Testimonials in Support of Libhub Initiative Sponsorship Announcement
“It’s time to reveal to the Web what we at Atlas Systems and our customers have known all along; libraries are rich, living knowledge environments. We have worked for years with libraries to make management of their resources easier and more streamlined and they have given us good insights into what they need. Libraries want to meet their communities at the place most of them visit each day — the Web. Atlas believes that the Libhub Initiative is an important first step toward allowing libraries to weave their resources and services into mainstream search results in order to provide Web users the highest level of access.”
“Increasingly we see our role as one of fulfillment. As libraries become more visible on the Web a cycle of awareness, interest, request, and fulfillment is created. With ILLiad for resource sharing, Ares for electronic reserves, and Aeon for special collections management Atlas completes the cycle for the Visible Library.”
– Jason Glover, President, Atlas Systems
