On the Cutting Edge of Innovation

Glendale Library, Arts & Culture Department is pleased to announce the launch of a new Integrated Library System (ILS) to serve circulation and collection management needs. The new Encore Catalog provides seamless access to a variety of formats: books, eBooks, audio visual, as well as subscription databases. A future release will allow Library users to check account balances and make payments online.

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., replaced the current system purchased in 2003.
