TLC completes second phase of its e-resource strategy
INWOOD, WV (Jan. 23, 2013) – With the addition of OverDrive API integration into its LS2 public catalog, TLC has completed the second phase of its e-resource strategy. Last year, TLC rolled out services to provide custom full MARC records in 48 hours for OverDrive and 3M titles, and now libraries using the TLC LS2 PAC will be able to complete checkouts and place holds using the recently released API services from OverDrive, 3MTM, and Baker &’ Taylor.
“As we adapt our library system interfaces to work best on tablets and mobile devices, providing a seamless experience for users to search and retrieve e-resources is critical for any library worried about meeting the future demands of their patrons,” said Gar Sydnor, TLC’s Vice President of Sales. “Now using one interface, the same interface, no matter what device, our libraries and their users can search simultaneously the whole collection, including magazine databases, e-books and audiobooks, RSS feeds, and, of course, books. Patrons don’t have to hunt for the library’s e-book collection and they don’t need to leave the interface they already know and use to start a new search.”
The Library Corporation is a family-owned company founded in 1974. More than 4,400 libraries worldwide use TLC’s automation systems and software. For more information, contact Brian Brehm at bbrehm@TLCdelivers.com or 1.800.325.7759.
