INWOOD, W.Va. (March 7, 2017) – Maitland Public Library in Florida has chosen the Library.Solution integrated library system to provide state-of-the-art service to staff and borrowers. Going live on April 1, Maitland will also be one of the first libraries to implement TLC's next-generation cataloging solution, LS2 Cataloging.
Located in beautiful Orange County, Maitland Public Library has been serving local residents since 1896 when it opened in a teacher's living room with a donation of 360 books. Today the library is located in a century-old building that has been expanded three times to accommodate a growing collection that now exceeds 85,000 titles.
In an announcement to its patrons, Maitland Public Library said TLC's Library.Solution automation system "is easier to use, faster, and designed to work great on all of your devices. One of the features we like best about this catalog is that you'll be able to find and download e-books straight from your search results without having to log into OverDrive separately. It even has a catalog just for kids!"
In addition to joining a worldwide family of more than 4,500 TLC libraries, Maitland Public Library will be one of the first implementations of TLC's LS2 Cataloging, which introduces a new approach to cataloging that moves libraries beyond a traditional MARC editor. LS2 Cataloging's innovative use of glossaries to maintain data consistency, a new series service supplying titles linked to genres and audience level, and improvements to batch editing of bibliographic, item, and authority records deliver an improved user experience for staff and a better discovery experience for library users.
