Relais International is pleased to announce that the New Brunswick Public Library Service (NBPLS) has selected Relais as their ILL management and Document Delivery system. Relais ILL will allow NBPLS staff to manage the resource sharing for all the public libraries throughout the province of New Brunswick. The system will be hosted by NBPLS at their offices in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
The System will include the Relais Access web-based pages that allow library patrons to create and monitor their own ILL requests in the official language of their choice (French or English). Staff will use a new and enhanced web-based interface to process ILL requests in the official language of their choice. The system includes the fully integrated Relais Scanning Module for seamless electronic delivery of items to patrons and to other libraries.
The New Brunswick Public Library System provides access to a provincial collection of more than 1.8 million items, as well as to programs and services ranging from story hour to public lectures to services such as reference, Inter-Library loan and public access workstations. These programs and services are designed to respond to the educational, informational, cultural and recreational needs of residents of the province.
Clare MacKeigan, COO of Relais International, says "we are extremely pleased to welcome the New Brunswick Public Library Service and their staff to our extensive family of customers in Canada and in particular in the Atlantic Provinces." We are expecting that NBPLS will go "live" with Relais ILL in the summer 2009.
