ProQuest, an information solutions provider, has completed its acquisition of Ex Libris Group, a global provider of cloud-based solutions for higher education. The businesses' complementary assets are being integrated, enabling existing services to be enhanced and sparking the creation of all-new solutions that will help libraries seize opportunities in rapidly changing technology, content, and user environments. 

ProQuest has formed a new business unit-Ex Libris, a ProQuest Company-which will continue to support the products that customers depend on, including Alma, Aleph, bX, Intota, Primo, Rosetta, SFX, SIPX, Summon, 360 Link, Voyager, and the newly launched Leganto reading-list solution and campusM mobile campus solution.

ProQuest and its new Ex Libris business unit will continue their longstanding commitment to openness and collaboration with other organizations, including OCLC, Google, Gale Cengage Learning, HARRASSOWITZ, and YBP/EBSCO.
