EBSCO and Ex Libris
The SILS Discovery Working Group, the broader SILS Implementation Team, and Alliance staff have been working with EBSCO and Ex Libris to resolve concerns we have about the accessibility of EBSCO content via Primo. There are workarounds and less desirable approaches, but the core issue is that these two companies have not reached a data-sharing agreement.
The Orbis Cascade Alliance is actively investigating options and will make decisions that may move us away from EBSCO and Ex Libris products in order to better serve our faculty, students, and researchers.
