Now more than ever, libraries are facing the challenges of escalating user expectations, a diverse and rapidly expanding information universe, and the demand for increased operational efficiencies. To meet these challenges, libraries require an infrastructure that enables them to continue offering their services in a constantly evolving environment.

Ex Libris offers two proven integrated library systems—ALEPH and Voyager-—that provide the information infrastructure today’s libraries need. Ex Libris is committed to the ongoing development, enhancement, and support of these two products—ensuring that academic, research, and national libraries continue to offer staff and patrons with the solutions they need to meet their ever-evolving needs.
With over 20 years of experience and 3,500 deployments across the globe, Ex Libris ILS solutions address the needs of libraries of all types and sizes, ranging from smaller libraries, operating with limited resources, to the largest libraries and consortia with millions of items and a high-volume of transactions.
