Emeryville, CA—Innovative Interfaces announced today that nine Innovative libraries in Spain's Andalucian Library Consortium (CBUA) are adding technologies that increase their power to serve patrons and manage the digital library. The Universities of Almería, Cádiz, Córdoba, Granada, Huelva, Jaén, Málaga, Pablo de Olavide, and Sevilla will install Millennium Access Plus and Electronic Resource Management to provide patrons with a seamless online library experience while enhancing the management and delivery of e-serial information.
“These additions expand the strategic relationship between CBUA and Innovative," says Félix de Moya Anegón, Vice Chancellor of New Technologies of University of Granada and Chairman of CBUA. The consortium will add Millennium Access Plus to authenticate online patrons while providing metasearching and smart linking to library and Web resources.
“We made a comparative study about authentication and reference linking products," says Miguel Duarte Barrionuevo, Library Director at University of Cádiz and Technical Director of CBUA. "It is clear that Millennium Access Plus Will provide us the most comprehensive solution for all of the activities the digital library has to perform on the Web. We found value in the ability of WebBridge to provide linking both inside and outside Millennium.”
The consortium chose Electronic Resource Management in order to more effectively manage their more of 6,000 e-serial subscriptions and drive this information to the Web OPAC. Innovative is also delivering two products to further speed technical services workflow: Serials E-Checkin (to speed updating) and E-Journal Holdings Updates (for batch loading) of serial data.
