Melbourne – 16 November 2015: Civica Library Solutions, a market leader in specialist software and outsourcing that help organisations to transform the way they work, is pleased to announce the latest partnership with Bibliotheca to bring Cloud Library e-content to libraries across Australia and New Zealand.
Cloud Library e-books and audiobooks can now be accessed and loaned directly through the Spydus Integrated Library Management System, in addition to the existing Cloud Library App. For library staff, the integration enables valuable usage statistics via standard Spydus reports.
"Being able to offer Cloud Library integration is important to us, as it is an expanding e-content platform in the ANZ region," said Marc Nolan, Managing Director of Civica Library Solutions. "Our newest customer, Fairfield City Library in New South Wales, will be the first library to take up this integration so it is perfect timing that we have been able to complete this integration in time for their go-live."
"Cloud Library is a major product in the new Bibliotheca portfolio and we're excited to show our customers our commitment to continuing to expand the Cloud Library in Australia and New Zealand and work with new partners like Civica," said Tom Mercer, who joins Bibliotheca as Director of Digital Products. "Cloud Library remains the platform that will uniquely connect with patrons at home, at the library and on the go. Our newest integration with the Spydus LMS platform will grant easy-to-use digital access to patrons, provide library staff with more valuable analytics, and ultimately help increase digital circulation."
Libraries wishing to know more about Civica's e-content integration should contact their local Civica or Cloud Library representative.
