implementation plan for the global solution shall commence in August 2018. +
- +
-The existing version of the system is several years old, meaning that the upgrade process will be overly complex and beyond the capability of the institution. As Ex Libris is the developer of the software, it is envisaged that this upgrade will be executed with minimal risk of technical failure and data and process migration for internal staff will be significantly reduced in a global environment. As alternate system would present significant financial, technical, quality and reputational risks for the University that could not be mitigated against. +
- +
-The Global reach is essential and the feasibility or ability to change is restricted by Suppliers who can promote the Global need and therefore when considering the relative benefit, the cost would outweigh the advantage that might accrue. Thus for reasons of timescale and staff capacity alongside core business activity, the only viable option is an upgrade through Ex Libris. +
- +
-From the [[https://​www.sell2wales.gov.wales/​search/​show/​search_view.aspx?​ID=DEC176617|invitation to tender]] 21st December 2016\\ +
-The University of Nottingham proposes to invest in a new scholarly information environment to improve the student and researcher library experience and to create more efficient resource management processes.It will deliver an improved return on the University'​s £5.5 annual investment in information resources and will contribute to the content and discovery element of an ambitious vision for Digital Learning.\\ +
-This will:\\ +
-- improve student satisfaction,​\\ +
-- Improve learning outcomes and academic success,​\\ +
-- better support researchers,​\\ +
-- facilitate a more agile and flexible response to academic needs,\\ +
-- maximise return on current investment in library materials and staff resource.\\ +
-\\ +
-The goals will be achieved by a new, more integrated, approach to the discovery and delivery of library curated materials which will better match resources to student and researcher needs. This will be a part of a wider modern integrated solution that will also bring efficiencies and significantly reduce the number of systems currently employed. This in turn will help to create better, more efficient staff workflows across the totality of print and electronic resources.\\ +
-It will also deliver better analytics to enable the library to more closely align library resources with course and researcher demands. Furthermore it will integrate more fully with university systems such as the VLE and finance.\\ +
-Such a solution will offer a stable, scalable, secure, supported and cost-effective learning environment across our 3 global campuses. +

 +From the [[https://​www.sell2wales.gov.wales/​search/​show/​search_view.aspx?​ID=DEC176617|invitation to tender]] 21st December 2016\\
 +The University of Nottingham proposes to invest in a new scholarly information environment to improve the student and researcher library experience and to create more efficient resource management processes.It will deliver an improved return on the University'​s £5.5 annual investment in information resources and will contribute to the content and discovery element of an ambitious vision for Digital Learning.\\
 +This will:\\
 +- improve student satisfaction,​\\
 +- Improve learning outcomes and academic success,\\
 +- better support researchers,​\\
 +- facilitate a more agile and flexible response to academic needs,\\
 +- maximise return on current investment in library materials and staff resource.\\
 +\\
 +The goals will be achieved by a new, more integrated, approach to the discovery and delivery of library curated materials which will better match resources to student and researcher needs. This will be a part of a wider modern integrated solution that will also bring efficiencies and significantly reduce the number of systems currently employed. This in turn will help to create better, more efficient staff workflows across the totality of print and electronic resources.\\
 +It will also deliver better analytics to enable the library to more closely align library resources with course and researcher demands. Furthermore it will integrate more fully with university systems such as the VLE and finance.\\
 +Such a solution will offer a stable, scalable, secure, supported and cost-effective learning environment across our 3 global campuses.

 "​Qualitative feedback from library users indicated that the time was right to fundamentally review the workflows in the library and to improve the student experience,​” said RGU Library Director Margaret Buchan. “Our ability to effectively manage the life cycle of electronic resources is currently hampered by the lack of flexible library analytics and an electronic resource management function. In addition, IT and library staff time is often spent carrying out hosting tasks and backing up, maintaining,​ and upgrading the library system, servers, and client applications.
