Minneapolis, MN – August 27, 2003 – Sagebrush Corporation announces that Anaheim City Schools (California) has deployed Sagebrush Accent, Sagebrush's centralized library automation solution, for its schools' information resource management needs. Sagebrush Accent is now used in Anaheim's 23 schools, serving approximately 24,000 students.
“Anaheim has been a long-term customer for Sagebrush on a school by school basis, and we knew that some of the key benefits of Accent—streamlined technology maintenance and standardized cataloging processes—would yield cost-savings and improve the quality of their data,” said Jim Zicarelli, Sagebrush CEO. “By deploying Sagebrush Accent, Anaheim has made their libraries more efficient while also making the information and resources that support learning objectives accessible for students and educators.”
Anaheim City Schools joins a growing number of districts that have deployed Sagebrush Accent, including Tacoma School District 10, St. Paul City Schools, School District of Waukesha, Wisconsin, Grapevine Coleyville ISD in Texas, and many others.
Sagebrush Accent offers school districts of all sizes a fully integrated, centralized library automation solution that is flexible enough to meet the unique needs of individual schools. It provides a single district-wide database and server for all material, circulation and patron records, dramatically reducing technology headaches, enhancing data quality and consistency and providing powerful district-level reporting capabilities. Accent was specifically designed by Sagebrush for K-12 and features Web-based catalog searching appropriate for students at every grade level. Accent is based on SIRSI's centralized automation solution that is used in thousands of libraries of all sizes and complexities around the world.
