January 19, 2011 – Ex Libris Alma, the next-generation library management solution by ex Libris Group, has been released.

We found this interesting piece of news on EContent Magazine in their article, “Ex Libris Announces Alma.” Alma supports a range of library operations — selection, acquisition, metadata management, digitization, and fulfillment — for all library materials, regardless of their format or location. This newest release also aids libraries by consolidating, optimizing, and extending library workflows. By consolidating the disparate systems used by today’s libraries to manage print, electronic, and digital resources, Alma’s cloud infrastructure can help libraries improve their operational efficiency through data sharing and collaboration.

It is important to choose the right professional to manage your data and digital resources. Choose one with standards, literally. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
