The Western community can look forward to enhanced access to digital and print collections with Western's participation in the Collaborative Futures initiative. Western and 12 other Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) schools have partnered to acquire Ex Libris' Alma® library services platform and Ex Libris' Primo® discovery and delivery solution. Ex Libris is a world leader in providing cloud-based solutions to academic institutions. Their suite of next generation library services is designed for the future of resource discovery and collection accessibility.

Watch for more details and updates in the coming months. Given the significant scope of this project, the implementation schedule and plan is still to be worked out. Once started, we anticipate full implementation will take over a year to complete. We'll share major milestones along the way.
