Emeryville, CA—Innovative Interfaces, the world's leading provider of Web-powered, Java-based automated library systems, announced today that the San Diego County Library has selected Millennium as its integrated library system. They will be migrating from DRA Classic.
San Diego County Libraries circulate 4.8 million books and other materials annually and have issued over 600,000 library cards to local residents.
San Diego County departments, including the library, participate in a centralized technology infrastructure. Innovative's fully Web-based functionality meshed well with the technological direction the County is taking. “San Diego County Libraries appreciated the strength of our staff client Java implementation and the HTML-compliant OPAC design,” said Jeanne Spala, Innovative's District Account Manager.
“The software, server, and operating system were the closest fit to the County of San Diego's ‘Applications Direction Model,'” said Kathleen Honeysett, Automation Librarian at San Diego County Library. Millennium's fourth-generation (Web-based) technology was also a deciding factor. “The County also strongly prefers that all new applications be Web-based,” Honeysett said.
Millennium will also help San Diego County manage costs. A single Sun server will operate the software, eliminating the need for a number of distributed machines.
