Emeryville, CA—Innovative Interfaces, the leader in information technology for libraries, announced that its Web- and Java-based Millennium system has been chosen by the College of the Holy Cross Library in Worcester, Massachusetts. Millennium will replace the library's existing Sirsi Classic system.
“The College of the Holy Cross Library staff is looking forward to implementing our new Millennium system,” said Karen Reilly, Associate Director of Libraries at the College of the Holy Cross. “Superior reporting functionality, OpenURL technology, and digital collections solutions are just a few of the many reasons we selected Millennium as our next integrated library system. We feel Innovative has the vision to bring our library system into the twenty-first century.”
The College of the Holy Cross was founded in 1843 by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) in Worcester, Massachusetts. The College is a highly selective, four- year, undergraduate, liberal arts institution and is ranked among the nation's leading four-year liberal arts colleges. The Holy Cross Library System includes the main library—Dinand, the O'Callahan Science Library, the Fenwick Music Library, and the Rehm Library at the Center for Religion, Ethics, and Culture. Holy Cross also collaborates with the Worcester Art Museum and manages its library. The collection includes 591,000 volumes, 1,837 print periodicals, plus multi-media and electronic resources. The library system serves 2,800 students and 284 faculty members.
Innovative's systems are installed in more than half of the twenty-eight Jesuit colleges in the United States. “We are very pleased that the College of the Holy Cross has chosen Millennium to assist the library in achieving its vision,” said Leslie Straus, Innovative's Vice President of Worldwide Sales.
