Ponca City Library (OK) Now Using Library•Solution
Ponca City Library is now using Library•Solution as its integrated library system (ILS) from The Library Corporation (TLC). TLC completed the migration services from the Book Systems ILS for the single-site library. Before its year with Book Systems, the library had used Polaris software for many years. This Oklahoma library is also the first new TLC customer to launch TLC•Go! simultaneously, following its release late last year.
Staff at the library look forward to the benefits of the new integrated library system. “The move to TLC will bring a new online catalog, including a specially curated Kids Catalog,” shared Marcia Hull, Technical Services Librarian at Ponca City Library. LS2 Kids is designed for a library’s youngest audience, with an app-like interface for age-appropriate library browsing.
“There will also be a new app, which is available now,” continued Hull. With TLC•Go!, the Ponca City community can access the library catalog and view library news from anywhere. Staff at the library can customize the app from its Content Management System.
Library staff at Ponca City Library appreciate the online acquisitions model offered by TLC. This database of leading library vendors provides support for selection, ordering, and receiving. Integration with the catalog helps determine if titles are already owned by the library.
Families in the community will value new functionality for linked accounts across a single household. Each family member maintains their own barcode and loan policies. However, borrower information can link to a responsible party (parent/guardian) for seamless hold pick-up.
TLC CEO, Annette Murphy, welcomed the library to the TLC family: “We are pleased to offer outstanding and unparalleled support to our newest Oklahoma library, Ponca City Library. They can expect the same level of service we provide to all our valued library partners.”
Located roughly 100 miles north of Oklahoma City, Ponca City is home to approximately 24,000 residents. TLC will host the library’s 71,000 titles with TLC•Cloud Services, underpinned by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
