ProQuest to Acquire Ex Libris

ProQuest to Acquire Ex Libris. Press release. ProQuest. October 6, 2015.
ProQuest has signed an agreement to acquire Ex Libris. "The ProQuest acquisition of Ex Libris will align print and digital resources, pioneering discovery and library management solutions, and the deep content relationships that underlie our leading metadata repositories. Our current solutions will continue to be available, with ongoing enhancements and improvements. Perhaps most exciting, we will build new and innovative solutions that address customers’ evolving needs.

The products and services you know and rely upon will be enriched by the capabilities and skills of both companies. For example, imagine the value to libraries of having unified workflows for acquisition, cataloguing and circulation or a single system that deftly manages both print and electronic resources. More content choices will be available to libraries and users around the world, and we will better meet the needs of customers in their regions, in their languages and in their time zones.

ProQuest remains committed to the core principles of choice, openness and collaboration. Indeed, these are principles shared by Ex Libris.

We will continue to work with our incredible user communities for better outcomes. Both ProQuest and Ex Libris are deeply engaged with the library community and customers. Both companies benefit from active, collaborative and forward-thinking global customer bases and user groups. Learning from you, our customers and partners, has been – and will continue to be – extremely important to us. We will be looking to you for guidance on our future product development roadmaps as well as how we can improve our current services and solutions."
