Alexander Street Press
Alexander Street Press brings together the skills of traditional publishing, librarianship, and software development to create quality electronic collections. We believe that an electronic publication should:

  • Be carefully crafted by expert editors around a specific subject or discipline.
  • Detail all materials relevant to the subject, whatever their original form or ownership.
  • Contain as many of these materials as possible, in multiple formats if necessary.
  • Be indexed with controlled vocabularies for precise, exhaustive searching.
  • Provide unique ways of searching, viewing, exploring and analyzing the material.
  • Facilitate contributions from scholars and librarians.
  • Be priced to enable unlimited exploration by users.

We are creating a series of products using these values.

Ex Libris

Ex Libris
The Ex Libris Group is a worldwide pioneer in the field of software solutions for libraries and information centers. The development of the Ex Libris ALEPH system commenced in 1980, when a team of librarians, systems analysts, and programmers took on the challenge of creating an automated library system that was efficient, user-friendly, and multilingual. The result was the first generation of ALEPH.

Identifying and fulfilling the requirements for a superior integrated library system have served as the technological springboard for the Ex Libris Group. Today, with four working generations of software in hand, Ex Libris continues to set the standards for library and information systems. The Company's responsive research and development team, which includes members of the original ALEPH development group, works closely with current and potential customers to turn new ideas into cutting-edge technologies. Ex Libris aims to combine software strengths and library acumen to provide real solutions for the constantly evolving needs of libraries and information centers.

With your active participation, NW CENTRAL (Northwest Continuing Education Network of Training Resources for All Libraries) will be there for all library staff when they need a “one-stop shopping” destination to find the scores of continuing education opportunities available across the region.

Once fully realized, NW CENTRAL will facilitate interactive conversations between groups interested in similar topics, build local capacity for CE delivery, and may one day provide useful data to help identify training gaps, duplication of resources, and emerging areas of interest.
