Council of University Librarians selected Ex Libris as the UC's first-ever integrated library system
January 6, 2020

On Jan. 6, 2020, the UC Libraries announced that they have signed a contract with Ex Libris for UC’s first-ever systemwide integrated library system (SILS).

This positions the UC Libraries and the California Digital Library for unprecedented integration of our catalogs, which will make access and retrieval of the holdings of all 10 campuses and the regional library facilities dramatically easier for all of our users.

This move will also result in significant savings for the UC Libraries, in terms of every campus not having to have its own separate catalog, which will allow us to spend more UCR Library staff time in creating, maintaining and cleaning up our catalog records to ensure their enhanced accuracy and discoverability.

For more details, please review this letter from the UC Council of University Librarians.
