American Library Association implements SydneyPLUS

Press Release: Lucidea [April 01, 2006]

(Vancouver, Canada - April 1, 2006) Market Leader SydneyPLUS International has added ALA to its growing list of organizations replacing existing Library and Intranet systems with a single integrated solution.

Key factors in the ALA 's choosing of SydneyPLUS were speed of deployment and adaptability. Within days of receiving their training on the SydneyPLUS system, their library database had been converted from their legacy system to SydneyPLUS. Within a few weeks, the library was able to introduce a broad range of services that were previously unavailable, including:

  • RSS feeds
  • policies, forms and documents database
  • training schedules and materials

With its unprecedented flexibility, the SydneyPLUS knowledge repository improves access to vital resources. The result is a robust consolidation of information resources that improves staff efficiency by helping employees make better decisions, faster.

"The SydneyPLUS Information Manager is a valuable tool that lets library and knowledge management professionals push content out to users within the organization," says Karen Muller, Librarian and Knowledge Management Specialist, ALA. "Customizable layouts and individual log-in options let managers tailor content to specific groups and individuals, and draw content from exterior sources such as web sites or RSS feeds."

"We feel very privileged to be able to work with ALA on this project ," says Mark Maslowski. Implementation Manager, "They naturally have very high expectations and standards for their information systems. We were able to offer them a unique and innovative technology that let them meet their goals and exceeded their expectations."
