The OASIS system saves librarians’ time with ordering, tracking and invoicing content — print, ebook and DVDs — in the subjects they need. The integration with Alexander Street on OASIS enables librarians to curate collections from a selection from more than 10,000 DVD titles that complement student learning and faculty research, across all the major discipline areas, as well as many areas where resources are scarce.
For libraries with the Alma™ management system, all orders in OASIS are transferred to Alma via an enhanced API that’s available at no additional cost. Benefits include:
- Order data insertion into Alma so staff and students can see what is on order
- Streamlined information flow from OASIS to Alma that eliminates slow FTP data transfer
- Improved staff productivity through time savings
- Data accuracy
The new integrations are the latest in a series of enrichments that enable the OASIS platform to simplify workflows and support faster and better collection development. Other recent advancements include access to premier publisher ebook platforms and value-add features such as a DDA MARC removal service, DDA add button, new title awards profile and collections support.
