INWOOD, WV, Nov. 13, 2008 Ė Shenandoah County Library System in Virginia is the first library to implement TLCís new search interface, LS2 PAC.
"LS2 PAC combines the best of the Web and the library world," Library Director Rob Pasco said. "Patrons can use Web 2.0 capabilities like reviews, tagging, and list sharing to interact with each other and with the library."
Patrons have shown their interest: "There has been a rush on PIN requests," Pasco said. "Iím sure that over time LS2 PAC usage will far exceed classic search usage."
Pasco and his staff appreciate LS2 PACís Book River, which uses book jacket images moving across the screen to showcase items. It's used to highlight lesser-known items in the library. "Itís a great way to inform people about books they might never know about. And itís easy to update and manage. We simply tag the items, and the Book River list is up and running," he said.
LS2 PAC is the first module of a new development platform by TLC, which features RSS result feeds, RSS indexing from popular or local Web sites, Faceted Results, Predictive Results, and Item Mapping.
