Unified Library Management System

This shared library services platform uses Alma an​d Primo to integrate the CSU libraries' various back office functionality into a single system, creating​ more streamlined workflows for managing print and electronic resources.

The system also saves the CSU close to one million dollars annually and provides extensive consortium functionality, including centralized e-resource management, collaborative metadata management, systemwide analytics, and resource-sharing, allowing the libraries to collaboratively manage their collections, eliminate duplicate work at each campus, and leverage local expertise for the benefit of the whole CSU.
