Framingham, MA, June 15, 2010. Infor announced today that École Polytechnique de Montréal, a leading engineering school in Canada and the largest institution of its kind in Québec, has selected V-smart, Infor’s web-based integrated library system. École Polytechnique selected V-smart following an open tender process and will be implementing V-smart to replace the library’s current system.
"As a leading educational and research institution École Polytechnique must offer students and faculty the best possible ways to access an array of resources", says Ellen Isaacson, general manager, North American Library Division, Infor. "For the library, this means having the tools at hand that support a dynamic research environment. With V-smart, the library and its users will benefit from a next-generation system that seamlessly integrates traditional and digital content, and links the library and its users to the research community at large."
Says Greg Whitney, Library Systems Coordinator: "We are looking forward to replacing our legacy ADVANCE system with the much more modern V-smart ILS, which is better adapted for successfully managing the challenges and opportunities of a 21st century academic research information environment. Some important elements for our library were: 100% web interface for both library users & staff, French language interface & support, Unicode, multi-format (MARC & non-MARC) database capabilities, OPAC with Web 2.0 elements and WSIWYG statistical functionality. All of which are offered by Infor’s V-smart and V-insight. We are also looking forward to a collaborative and long-lasting partnership with Infor Library and Information Solutions."
École Polytechnique was founded in 1873 and is located in Montréal, Québec. Polytechnique offers a wide array of programs (more than 100) at every level: certificates, bachelor’s degrees and post-graduate studies. With 58 research units, Polytechnique’s research activities are among the most active in Canada and account for nearly one-quarter of all university research in engineering in Québec.
