(Carlsbad, CA – March 9, 2005) Market leader EOS International announces that St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, located in Memphis, Tennessee, has chosen to upgrade from EOS GLAS® to EOS.Web Express, and to have their information access solution hosted at the EOS Global Data Center located in Carlsbad, California via the EOS e-Library Service.
In addition to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital electing to upgrade from EOS GLAS, Saint Mary's Regional Medical Center, Reno, NV; Royal Adelaide Hospital RAH/IMVS Library, Adelaide, Australia; St Mary's Hospital, Grand Junction, CO; Cleveland Chiropractic College, Los Angeles, CA; Cleveland Chiropractic College, Kansas, MO; Harris Methodist Hospital, Ft. Worth, TX; Mercy General Health Partners, Muskegon, MI; and Baptist Memorial Hospital, Memphis, TN, have all recognized the value EOS solutions bring to Health Sciences libraries.
“When our designated IT support was reassigned to another part of the institution, we decided to look into having EOS International ASP-host our library automation solution,” states Jan Orick, Library Director for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. “We are looking forward to having our updates handled for us and to experiencing the ease of use associated with using a fully Web-based, integrated cataloging and serials solution. We are also hoping that the very user-friendly EOS.Web OPAC will provide the Doctors and researchers easier access to our resources.”
