(VTLS, Inc.) Universiti Putra Malaysia celebrated 25 years of partnership with an anniversary event on November 11, 2013. UPMís Chief Librarian, Amir Hussain Mohd. Ishak and former Chief Librarian, Tuan Syed Salim Agha, both attended the event along with VTLS President & CEO Dr. Vinod Chachra, library staff members and staff from VTLS Technologies Sdn Bhd (VTLSí Malaysian subsidiary). While the event was held a few days after a similar silver anniversary celebration with the National Library of Malaysia, UPM was actually the first VTLS customer in Malaysia. With its original VTLS implementation, UPM became the first library in Malaysia to automate with an online integrated library system (ILS), housed in its own computer room inside the library. VTLS is proud of its association with UPM, a proven leader in information technology, and is pleased to continue to enjoy the confidence and loyalty of UPM as a customer.

(VTLS, Inc.) VTLS has repackaged its Virtua ILS software to make it attractive to smaller libraries. The package is easy to install and more convenient to use as there are many more defaults preconfigured into the software. VTLS is happy to report that Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) Bintulu Sarawak campus becomes the first institution to select this package. The implementation went live in May 2009 and includes 8 user licenses and runs on Xeon XC hardware. This includes all the subsystems and Oracle.
