Quebec, Canada - October 14th, 1999 - The City of Loretteville has chosen Best-Sellerís e-Library Networks software to publish its varied library collection on the Internet and to provide worldwide access. Taking advantage of a government initiative to link the provinceís libraries together in one virtual library network via the Internet, the City of Loretteville Library chose Best-Sellerís PortFolio software to provide the link to the other libraries and to manage all aspects of its local operations.
Best-Seller develops PortFolio, an innovative web based library information management system written entirely in Java. Used by mid-tier to large libraries in North America and Europe, PortFolio enables corporate Enterprise and Public libraries to manage their multi-media collections and provide access to these collections via the Internet or their corporate Intranet.
Todd A. Joron, President and CEO, says ę As Best-Seller developed PortFolio based on International standards, patrons of the Loretteville Library will not only be able to access other automated libraries throughout the province, but also the thousands of automated libraries around the world. Best-Sellerís vision for world-wide e-Library networks was a key factor in the Loretteville decision and we are proud to add them to Best-Sellerís family of integrated libraries. Ľ
PortFolio is Best-Sellerís flagship web-designed product line and includes all the modules required for a library to manage its local collections in addition to participate in the world-wide community of automated libraries. With PortFolio, patrons, whether in the library, at their offices, or in their own homes can search for materials at the Library, reserve them for later use if they are already on loan, or consult the collections of other libraries across the province or around the world.
Best-Seller is a leading supplier of e-Library Networks and services in North America and Europe. With over 200 sites, Best-Sellerís distinguished clients include the Quebec National Library, Hydro-Quebec, the City of Montreal, the Department of National Defense (Canada), the Supreme Court of Canada, Statistics Canada, the Exploratorium (USA), the French Institute (USA), MapQuest.com (USA), the City of Lyon (France), the City of Grenoble (France), the National Library of Monaco, the City of Montpelier (France), and Vincennes Municipal Library (France).
