Huntsville, Alabama, August 14, 2006 - Book Systems, Inc. successfully implemented itsí Atriuum product, a 100% Web-based library automation solution, to 153 library media centers in the Memphis City School District (MCSD).

"By purchasing the Atriuum Web-based solution from Book Systems, we were able to replace our existing site-based library automation solution in 153 library media centers and also provide new automation for 17 non-automated sites," said District Library Coordinator Margaret Montgomery of MCSD.

"Atriuum has allowed the Memphis City Schools to eliminate individual site-based servers required to operate their previous library automation solution. With Atriuum, MCSD is able to manage and operate all of their school library media centers on a single dedicated Windows 2003 Server. Obviously, for any IT Department, this is a significant cost savings." said Gaines Gravlee, Book Systemsí Chief Operating Officer.
