(Carlsbad, CA April 20, 2005) Market leader EOS International announces that the newly formed Charleston School of Law in Charleston, SC, has successfully implemented EOS.Web Enterprise in conjunction with EOS e-Library Service to create a modern law library that is in tune with contemporary legal practice needs and electronic research.
As a new library, we were looking for a product that was web based, that offered a hosted solution and that was flexible enough to provide the support needed to add large numbers of MARC records as we obtained large digital collections and would allow us to focus on the core functions of the library without having to build a technology infrastructure to support an integrated library system, states Gordon Russell, Associate Dean, Director of Library and Information Technology and Professor of Law at the Charleston School of Law Library.
EOS.Web is a customizable, Web-based solution built on Microsoft .NET technologies. All EOS.Web clients choose between installing EOS.Web locally on their own server, or they can have EOS International host their customized EOS.Web solution via EOS e-Library Service, which is available worldwide.
"The EOS.Web system enables our small staff to successfully manage the digital collections that the library owns or subscribes to, providing a state-of-the-art information-access bridge to our users. We are also working to link law school exams and faculty publications using EOS.Web KnowledgeBuilder."
EOS.Web KnowledgeBuilder classifies information that is not a good fit for a typical bibliographic record, such as a legal work product or internal documents. Librarians can visually create the record and fields for their custom taxonomy or classification system, making available for on-the-fly searching a structured database containing files complete with their associated custom metadata, such as abstracts.
