Emeryville, CA--Innovative Interfaces, the leading supplier of Web-based library automation systems, announced the University of Scranton in Scranton, Pennsylvania has chosen to install Millennium. Innovative's fourth-generation library automation system will replace Sirsi Classic.

Internet Life magazine included the University of Scranton on its list of “America's Most Wired Colleges.”
