August 18, 2008. Relais International is pleased to announce that the Massachusetts Maritime Academy has selected Relais Express. The software is designed for easy scanning and delivery of documents to patrons and to other libraries. Library staff can convert paper documents to electronic format by scanning, or they can use existing electronic documents anywhere on their network for desktop delivery to their patrons or other institutions. Delivery can be done via FTP to Ariel, Odyssey, Post to Web, Email attachment, or fax. Relais Express also receives electronic documents from Ariel and Odyssey.
Located on Cape Cod, the mission of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy is to graduate educated men and women to serve the maritime industry as licensed officers or to serve the transportation, engineering, environmental, and industrial interests of the Commonwealth and the Nation.
