Ex Libris App Center

ucbooks

ucbooks provides a white-label platform for members of your institution to buy, sell or lend used textbooks and access library content.

Library metadata is intelligently delivered with respect to the student’s search query. Holding information can be accessed, and e-books read, native to the app. One can also save resources for future viewing. We have integrations with PRIMO search, ALMA Bibs and ALMA SRUs. Access to the platform is limited to an institution via single sign-on.

This service includes a white-label website, a native mobile application and a Learning Tools Interoperability integration.

During the last orientation week at the University of Amsterdam, over six hundred students signed up and over twelve thousand push notifications were sent to students. Over four hundred library resources were interacted with. On 31st August, 2019, we were 27th in the Dutch App Store. We currently service three institutions.

We provide academic libraries an annual license in return for our offering.
