Serials Solutions Announces Intota Development Partners
Serials Solutions, a ProQuest business unit, announced the institutions that are collaborating with the company to develop Intota, a Software-as-a-Service solution that supports the entire resource lifecycle for libraries, including selection, acquisition, cataloging, discovery, and fulfillment regardless of resource type. The six development partners reflect a broad spectrum of institutions and academic research libraries; from public and private, community college and university, to single university and consortia systems. The company first announced Intota in January 2012.
The development partners that have committed to collaborating with Serials Solutions include:
- Ball State University
- Johnson County Community College
- Marist College
- Oklahoma State University
- The State University of New York at Geneseo
- University at Buffalo, The State University of New York
The development of Intota addresses the complex operations facing libraries today; from inefficient and redundant workflows, to costly and time-consuming system maintenance and lack of interoperability within the library and the institution at large. Serials Solutions says that Intota is unique from other solutions, both currently in the market and under development, and is an industry first because it leverages a linked data model, lowers total cost of ownership, addresses inherent interoperability, and is built entirely around workflows—not legacy platforms.
