September 27, 2010 -- Emeryville, CA. Innovative announced today that Encore has been selected by over 230 libraries in 20 countries. Its customer base includes public libraries, academic libraries, law school libraries, and consortia. Encore's success is attributable to its unique ability to bring everything a library offers to a single search-even article level results and library programs-regardless of the underlying ILS.
"Encore's broad acceptance signals that the library community has an outstanding solution to the challenge of discovery in today's complex information environment," says John McCullough, Vice President, Encore Division. "While our customers span all types of libraries and locations, Encore is providing users with the same indispensible service. Our dedicated Encore Team has also made it easy to implement Encore, while providing services such as harvesting OAI-PMH compliant metadata into Encore."
