Bukkyo University Selects Ex Libris Alma Library Services Platform
Bukkyo University library has selected the Ex Libris Alma library services platform which will be used in conjunction with the Ex Libris Summon discovery service.

“We expect that the Alma cloud platform will lead to a reduction in library system operations, including the maintenance and replacement of on-premise servers,” said Katsunori Iino, Senior Systems and e-Resources Librarian of Bukkyo University Library.
