Collaborative Futures

Ontario Council of University Libraries Collaborative Futures initiative (OCUL CF)

Collaborative Futures is a partnership between 14 Ontario university libraries coming together to build one shared discovery platform. The project will include moving from Voyager to the Alma integrated library system, and upgrading to a new version of Primo. This collaboration will help our libraries meet the changing landscape of scholarly communication, higher education, and developments in information technology, within our available resources.

"Our 20 years of experience and expertise in a consortial environment are already helping to shape important OCUL-CF policies and practices.

As we take this exciting step towards a new digital library services platform, I have every confidence that the dedication and hard work we are investing will result in robust access to our rich collections, resources, and services."

- Beth Namachchivaya, University Librarian
