The Public Library of Zutendaal will join bibliotheekNET.limburg (http://pbs.limburg.be/bibliotheeknet.htm), a consortium of 25 libraries in the Belgian province of Limburg in the east of Flanders. bibliotheekNET.limburg enables participating libraries to improve services through centralized system maintenance, acquisitions, collection development and personalized user services.

"The addition of two more libraries to these central consortia further expands the Vubis Smart footprint in Belgium," says Filip Trenson, Infor Sales Manager for the Netherlands and Belgium. "Both BruNO and bibliotheekNET.limburg have implemented Vubis Smart to provide better, centralized services to thousand of users. Each regional system manages its circulation centrally, uses one catalog, and issues a single library card. As more libraries join, users in both the Limburg and Brussels regions will enjoy improved tools to manage their accounts, access collections and find information in multiple locations."
