July 10, 2014 -- Emeryville, CA. Innovative announced today that Cuyahoga County Public Library (Parma, OH) (CCPL) has selected SkyRiver, Innovative's comprehensive cataloging service offering unprecedented record quality and ease of use. The library's collection includes more than three million physical items, eBooks, and electronic databases. CCPL ranks among the top US public libraries, earning the Library Journal "Five-Star" rating for five consecutive years and topping the nation's large urban library systems in per-capita circulation for four consecutive years.
"We are excited to be moving to SkyRiver for a number of reasons," said Technical Services Director Daniel Barden. "In addition to cost savings for CCPL, the utility is also easy to use. Because it has the look and feel of Sierra, SkyRiver has improved our workflow. With more libraries making the switch to SkyRiver, the number and quality of records keeps improving."
"Public libraries such as Cuyahoga County Public Library are adopting SkyRiver because it offers the cataloging flexibility they need while maintaining quality records and easy searching," says Christopher Le Blanc, Innovative's Senior Vice President of Global Sales. "They join a rapidly growing group of libraries that have chosen SkyRiver for its new approach to providing cataloging metadata as well as its clean look-and-feel."
