ALMA INTEGRATED LIBRARY SYSTEM
A powerful, integrated library system (ILS) provides Florida’s public college and university libraries an array of automated tools that make it easier to manage library materials and streamline delivery of library services. Libraries use the Alma integrated platform from Ex Libris for:
- Materials acquisition and processing: ordering and processing books/items for addition to their collection.
- Metadata and inventory control: cataloging new materials and entering that information for use by other libraries, managing bibliographic data and records ("metadata") associated with each item in their collection, and keeping track of their entire library collection (inventory).
- Collection management: circulating books and other library materials, and using on-demand and system-generated statistical reports to manage the collection.
