The Library Corporation (TLC) is happy to announce that, in spite of the hurdles and challenges COVID-19 continues to present to the library industry in 2020, TLC's family of customers continues to grow and thrive. The most recent library to join the TLC family is Bremen Public Library (BPL).
Located in Indiana just 30 minutes south of South Bend, this former iii Sierra library went live in early November on TLC's 100% web-based Library Management Software, Library.Solution. In addition to utilizing Library.Solution's award-winning software solutions, they also chose to implement TLC's Hosted.Solution, allowing TLC to host and maintain BPL's data and server environment.
Following recent developments to health and safety protocols, TLC implemented the new system at BPL completely remotely. The partnership formed between TLC's implementation staff and BPL's staff ensured the success of the implementation. Terrie Bickel, Head of Library Services at Bremen Public Library, is incredibly pleased with the new system. "Cataloging is amazing, it's so much easier," she stated. "The new system is a lot more user friendly!"
"Library.Solution is a system built to enhance a library's operational efficiency and to allow library staff to spend less time in the library's management system and more time in the actual library," stated TLC's founder and CEO Annette Murphy. "We are happy that Bremen Public Library has chosen Library.Solution as its next-generation Library Management Software and we look forward to developing our partnership for years to come."
