February 3, 2009 -- Emeryville, CA. Innovative announced that Austin Peay State University (APSU) has selected the Millennium ILS and Encore, joining the growing ranks of customer libraries in the state of Tennessee. APSU is migrating from a SirsiDynix Horizon system.
"Our reference and instruction librarians were immediately taken with Encore," says Joe Weber, Director of Library Services. "Encore is new and different and yet it looks familiar to internet users with its tag cloud and other features. With library technology, we try to make it as easy and simple as possible for our users. Encore fits in with what we are trying to do with our web presence."
Weber continues: "Millennium is a great system and I liked using it as an acquisitions librarian in the past. Everybody I have talked to in our region has had good things to say about Millennium and Innovative. It is a terrific company and I admire its ongoing corporate independence. I know we can expect excellent customer support from Innovative."
APSU joins other Tennessee libraries recently selecting Millennium such as East Tennessee State University, O'More College of Design, Tennessee State University, Tennessee Tech University, and University of Memphis.
