September 28, 2007 -- Emeryville, CA—Innovative announced today that the Palos Verdes Public Library District (PVLD) has selected the Millennium integrated library technology platform. The library will implement WebPAC Pro enhanced with the Community Reviews product, as well as Innovative's Research Pro federated search tool.
"We were impressed with the functionality of the Millennium system," says Laszlo Latkoczy, Information Technology Department Head. "We liked the ability for patrons to track their reading history and create reviews directly in WebPAC Pro. The elegant circulation functionality also appealed to us. From the demonstration you could see how much thought went into the module in terms of how everything can be done from a single screen. In general, the Millennium interfaces reflect thought and effort."
Millennium is the right choice among the players in the automation industry. Says Latkoczy: "Innovative is a stable company that has been at it for twenty-plus years. We had a cross-functional selection team review all potential products and Innovative was the unanimous choice."
Palos Verdes also selected fully integrated patron self-service products including Ecommerce and Patron Registration. Ecommerce allows library users to pay fines, fees, or make donations to the library. Patron Registration is a powerful management tool that presents library events directly in the catalog for easy patron discovery and quick registration through the "My Millennium" personalization suite.
