Two libraries switch to Innovative

Share this on social media:

Innovative Interfaces has announced two new customers for its Millennium integrated library management system. Aston University in the UK has chosen Innovative’s platform, including the Innovative Electronic Resource Management module, to replace the library's current DS Galaxy system.

‘We chose Millennium because it was the most user-friendly of the systems that we looked at for both customers and library staff. The inclusion of functionality that our users expect from sites such as Google, such as Did you mean…?, was a key factor in our decision,’ commented Nick Smith, director of library and information services at Aston.

Pratt Institute in the USA has also chosen the Millennium platform. The library is migrating from a Dynix Horizon system maintained by SirsiDynix.

‘Pratt Institute Libraries need a library technology solution that is easy enough to use that, with good training, the staff can take to the product and understand why it operates the way it does, and see the big picture of what goes on the library,’ said Patricia Cutright, director of libraries.
