Austin, Texas – February 26, 2014 – Biblionix, a leading provider of automation solely for public libraries, today announced that its Apollo integrated library system (ILS) has topped LibraryWorks' (http://libraryworks.com/) massive "2015 Library Purchasing Survey" in the IT/Automation category. The survey ranked 46 such companies.

The survey illustrates how libraries budget for and spend on automation, print and non-print media, professional services, furniture, equipment and supplies, and shelving for their facilities. It has 182 pages and 194 charts and tables. Data was compiled in November 2014 and released on January 15, 2015

"Custom-driven Apollo continues to win accolades. That's all 3 current reviews that rank us above all others," said Clark Charbonnet, founder and principal of Biblionix. "This is a humbling record that stems from our deeply engrained culture of pleasing and partnering with customers."

The other 2 awards are Modern Library Awards, Platinum level and Marshall Breeding's "Perceptions" survey.

Apollo ILS has recently received two major enhancements:

  • Totally new responsive public catalog that is receiving rave reviews
