Montréal, November 6 2003 – BiblioMondo Inc., a leading provider of integrated solutions to the world's public, academic and special libraries is proud to present the next generation of its PortFolio library suite, version 6. Already one of the most powerful and elegantly integrated library systems on the market today, PortFolio version 6 delivers a host of new features and functionalities, along with an entirely re-designed and re-architected serials control module for seamless workflow within the complete PortFolio suite of native Java applications.
With PortFolio version 6, Z39.50 searches are now accessible across all core standard. Further advances in cataloguing now allow URL link validation and resolution for all bibliographic and authority records through an integrated Fautor gateway.
With these and other impressive enhancements comes PortFolio's tour de force, a serials control module that is setting the industry standard. Completely re-engineered, PortFolio version 6 serials control provides a intuitive environment for library periodicals management. Built with the same librarian centric philosophies at root in the entire PortFolio line, the all-new serials control module delivers enhanced detail on periodical frequency and classification, and the ability to separate regular from additional serials content. In addition, serials check-in follows a simple and intuitive process whereby content record analysis and URLs can be associated with specific numbers in the database, while its completely rearchitected routing management capability provides unparalleled accuracy and efficiency. Searching functions have also been substantially enhanced with the ability to query by SICI barcodes. Last, but certainly not least, PortFolio Version 6 Serials control improves administrative capabilities across the board with comprehensive budget planning for a variety of different models that are fully integrated with PortFolio Acquisitions.
“And this is only a taste of what PortFolio 6 has to offer,” said Michel Simard, Director of Product Management at BiblioMondo. “After years of hard work, our efforts have brought forth in a truly comprehensive solution for library management. The unique flexibility of our product allows us to continuously refine it while working closely with our clients to ensure the highest possible satisfaction.
