Greenville County Library System Honored with InnoVision Technology Award
Congratulations to the Greenville County Library System on winning the 2012 InnoVision Technology Award for Community Service! This award recognizes an organization for establishing and/or supporting innovative, technology-based projects and programs that improve the quality of life for an Upstate or Greater Midlands community. With the implementation of Innovative Interfaces’ Millennium and Encore products, the Library revolutionized the experience of Library users–allowing them to discover new information within our vast collection–by consolidating library products from multiple delivery platforms into one easily usable catalog.
Innovative Interfaces’ Millennium and Encore products utilize a catalog search method (similar to Google) that produces a list of items in various formats along with select database articles, eBooks, government documents, images and more. With this technology, patrons’ catalog search results also include related Library programs. For example, a search for a book on ‘computers’ will return library materials on computers, database articles about computers and upcoming library programs related to computers, such as computer literacy classes offered at multiple Library locations as well as a recent series of Employment Readiness programs.
