Framingham, MA, January 7, 2008 . Infor today announced that the Department of Canadian Heritage's Knowledge Centre in Gatineau, Québec, Canada has successfully gone live with Vubis Smart. This implementation represents the first adoption of Vubis Smart by a Canadian federal government library and consists of a partnership between Canadian Heritage, Status of Women Canada and the Parks Canada Agency. Administered by the Canadian Heritage Knowledge Centre library staff, the new bilingual (French-English) system will bring to these three organizations, who have offices throughout the country, a new level of functionality in managing and searching their library collections on different databases.
"We are delighted with the successful implementation of Vubis Smart at Canadian Heritage, a long-time customer," said Ellen Isaacson, General Manager North American Library Division. "With Vubis Smart, users can now take full advantage of the Library's extensive services and collections. We look forward to our continued working relationship with Canadian Heritage, including the planned implementation in the spring of V-spaces, our federated search application."
"Vubis Smart's ability to easily run multiple databases on a single system was a major consideration when we evaluated and chose Vubis Smart, said Eric Wees, Manager, Knowledge Centre at Canadian Heritage. "The implementation went very well and we particularly appreciated the quality of the data migration. We now have three organizations with multiple databases and separate parameters working alongside each other under one roof. This integration, together with an entirely bilingual Web OPAC, was a major accomplishment in which we take special pride."
