PARIS, France, January 15, 2008.

The Library will be implementing Vubis Smart along with Infor’s suite of library automation solutions - V-link, (OpenURL) and V-sources (e-resources management). The selection of Vubis Smart by Sainte-Geneviève follows the selection of the system by the City of Strasbourg in the biggest tender in France of 2007 and underscores the system’s growing success in France.

"Bibliothèque Universitaire Sainte-Geneviève chose Vubis Smart following a tender in which most vendors participated," says Ann Melaerts, Managing Director Infor Library and Information Solutions. "Vubis Smart is often considered an excellent application for public libraries in particular, yet the system has been enjoying growing appeal with academic libraries as well. We are of course delighted that Sainte-Geneviève has chosen Vubis Smart and we look forward to working with the Library in implementing the system in the weeks ahead."
