DES PLAINES, ILLINOIS, May 11, 2004: Endeavor Information Systems announced today the two libraries of Santa Rosa Junior College, Santa Rosa, CA selected five of Endeavor's advanced technology systems. Santa Rosa Junior College chose the Voyager integrated library management system, the Voyager integrated Interlibrary Loan system, Endeavor's Media Scheduling media resource and room management system, the ENCompass for Resource Access system for providing access to electronic resources, and the LinkFinderPlus OpenURL-enabled link resolver. Voyager will replace the current Dynix Classic system.
Combined, the Bernard C. Plover Library on Santa Rosa Junior College's Santa Rosa campus and the Herold Mahoney Library on Santa Rosa Junior College's Petaluma campus serve nearly 70,200 users with instructional collections that feature a variety of storage formats, including digital collections.
With plans for a new 145,000 square foot library on the Santa Rosa campus in 2006, and a new library on the Petaluma campus in 2008, the College needed to upgrade their technological infrastructure. Part of one of the largest single college districts in the country, the Sonoma County Junior College District, the Santa Rosa Junior College libraries hold materials to meet the needs of the general education programs for students planning to transfer to four-year institutions and a diverse assortment of over 100 occupational programs that educate the area's current and future workforce.
“We chose Endeavor's systems because they provided the best fit of advanced technology and services for our students and faculty. We were looking for a library system that was capable of addressing our information and technology needs, particularly as they related to our ability provide digital collections and services,” said Will Baty, Dean of Learning Resources and Educational Technology at Santa Rosa Junior College.
“When users have a variety of research needs and a range of learning styles, academic libraries can provide flexible software resources to meet all of these diverse needs,” said Roland Dietz, Endeavor President and CEO. “By selecting Endeavor's suite of advanced library technologies, the Santa Rosa Junior College libraries can provide the best use of their valuable resources with software solutions that are clear and manageable for the library's staff as well.”
