With 1100 implementations worldwide, EOS customers will join SirsiDynix customers to create the largest and most inclusive customer base in the history of the library automation industry. Bill Davison, CEO of SirsiDynix, commented, “With this acquisition, we’re demonstrating our ongoing commitment to the library industry. We will continue to invest in the people, technologies and products necessary to develop, distribute, and support the dynamic solutions that libraries need to be successful. We’re now even more capable of delivering exceptional products on a global scale with the precise features that each library requires.” (via SirsiDynix.com)
“A new partnership between EBSCO and EOS International, a leader in cloud computing library automation software, brings more choice to libraries looking for a discovery solution. A joint development schedule will enable more tightly integrated access between EBSCO Discovery Service™(EDS) and EOS International’s suite of ILS systems benefiting mutual customers and continuing EBSCO’s partnership initiatives.
Providing access to EDS’s unified index will expand the quality and amount of content available for EOS users, adding the enhanced features and functionality available from EDS. The partnership offers library end users a choice of interfaces to begin their research creating an intuitive unified search experience.” (via EBSCO)
On October 30th, I will be doing a quickie 5-10 talk about RSS at the EOS International Luncheon Seminar. We use EOS for cataloging/OPAC at one of our clients and have built a strong relationship with them. I’m thrilled to be doing this for the EOS folks.
I hope to see you there as well.
