Minneapolis, MN – June 27, 2003 – Sagebrush Corporation today announced that the school district of Monroe County, Georgia, has selected Accent, Sagebrush's centralized library automation solution, for its information resource management needs. Sagebrush Accent will be deployed in all schools in the district and will be in operation when schools open this year. The Monroe County School District serves approximately 4,000 students.
“The school district of Monroe County chose Sagebrush Accent because they wanted the ability to continue to grow without having to consider upgrading the library system again,” said Jim Zicarelli, Sagebrush CEO. “Accent gives districts of all sizes the capability to expand while helping them control IT maintenance costs in the process.”
Monroe County joins a growing number of districts that have deployed Sagebrush Accent, including Tacoma School District 10, St. Paul City Schools, Anaheim City Schools, the School District of Waukesha, Wisconsin, Grapevine-Coleyville ISD in Texas, and many others.
Sagebrush Accent offers school districts of all sizes a fully integrated, centralized library automation solution that is flexible enough to meet the unique needs of individual schools. It provides a single district-wide database and server for all material, circulation and patron records, dramatically reducing technology headaches, enhancing data quality and consistency and providing powerful district-level reporting capabilities. Accent was specifically designed by Sagebrush for K-12 and features Web-based catalog searching appropriate for students at every grade level. Accent is based on SIRSI's centralized automation solution that is used in thousands of libraries of all sizes and complexities around the world.
