Garches, France, June 15, 2009. Infor announced today that the Troyes Metropolitan Area Media Center (Médiathèque de l'Agglomération Troyenne - MAT) has selected Infor's suite of automation products. MAT will be implementing V-smart, Infor's web-based integrated library system, alongside Infor's V-spaces federated search application, V-link OpenURL Resolver, and V-insight statistical analysis portal. With its selection of Infor's automation products, MAT joins a growing number of prestigious libraries that use Infor's products in France including the City of Paris Library Network, the Academic Library of Sainte-Geneviève University (BSG), La Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris (CIUP) and La Bibliothèque nationale et universitaire de Strasbourg (BNU).
Says Ann Melaerts, managing director Infor Library and Information Solutions: "The selection of our products in an open tender by the Troyes Metropolitan Media Center further strengthens our position as a vendor of choice for many libraries with diverse information management needs. For MAT, in particular, we will be implementing extensive Web 2.0 functionality in the Web OPAC for example. The project is now well underway with the go-live of V-smart scheduled for the end of this year."
