The library at the Royal Military College of Science (RMCS) has added SIRSI's Hyperion Digital Media Archive to its Unicorn Library Management System.
The library at RMCS, operated by Cranfield University through a contract for teaching and associated activities, supports the College's educational and research activities in the fields of Defense Science and Technology and Management, and has unique special collections in these areas. Hyperion was selected as the best way to offer these collections in digital form. Stephen Town, director of Information Services at RMCS, commented, "Hyperion is the critical element in our strategy to create and populate a vital learning environment."
Unicorn's WebCat Online Public Access Catalog currently provides access to the library catalog, electronic journals and a range of scientific and technical information resources. The addition of Hyperion will give desktop access to a unique collection of archive materials, image databases, learning materials and College documents.
