August 19, 2010 -- Emeryville, CA. DeKalb County Public Library has selected Encore and will implement Innovative's discovery platform with the SirsiDynix Horizon ILS.
Says Tamika Strong, Automation Services Coordinator: "Our library has been looking at various enhancement tools over the last few years that would improve our patrons' searching experience when they use our online catalog. We were looking for a product that not only offered Google-like searching and user ratings and reviews, but also the ability to search databases for articles at the same time. We selected Encore because it met these criteria and much more. Encore will help us meet the searching needs of our patrons while at the same time increasing and improving access to more than 900,000 items in our collection."
