September 1, 2015 -- Emeryville, CA. Innovative announced today that Napa County Library (NCL) in northern California has selected the Polaris ILS and Polaris Leap--the responsive-design Web client that performs key library workflows on tablets and laptops. NCCL has a collection size of 150,000 and an annual circulation of over 1 million items. NCCL is also joining the ranks of the LINK+ resource-sharing consortium, which is powered by Innovative's INN-Reach consortial borrowing system. As a member, NCL will have access to materials from over 60 academic and public libraries that hold over 11 million items. NCL is replacing a Carl.X system by TLC.
"The Polaris ILS and Polaris Leap will allow NCL to connect more effectively with patrons through the Web and mobile devices," says Innovative's SVP of Global Sales Bill Schickling. "In addition, its new participation in LINK+ gives its community access to millions more books and direct requesting of these items through the PAC. We believe that Innovative's solution will significantly improve the patron experience and help NCL sustain excellent services into the future."
