New Library System Coming in June!

Bentley Library is pleased to announce a new integrated library system (ILS) coming this June. We are replacing our 16-year old online catalog and discovery platform with a new, cloud-based system from Ex Libris, called Alma/Primo. While Alma is the backbone of library operations, Primo is a cloud-based discovery service that’s designed to offer searching across the library’s catalog, subscription databases, and other digital collections through one interface.

Primo works seamlessly with Alma to offer you:

  • Discovery of library resources through an intuitive search environment
  • Serendipitous discovery via virtual browsing
  • A personalized search experience to match preferred disciplines
  • Responsive design optimized for mobile devices

We are expecting to go live on June 14, 2022.

More information will be shared as our go-live date approaches. You can keep up with the progress of this project by visiting the project management team’s Integrated Library System Migration Project SharePoint site.
