California Energy Commission delivers with SydneyPLUS

Press Release: Lucidea [June 22, 2007]

(Vancouver, Canada -- June 22, 2007) The California Energy Commission Library of Sacramento California has launched SydneyPLUS's Web Client ASP solution to deliver its valued Energy collection to the public.

Using the Web Client ASP solution, the CEC Library was able to,

  • Deliver improved online access to its collection of print and electronic documents
  • Provide individual OPAC search interfaces for staff and public
  • Eliminate internal costs associated with owning a server
  • Enjoy regular upgrades, applied automatically at no cost

"Web Client has made our catalog more accessible to our users who include Energy Commission staff, California state government agencies, the Legislature and its staff, and members of the public," says Rosemary Guerin-Place, Supervising Librarian for the CEC Library.

Once the project started the CEC Library was migrated within a few months. The database itself was converted over a weekend to reduce downtime.

The CEC Library is now setting its sights on further enhancing end user services with SydneyPLUS's IM technology that allows each staff member to have a single access point for all electronic resources through a personal custom view. Coupled with the ability to provide detailed usage statistics, this will provide the library with fact based purchasing decisions.

The California Energy Commission is the state's primary energy policy and planning agency. With more than 22,000 titles the Library is the state's main repository for information on energy topics and related subjects.
