Press Release: The Library Corporation [December 19, 2017]

Somerset County Library System of New Jersey implements TLC’S CARL.X

DENVER (December 19, 2017) - The Library Corporation (TLC) is pleased to announce that the Somerset County Library System of New Jersey (SCLSNJ) has successfully migrated to the fully hosted service model of the CARL.X ILS. SCLSNJ serves over 188k residents within their 15 member communities and circulates close to 3 million items annually. They are looking forward to working with TLC to strengthen the offerings that they provide to their staff and patrons.

Previously on the Millennium system from Innovative Interfaces, Inc. for close to 15 years, SCLSNJ is now enjoying the many benefits of CARL, and are especially excited for the CARL.Connect Discovery online catalog.

"CARL.Connect Discovery will allow our patrons to search for what they want - in any format - easier and more effectively. Plus, the new system utilizes a more pleasing and user-friendly interface. I am most excited for what our new ILS means for eCollection readers. If you are an eBook or eAudiobook reader, downloading your next read will

now be only one click away," said SCLSNJ's Technical Services Manager Rebecca Sandoval Sloat.

SCLSNJ was also impressed with the highly organized migration process and hands-on support they received throughout the process. County Library Administrator, Brian Auger, shared that TLC truly lived up to their reputation for providing leading edge service. "I've been working in public libraries since before most were automated, so I've seen quite a few systems come, go and merge. This was by far the smoothest install I've ever witnessed. CARL.X staff are professional, collaborative, uber-organized and absolutely committed to our success. They do it right! If you're evaluating a move to CARL.X, call us."

TLC values the collaborative relationship that has been fostered with SCLSNJ and is eager to help them meet their service level goals and enrich the lives of their community. "Somerset County Library System of New Jersey has been a true partner throughout the migration process and we know that CARL.X will exceed their expectations," shared Annette Harwood Murphy, Co-Founder, President/CEO of TLC. "We welcome them to the TLC family and look forward to a long and successful partnership."
