This meant that some areas of our operations such as the management of electronic information resources were not as co-ordinated they could be, which was limiting our ability to improve the integrated delivery of resources to our users.” \\ 
-“A library management system that readily enables our users to discover and make optimal use of both subscribed and Open Access content is essential to improving our users’ research experience,​” Reynolds continued. “Also very important is that it has to help the library’s processes. Having carefully examined our options for some time, we chose Alma for its proven ability to help us to achieve those goals. Since it is a cloud-based solution it will reduce local resource requirements and make upgrades easier. We also anticipate being able to provide enhanced access for library users to the full range of library resources, improved and updated workflows for library staff and better interoperability with other library and university systems.”

-Original [[https://​www.publictenders.net/​node/​2537037|Tender notice ]]Published:​Thursday,​ March 27, 2014 \\ 
- \\ 
-From the tender notice:- \\ 
-"The University of Surrey is looking to replace the diverse systems and technologies that are currently used to support Library services. The requirement is for a fully integrated system that will manage our extensive range of electronic resources, growing collection of born digital materials as well as the traditional support to our physical and Special Collections. The system will have a modern and intuitive multi-view discovery and delivery customer facing capability"​. \\ 
- \\ 
-The Library has 60 staff and supports just over 14,000 FTE students, researchers and professional staff 24/7/365. Any solution must be able to robustly deal with the peak periods of activities associated with working in the academic environment. Evidence of the high availability architecture employed will be required as part of any tender. The support from the supplier must also reflect the understanding that service disruption must be minimised, and if there are issues technical support from the supplier must also be provided out of core hours. The key business drivers for this requirement are: 
- 
-  * Improved, efficient and effective management of digital and e-resources. 
- 
-  * Optimisation of information expenditure based on appropriate management information. 
- 
-  * Enhanced user experience through a fully integrated approach to discoverability and delivery. 
- 
-  * Reduced total cost of ownership (across systems, staffing and related units across the institution due to integrations) 
- 
-  * Service availability,​ sustainability,​ security and resilience. 
- 
-  * Continuous process review and improvement utilising modern technologies.
