(Carlsbad, CA - February 3, 2004) Market leader EOS International announces that The David Library of the American Revolution, an EOS International client since 2001, has recently migrated to the EOS e-Library Service(tm). The David Library exists to collect, preserve, and make available material related to the American revolutionary era. With over 8,000 monographs and 10,000 reels of microfilm, the library contains the most concentrated holding of American revolutionary materials found anywhere.
By implementing the EOS Web OPAC, Associate Librarian for the David Library, Kathy Ludwig, has been able to make the collection more accessible to both the library's staff and to the public.
"The primary motivation was to allow our collection to be made more accessible to the public, both to in-house users and eventually through the Web. Library automation opens the library's collection to all users, both on-site and remote," states Ms. Ludwig.
EOS e-Library Service has streamlined the David Library's workflow by allowing trained EOS IT technicians to maintain the software through its ASP-hosted delivery option. Further, increased usage of EOS International's Web OPAC module has helped streamline access to holdings for both staff and researchers.
"We originally chose the EOS solution because of the flexibility of the product. We were impressed with the product reviews through both published sources and customer input," says Ms. Ludwig. "We were also impressed with the cutting edge software, including regular upgrades and the ability of tech support to access our system and make repairs as necessary."
