London -- 12th November 2014. PTFS Europe has been working closely with The Reading Agency to provide a new service which delivers high quality reading lists seamlessly to your library web site. The service uses PTFS Europe's Rebus:list reading list management system with pre-populated book lists from The Reading Agency. This includes the titles recommended through their Reading Well programme, which promotes the benefits of reading for health and wellbeing; and the Summer Reading Challenge recommended reads for children. The service integrates with your library management system for up to date holdings and item status information and also includes reporting on reading list material usage and identifies reading list material held locally or not in stock.
Peter Barker, Director of Business Management at the Reading Agency, said: "We're delighted that our partnership with PTFS Europe means our book lists – and importantly, the reading programmes behind them that help change people's lives – can now be reached through Rebus:list."
Lesley Jones, Business Development Manager at PTFS Europe added "We are very pleased to partner with The Reading Agency on this exciting new service and hope that it will streamline the process of giving access to material from The Reading Agency's programmes and promotions to library customers"
