Lille, France -- August 29, 2007. The Médiathéque of the Ecole Superieure de Commerce de Lille announced it has chosen AquaBrowser, the world leader in visual faceted search that connects to any data source, as its primary catalog search tool in the Business School library.
Founded in 1892, ESC Lille - Lille School of Management- is one of the oldest Business Schools in France. For over 114 years it has broken new ground whilst maintaining its warm tradition. The school offers a wide range of management programs at undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate level, as well as Executive education. Now the school's library will break new ground by implementing AquaBrowser to graphically enhance the students' and staff's search experience. AquaBrowser is the only library search system that can incorporate the catalog with any additional data source in a single interface that allows users to search for specific items or virtually browse the collection in one action and location.
"AquaBrowser is going to help us provide a more intuitive and fun way of browsing through our collections. Its interface is really user-orientated -- it will give our catalog search a totally new feel, which we hope will help patrons get to the information they need more quickly and easily," stated Aurélie Duclos, the library's Information Officer.
ESC Lille becomes the first French institution to choose AquaBrowser, and the second in France after the American Library in Paris. AquaBrowser's creators at Medialab Solutions are very excited about this new border-crossing and expect to do more great things in France in the near future with the great amount of interest that has been received.
