(Carlsbad, CA – September 8, 2003) Market leader EOS International announces that an unprecedented number of special libraries are making the switch to EOS e-Library Service as subscriptions to the widely popular ASP hosted library automation service surpasses the triple-digit mark this year.
“Special libraries realize significant cost savings when they standardize their ILS with the EOS e-Library Service,” states Tony Saadat, CEO of EOS International. “From cataloging and circulation to searching the OPAC, the benefits are tremendous.”
Delivered directly to the library's desktop, the user interface is customizable to any library, including the ability to insert logos, use organization-specific colors, and to securely control both patron and staff access. The service enables libraries to manage key business processes in a single, integrated system while supporting custom library workflows and polices. There is no hardware to buy, no up-front license fees, and no complex installation procedures.
“Often faced with massive hardware upgrade costs resulting from aging devices and the need for increased software functionality, special libraries find the ASP-hosted library automation system outperforms a local, in-house system. Increased upgrade costs are either eliminated or reduced significantly,” states Salvatore Provenza, Director of Sales and Marketing. “Many libraries have also experienced reduced personnel costs, due to having expert EOS technicians diagnosing problems immediately and applying quarterly upgrades behind the scenes for you.”
Special libraries currently enjoying the ‘worry-free' benefits associated with the EOS e-Library Service include: Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP, Pacific Gas & Electric Co., US Customs and Border Protection Library, County of Orange, Carilion Health Systems, Bureau of Land Management, David Library of the American Revolution, CoxHealth Systems, Loomis Chaffee School, Maryland Historical Society, Northwestern College, Embassy of Australia, and many, many more.

A client-driven company which remains the only ILS vendor to ever have been nominated for a Computerworld Smithsonian award, EOS library automation software products (EOS.Web, EOS Q-Series, EOS GLAS®, and hosted, EOS e-Library Services) serve the stringent knowledge management needs of corporate, legal, medical, government and special libraries of all sizes.
