Emeryville, CA—The John M. Pfau Library at California State University, San Bernardino has selected the Millennium integrated library technology platform to meet the expectations of students and open the door to increasing campus integration. The University replaces a Horizon system serviced by SirsiDynix, Inc.
Library Dean Johnnie Ann Ralph has considerable experience at the University Library and has seen the evolution of both library technology and student expectations: "As the years have gone by, the expectation level of users has risen and they have become more sophisticated. The benchmark is much higher now. We chose Millennium because we feel that it will best meet their needs and facilitate their research." Continued Ralph, "Millennium also provides options to expand that are important as the library seeks to integrate with campus computing initiatives."
Innovative has a long history with the CSU system, counting its libraries among its very first customers. With this selection, Millennium extends its presence in CSU campuses to 15 of 23 sites. "That Millennium and other Innovative products have succeeded in a large and diverse campus system like ours shows good things about the company," says Ralph.
About The Pfau Library
The mission of the Pfau Library at the California State University San Bernardino is to meet the information needs of its patrons, both in paper and electronic formats, both inside and outside its walls, as it continues to support curricular and research needs of the campus. Information seekers should be able to access data from inside the Library, from campus offices, from residences, and from satellite campuses located at a distance. Retrievable information should encompass everything available free and by license in the bibliographic and intellectual world, and not just what the Library owns. In 2005, the John M. Pfau Library's staff celebrated the addition of the 750,000th volume to its collection—the same year of the campus' 40th anniversary.
