Five Academic Publishers to Advise on Development of the Rialto Marketplace

Aug 13, 2019

A group of global academic publishers has announced that they will contribute their expertise to the development of ProQuest Rialto. Rialto is a comprehensive marketplace that enables libraries to acquire content from a variety of publishers and platforms.

Emerald Publishing, Oxford University Press, SAGE Publishing, Taylor & Francis Group and The University of Chicago Press will work with ProQuest to shape the new product. These publishers join a group of 10 academic libraries who have also signed on as development partners, ensuring a three-way, content-neutral conversation between libraries, the publishing community and ProQuest, a leader in educational technology. Rialto will be initially available to its development partners in December of this year before its broader launch.

ProQuest announced the development of Rialto in November 2018. Built on the Alma library services platform, Rialto streamlines purchasing workflows by enabling libraries to acquire content of all types – ebooks, print books, video and more – from many sources. Advanced analytics from Rialto will help libraries make data-driven selection and acquisition decisions.
