DES PLAINES, ILLINOIS, Oct. 30, 2003: Endeavor Information Systems is pleased to announce the selection of Endeavor's Voyager integrated library management system by the Legislative Library of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, including the ENCompass system for managing, searching and linking collections and the LinkFinderPlus integrated OpenURL-enabled link resolver.
Managing over 415,300 volumes, the private library provides information and research service to 103 Members of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. Up to 900 patrons use the Legislative Library services in Toronto and in constituency offices across the province.
ENCompass and LinkFinderPlus achieve the Legislative Library's goals to integrate electronic resources, regardless of location. ENCompass also provides opportunities for the Legislative Library to integrate their information resources with resources in the other divisions of the Office of the Assembly, improving overall access to information for Members and their staff. Voyager will assist the Legislative Library to streamline work processes and to provide an advanced ILS with full user-focused functionality.
"Recognizing the value of implementing advanced digital technologies in ENCompass and LinkFinderPlus, the Legislative Library enables researchers seamless and complete access to resources that may have previously been confusing or impossible to access in a single search," said Roland Dietz, Endeavor President and CEO. "Adding value to the user experience is significant for many libraries; Endeavor is proud to work with the Legislative Library to fulfill the important research needs of the Ontario legislators through the Endeavor suite of systems."
