PROVO, Utah October 16, 2003 Dynix, the world's leading provider of automation technologies, solutions and services for libraries, announced today that the nine colleges comprising the Glasgow Colleges Group are migrating to Horizon from Sirsi, Easel, Alice, and Heritage systems.
Members of the Glasgow Colleges Group include Stow College, North Glasgow College, Langside College, Glasgow College of Nautical Studies, Glasgow College of Food Technology, Glasgow College of Building and Printing, Central College of Commerce, Cardonald College, and Anniesland College.
We needed a highly functional system with proper backup and support features, said Mark Clark, System Administrator for Glasgow Colleges Group. We chose Dynix because of the company's technical expertise and sound understanding of the needs of academic libraries.
According to Clark, the ability to interoperate with other local higher education institutions and the public library service will be the most important benefit of migrating to Horizon. The move will provide the widest possible access to electronic and paper-based learning materials to GCG's 25,000 students. The new Horizon system will manage a collection of 200,000 items and an annual circulation of 400,000.
