DES PLAINES, ILLINOIS, Jan. 14, 2005: Endeavor Information Systems announced today the selection of the Voyager integrated library management system at diverse academic and special libraries. An inclusive system, Voyager includes an intuitive user interface, and full staff support for acquisitions, cataloging, circulation and report writing. Chosen by 1,300 academic, special and research libraries around the world, the Voyager ILS is customizable and scalable to meet the needs of libraries of many disciplines and sizes.
Ensuring libraries are able to easily implement and take full advantage of Voyager's opportunities, Endeavor provides a full range of implementation, training and data migration services. Endeavor's proven track record of on-time and under-budget implementations and proactive customer support emphasize the benefits of partnering with Endeavor for integrated library systems.
Libraries recently choosing the Voyager system include:
Chippewa Valley Technical College, Eau Claire, WI, selected Voyager to replace an Innovative Millennium system. With 32,000 volumes, the CVTC Technology Resource Library supports the needs of students in an eleven-county area in northwest Wisconsin. The Library holds research materials for nearly 60 disciplines of associate and certificate technical degree programs.
Grand View College, Des Moines, IA selected the Voyager integrated library management system to replace the AMLIB system. The Grand View College Library holds 95,000 volumes serving the research and information needs of 1,750 undergraduate, graduate and certificate students on two campuses. The Grand View College Library will implement Voyager on the Windows 2000 server platform.
Finnish Institute for Russian and East European Studies, Helsinki, Finland, selected Voyager to replace an Access™ based system. Specializing in research of Russian and Eastern European countries, the Library holds more than 90,000 volumes in diverse languages. The Library's collections document social science, economics, Russian language and culture through reference books, newspapers, journals, maps and miscellaneous materials.
Seminary of the Immaculate Conception, Huntington, NY selected Voyager as the first online public access catalog for the Library, which was previously unautomated. The Library holds 47,000 volumes to serve masters and doctoral level students. A member of the Long Island Library Resource Council, the Library serves the educational research needs of the Seminary, which aims to be the Roman Catholic center of theological education and pastoral and spiritual formation in Long Island.
Southern Baptist Historical Library and Archives, Nashville, TN chose Voyager to support the institution's role as the worldwide center for the study of Southern Baptist history. Previously using OCLC records and an unautomated card catalog, the Library will implement Voyager to manage more than 28,000 books, over 71,000 annuals, and significant numbers of items related to Southern Baptist history. One of the major denominational collections in the United States, the Library and Archives are the central depository of Southern Baptist Convention records.
