Why Alma
• LIBIS is service provider for libraries, archives and
musea. For libraries we operate 3 networks
– LIBISnet (KU Leuven, Colleges, National Bank of Belgium, …)
– PBS (public library network of province Vlaams-Brabant)
– OpenVlacc (central catalogue for Flanders)
• Experience with library software
• => LIBIS became Alma development partner
• To consolidate and streamline workflows and the
backoffice softwares.
