Technology to ease library search bumps. It is a slow news day in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. I can tell because my library got featured on the front page of the local newspaper today. The Morning Sun has this article which explains some of the recent innovations we have implemented here including a new document delivery system and our link resolver.
I like free publicity like this. It is also nice to see library staff such as Krista Graham, Anne Marie Casey, and Pat Barbour quoted in the paper.
From the site:
In the information age, access to information is only one part of the equation.
Speed and ease of access also are critical to meeting the demands of the modern consumer.
Central Michigan University's Charles V. Park Library is meeting those demands with two new programs that are designed to remove some of the roadblocks in the information superhighway.
ILLiad, a new interlibrary loan system that debuted March 6, and Find It!, a new tool for searching the library's collections that opened on Feb. 20, will move both systems to a more Web-based approach, according to university officials.
