On the Cutting Edge of Innovation
Glendale Library, Arts & Culture Department is pleased to announce the launch of a new Integrated Library System (ILS) during the week of May 18, 2015, to serve circulation and collection management needs. The new ILS will provide seamless access to a variety of formats: books, eBooks, audio visual, as well as subscription databases. A future release will allow Library users to benefit from eCommerce.
The ILS software is operated jointly by Glendale Library, Arts & Culture and Pasadena Public Library, allowing reciprocal borrowing of materials between the two cities. Each community can access a combined collection of close to 1.4 million items, many of which are unduplicated between the two systems. The new ILS, by Innovative Interfaces Inc., will replace the current system purchased in 2003.
