Emeryville, CA—Innovative Interfaces announced today that the Library of Congress has installed Electronic Resource Management. Electronic Resource Management, a market-first from Innovative, provides all of the tools a library needs to collect and manage the licensing and administrative details of its myriad electronic resources while dramatically improving staff and patron access to this information. The Library of Congress implementation is a stand-alone sale that will use an Oracle database.
Although Electronic Resource Management is currently in active use at over 80 Millennium libraries, Innovative began to explore integration of the product with library system software from other vendors early in 2003. Cornell University, the State University of New York at Buffalo, and Utah State University are in the vanguard of libraries taking advantage of the opportunity to organize, track, and control the hundreds of complex electronic sources that consume ever-increasing portions of library budgets.
With over 25 years of partnership with the library community, Innovative Interfaces (www.iii.com) is the leader in providing Web-powered, Java-based automated library systems. Its flagship product offering, Millennium, is installed in thousands of libraries in 42 countries around the world. The company is headquartered in Emeryville, California, with offices in Australia, Canada, France, Hong Kong, Korea, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, and the United Kingdom.
