Book Systems, Inc. is successfully implementing its Atriuum Library Automation System, a 100% Web-based library automation solution, in the 54 school library media centers and the Central Office Instructional Materials Center (IMC) in Jefferson County School District.

Atriuum offers the librarian many OPAC themes, several are ideal for the Pre-K through 3rd grade library user. Book Systems consulted with teachers, librarians, curriculum coordinators, and kids to provide young readers with an attention-grabbing, age-appropriate searching mechanism. Atriuum is easily accessible and provides patrons with various and unique options for searching library resources. It is a powerful asset in the quest for comprehensive, reliable, and easy-to-use patron resources. Librarians commented during their training, "we are excited to begin the new school year with Atriuum".

"We are simply delighted with the merits of the Atriuum Web-based solution. It is proving to be a quantum leap over the server-based program we were using by providing total library automation, including cataloging, MARC editing, analysis, etc. Additionally, this cost-saving solution will allow all of our school media centers and the IMC to be managed and operated on a single, dedicated Windows Server," said Library Coordinator Gloria Dennard.
