Voyager user-focused design, open architecture chosen by academic libraries

DES PLAINES, ILLINOIS, Apr. 8, 2004: Endeavor Information Systems announced today the academic libraries of three four-year institutions recently selected the Voyager integrated library management system for advanced library automation.

“Voyager provides four-year institutions the comprehensive resource management for the acquisitions, cataloging, circulation and public access of resources for a variety of learning programs. With accessible, user-focused design, Voyager supports the needs of first-year users and returning to learning students, as well as experienced graduate-level and faculty researchers, ” said Roland Dietz, Endeavor President and CEO. “Endeavor is proud to work with academic libraries, who make up nearly three-fourths of our solid Voyager customer base.”

The following libraries are currently migrating from their previous systems to Endeavor's Voyager ILS:

  • Point Park College, Pittsburgh, PA chose Voyager to manage over 150,000 volumes. The library previously used an Innovative Millennium system. The Library Center houses the Park Point collections and the Business Library collections. The library migration coincides with the College's elevation to a university status in September 2004, when the institution will be renamed Point Park University.
  • Recognized in 2003 as the top university in Scotland for the investment in library facilities, the University of Albertay Dundee, Dundee, Scotland, implements Voyager to replace a Dynix Classic system. One of the leading universities in the use of communications and information technologies to support teaching and learning, the University of Albertay Dundee's 5,600 students make use of over 157,000 volumes and 2,500 electronic journals at the University Library. The library also makes electronic resources available via a Virtual Library web-based portal.
  • Reinhardt College, Waleska, GA selected Voyager to replace an EOS system. The Hill Freeman Library and Spruill Learning Center provides 40,000 volumes to more than 1,100 students on the main campus and the North Fulton campus.
