The Systems Program provides support for Alliance-wide systems, including Ex Libris Alma management, Primo discovery, and other services. In close collaboration with the Systems Team, the program provides broad oversight and leadership for technologies used by Alliance programs, teams, and members (including investigation of new solutions, support for their implementation, and the ongoing assessment of existing systems against emerging needs).

The Systems Program is advised by the Systems Team.

The ELUNA enhancement membership proposal, approved by the Alliance Board of Directors in January 2015, has guided the Systems Team's and Program's support for the Ex Libris product enhancement processes.
