INWOOD, WV, Dec. 11, 2008 Ė Huntingdon County Library (PA), Russell County Public Library (KY), and Lebanon-Wilson County Library (TN) have recently opted to upgrade from Follettís Winnebago Sagebrush Spectrum system to Library.Solution, TLCís integrated library system.
"Weíre really looking forward to this," Nancy Holland, Director of Huntingdon County Library, said. "You have no idea. Iím tired of dealing with a school-oriented system ... and Iím a public library. Everyone I talk to about TLC says they just 'get it.' TLC has a product for what we do in the public library arena. These are products and services we can use that look wonderful."
Russell County Public Library Information Technology Librarian Kimberly Taylor said her library upgraded because the previous system was "outdated. It just didnít have enough capabilities for what weíre trying to do. We wanted to enhance our patron services." Ms. Taylor noted that Library.Solution offers more technological advances than the other systems the library considered.
Russell County will also implement the Library.Solution LS2 PAC search interface, because, Ms. Taylor said, "itís patron friendly and customizable. Patrons can take advantage of its community features."
"We canít wait to get started with Library.Solution," she said. "TLC has bent over backward to help us and to facilitate our transition."
