Emeryville, CA. Innovative announced today that Greater Sudbury Public Library (GSPL) has upgraded to the Sierra Library Services Platform. GSPL holds over 400,000 items and circulates nearly one million items each year. Half of the city's population has a library card and can access library services at any of 13 branches. Previously GSPL used Innovative's Millennium ILS.
Says Claire Zuliani, Manager of Libraries and Heritage Resources: "As the library evolves and responds to the ever changing needs of our community, we remain committed to our core values to support a healthy community, offer excellent customer service and be responsive to the individual needs of citizens all within a welcoming learning environment."
"The international library community has been embracing Sierra, and we are pleased to extend the partnerships we have with current customers in Canada and beyond," says Chris Le Blanc, SVP of Global Sales. "Sierra is unique because it is robust enough to process millions of transactions, which is important to GSPL, and flexible enough to interoperate with external systems that bring rich content such as eBooks to library users."
