Abstract: Metro Nashville Public Schools will implement TLC's new Web-based circulation module, Web Circ, in 131 schools.

INWOOD, WV, November 8, 2006 - Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS) will implement TLC's new Web-based circulation module, Web Circ, in 131 schools.

Web Circ integrates with the school system's Library.Solution for Schools ILS from TLC.

With Web Circ, MNPS library media specialists can perform circulation functions from a browser without having to install software at the individual school. Web Circ was designed specifically for schools. It includes user-friendly screens that can be used by library media specialists, library assistants, and student helpers with little training.

With Web Circ, MNSP media specialists can search a particular teacher and pull up a class list with pictures. The interface's intuitive design enables staff to click on the student picture of choice to check out books. Web Circ also features tabs across the top of the screen to provide integrated access to the district's OPAC, TLC's Reports Manager, or any other Web site(s).

Since TLC released Web Circ in August, nine school districts, including MNPS, have chosen to implement it with their Library.Solution for Schools systems. They are: Atlanta Public Schools, GA; Irving ISD, TX; Kalamazoo Public Schools, MI; Livonia Public School District, MI; Marshall Public Schools, MI; Menom nie Area Schools, WI; Thompson School District, CO; and Weber School District, UT.

About Library.Solution for Schools:

It provides school districts with a central database accessible via a multitude of interfaces, including KCweb children's interface, Web-based circulation, cataloging, acquisitions, bookings, serials and OPAC. Library.Solution for Schools is available on Windows or UNIXR servers, and is accessible from both Windows and Macintosh computers.
