August 14, 2009. Emeryville, CA. Innovative announced today that eleven academic libraries across Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America have gone live with Encore: Andrews University (MI), British Columbia Institute of Technology (Canada), Cal Poly Pomona (CA), Chinese University of Hong Kong, Cooperating Libraries in Consortium (MN), Chulalongkorn University (Thailand), Hong Kong Polytechnic University (China), St. Edward's University (TX), Universidad de Cadiz (Spain), University of Tulsa (OK), and University of Wollongong (Australia).
The Encore discovery services platform (www.encoreforlibraries.com) transforms how users uncover the rich and varied resources the library has to offer by uniting content, community, and discovery. No matter which ILS a library uses—or its level of development resources or staff expertise—Encore provides a reliable solution that makes it easy to offer the latest information technologies. At its core is the Encore Framework developed using modern, Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) software design principles. The Framework supports a suite of robust applications and Web Service offerings that can be tailored to meet the needs of any library. What's more, Encore Services provides a dedicated "Pit Crew" that backs the product with single-day, in-library installation, hosted options (SaaS), and more. With Encore, it's all right here.
