(Carlsbad, CA - January 13, 2003) Market leader EOS International announces the sale of new EOS e-Library Service licenses to Phillips Graduate Institute, Chicago Mercantile, Institute of Government Affairs - UC Davis, Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center, Technical Career Institute, Hotel Dieu Grace Hospital Library, Georgia State Law Library, Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur LLP, Ballard Spahr Andrews & Ingersoll, LLP, and Goulston & Storrs.
"EOS e-Library Service provides the highest level of protection for library data," states Tony Saadat, CEO of EOS International. "Gaining the trust of these prestigious organizations is confirmation of our clients' recognition of the EOS commitment to the special library industry."
With every EOS e-Library Service installation, proprietary library data (user records, catalog, vendor, serial information, etc.) is loaded onto EOS-owned and operated, state-of-the-art database servers. Even though library data resides on EOS servers, the data remains the property of the library. Library data can be obtained and accessed by service members at any point in time via data exports or data dumps, optional FTP database downloads, or MARC extracts.
EOS also performs the daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly back-ups for EOS e-Library Service members' libraries, thus reducing their maintenance tasks. This is a real benefit for solo librarians who can now focus on improving user service and delivering the information their users need, when they want it.
Once the libraries data is loaded and the EOS e-Library Service implemented, oftentimes libraries discover that access to their collections improves, due to alleviating local firewall restrictions. Usage increases by being able to offer access to library collections from local or remote locations.
