Emeryville, CA—The Libraries at Becker College (MA) have selected the Millennium integrated library technology platform along with its WebBridge component to best serve their distinctive two-campus system. The Libraries are replacing a MultiLIS system provided by SirsiDynix, Inc.
Millennium proved to be the right fit for both staff efficiency and public access at the College. "Millennium's management reports will be important to us because they can be easily run by appropriate library personnel from either of our two campus locations. These reports can also serve as a tool for collection development, ordering, and management of our resources," says Dean of the Libraries Jean Collins. "We were also impressed with the fully functional out-of-the-box user interface and its options for customization."
The College also selected the fully integrated WebBridge, a tool that presents links to library-selected resources relevant to a user's online-catalog search. "The pathfinders that WebBridge provides will help users find appropriate resources when they don't have a known item in mind," says Collins. "We like the seamless access from initial online catalog query to other electronic and print resources offered by our libraries. It's a great way to create visibility to all of our holdings."
The Right Company
Says Collins: "We see Innovative as an industry leader in terms of products and services, which definitely factored in our decision. Industry feedback from other colleges reflects a high rate of satisfaction with both the company and its services."
