New Integrated Library System

UK Libraries is actively examining options for a next-generation integrated library platform to replace the current Voyager system.  Next-generation library platforms are designed to manage digital collections and to take advantage of advances in computer technology and architecture. 

Last fall, in partnership with other members of the State Assisted Academic Library Council of Kentucky (SAALCK), UK Libraries heard from representatives of Ex Libris about the merits of the ALMA and PRIMO platforms.  The same group will be meeting March 6 in Louisville to learn more about OCLC’s Worldshare system. 

Forums for UK Libraries faculty and staff will be scheduled as more information becomes available.
