The Wildlife Conservation Society (NY) Implements Millennium

September 16, 2010 Emeryville, CA. The Wildlife Conservation Society in New York has implemented the Millennium ILS to support the world's most comprehensive conservation organization. As a global research organization, the Wildlife Conservation Society has joined other iconic New York City institutions and Innovative customers, which includes The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Museum of Natural History, and The New York Botanical Garden.

"We particularly like our customers' ability to request material directly through the catalog," says Kerry Prendergast, Director, Wildlife Conservation Society Library. "The librarians like the ability to create lists based on various and frequently changing criteria. With Millennium's technology, the Library provides our end users more flexibility, which gives them greater access to our collection regardless of their location."
