INWOOD, WV, March 14, 2001--TLC's automated system - the acclaimed Windows NT-based Library.Solution - has become the software of choice for all types of libraries throughout the state of South Carolina.
South Carolina libraries that have embraced Library.Solution total 22 sites with over 200 workstations. One library system, Allendale-Hampton-Jasper Regional Library, recently installed 43 workstations in its five sites, with software, support and training.
Another library, Harvin Clarendon County Library, will install Library.Solution this summer, upgrading from Gaylord's Galaxy System. The library is located in Manning in a 6800 square foot building constructed in 1984 entirely with community funds. The community's influence is seen in the unique architectural details, such as the large round window above the entrance, which reflects their motto: Key to the Past, Guide to the Present, Window to the Future.
The acceptance of Library.Solution by libraries in South Carolina comes at a time when the library industry and patrons worldwide have dramatically increased requirements for Web access to library resources.
At Harvin Clarendon, the need for greater access to library resources was an important part of their decision when choosing an automation system. Library Director Marilyn Tsirigotis commented, "An Internet based system gives us an added level of service and we will be able to serve even the outlying areas of the county."
Continued Ms. Tsirigotis, "We chose TLC primarily because of it's reputation for customer and technical support. I did my research and talked with Library.Solution customers and outstanding customer support was always reported."
Library.Solution is a fully turnkey automation solution that creates a more enjoyable and comprehensive library experience for librarian and patron alike. This approach uniquely melds Internet linkage, a Windows NT™ operating system, Intel-compatible hardware and an Oracle™ database. The result is a feature rich yet easy-to-use and administer automation system.
