Meet Rialto, a modern academic marketplace for today’s librarians

Library teams are increasingly challenged to manage their collections with limited time and resources. They often spend excess time working through manual steps across multiple systems in their acquisitions workflows—time that could be better spent elsewhere.

Alma libraries can save valuable time by using Rialto, a modern marketplace that provides essential information at your fingertips to simplify print and ebook purchasing. Rialto is built on Alma, which streamlines selection and acquisition by eliminating many of the manual steps librarians do today to synchronize workflows across systems.

Rialto’s marketplace is platform-neutral, offering content from top publisher and aggregator platforms in a range of formats and acquisition models. Libraries can customize their search experience to automatically prioritize their preferred platforms, formats and models to help them quickly find the best content for their users.

Rialto has come in at the right time. Our acquisition staff find it very easy and have been using it for e-book ordering from early on...
