Dorval Public Library users can now access collections online with new state-of-the-art search functionality.
The library has implemented the Infor V-smart web-based integrated library system to help deliver next-generation services to library users and improve access to both digital and traditional collections.
"Previously, our members could only connect with the system while onsite at the library, so they were unable to search for collection materials or view account data while at home," said Linda Burdayron, division chief, Library and Cultural Services, city of Dorval. "With Infor V-smart, we can appeal to a new generation of library members through the solution's collaborative user interface, sophisticated search functionality and personalized online environment that can be utilized from any location."
The Dorval Public Library is in Dorval, a city of 18,600 residents near Montreal, Quebec. Dorval is a bilingual city with an almost equal number of English and French-speaking residents.
Infor V-smart is available in multiple languages, allowing both English and French-speaking library members and staff to use the system. Dorval Public Library patrons gain quick online access to the library's diverse bilingual collections and a range of interactive options to manage account information and loans.
The solution enables improved management of collections through flexible data formats, delivering a rich discovery environment for library users. Infor V-smart delivers efficiency across core library functions including circulation, cataloguing, acquisitions, serials management, and reporting. Infor V-smart also provides easy integration with external resources such as subscription databases and e-books.
