50th Anniversary Spotlight: Annette H. Murphy

Celebrating 50 Years of TLC: An Ode to our Co-founder, Annette H. Murphy

As we look back on the last 50 years of The Library Corporation, it’s only natural to reflect on the visionary behind it all: Annette H. Murphy. Her unwavering dedication, pioneering spirit, and profound love for libraries have left an indelible mark on not only TLC, but the entire library profession.

In an era where change is the only constant, TLC has stood steadfast in its commitment to libraries. From its inception in 1974, the company’s mission has been clear: to provide unparalleled services and products tailored exclusively for the library community. This dedication to libraries remains the top priority, even as the world around us evolves.

Central to TLC’s ethos is its emphasis on superior customer service. Mrs. Murphy’s vision of fostering a familial atmosphere within the company has ensured that TLC remains more than just a vendor; it’s a trusted partner. Libraries know they can rely on TLC for both cutting-edge technology and for the unwavering support of a dedicated team.

Over the past five decades, TLC has been at the forefront of library innovation, constantly adapting to emerging trends and technologies. From pioneering the use of CD-ROMs for record searching to offering the first online public access catalog (PAC), TLC has consistently pushed the boundaries to empower libraries and the communities they serve.

When asked about her proudest moments, Mrs. Murphy’s response reflects the breadth of TLC’s contributions to the library profession. The company began its tenure in the industry with milestones like MARCfiche and BiblioFile, and progressed to the revolutionary integrated library systems (ILS) and online PAC. Each product represents the transformative leap forward for libraries worldwide.

TLC has embarked on a year-long celebration of its achievements, marked by sparkling cider toasts, the launch of a new online merchandise store, a reception at PLA, and a variety of events that serve as a testament to TLC’s enduring commitment to its employees, customers, and the broader library community. Yet, it’s clear that Mrs. Murphy’s vision extends far beyond just the festivities. 

Looking ahead to the next 50 years, Mrs. Murphy’s boundless ambition and belief in the power of imagination offer a glimpse into what the future may hold. Her prediction: “What you will see in the next 50 years depends on whether or not we listen to the dreamers and people with great imaginations.” In a world where the imaginings of far-out dreamers become reality, TLC’s role as a catalyst for change and innovation is more distinct than ever. Annette H. Murphy is a true trailblazer in the world of libraries.

Remaining a change agent is vital to staying ahead of the technology curve. In Mrs. Murphy’s own words: “If you don’t have enough confidence, you let others intimidate you.” TLC remains unintimidated as we celebrate our extraordinary 50-year journey and confidently continue to provide stability, excellence, and unparalleled service. 

Cheers to the next 50 years of innovation, collaboration, and unwavering dedication to libraries everywhere. Happy anniversary, TLC!

TLC’s ITS•MARC Cataloging Service Receives Another Platinum Award

The Library Corporation (January 11, 2024) —  The Library Corporation (TLC) is honored to receive another platinum distinction for ITSMARC in LibraryWorks’ tenth annual Modern Library Awards (MLAs). With access to over 82.9 million records, including both bibliographic and authority records, TLC’s online copy cataloging has provided a noteworthy alternative to records provided directly from the book vendor.

TLC is celebrating 50 years of delivering quality solutions to libraries worldwide since introducing a source of MARC records on microfiche in 1974. Since then, TLC has been a leader in metadata, with its cataloging services getting better every year. After partnering with additional library contributors to grow its copy cataloging service in 2022, TLC is honored that this improvement has culminated in a platinum MLA for the second year in a row.

“This product has saved us a lot of time and money,” shared one anonymous judge. “It has saved us staff time for sure but it also has enabled us to stop purchasing MARC records from our book vendors. It is also super easy to use and has a modern interface.”

The MLAs were created to recognize top products and services in the library industry in a truly unbiased format. Products and services were submitted in the fall of 2023 and sent to the LibraryWorks database of more than 80,000 librarians at public, K-12, academic, and special libraries.

Only customers with experience using ITSMARC in their libraries were permitted to judge, resulting in a truly unbiased score. Each judge scored the library management system on a numeric basis from 1-10 on a series of questions regarding functionality, value, customer services, etc. 

The resource scored highest in the following categories:

  • Quality of the service delivered by TLC: 9.56
  • Satisfaction with TLC, the company providing ITSMARC: 9.33

ITSMARC is an ILS-agnostic service that draws its records from 23 separate databases, including voluntarily contributed records from public libraries, school libraries, and consortia across the country.

Another anonymous judge shared: “Using ITSMARC has allowed me to get the most descriptive cataloging of new materials added to our library collection. Any time I have needed assistance in the past, TLC has been responsive and quick, always to my satisfaction.”

For more information and to sign up for a 90-day risk-free trial of ITSMARC visit itsmarc.com or contact sales@tlcdelivers.com.

TLC Commits to Eastwick College’s Success with Library•Solution

Eastwick College has successfully completed its first academic school year using LibrarySolution from The Library Corporation (TLC) as its new integrated library system (ILS). TLC’s user-friendly interface, staff solutions, and outstanding customer support, coupled with an enthusiastic peer recommendation, swayed the library to choose TLC over other vendors after CyberTools ceased operation last year. TLC completed migration services for the library in Ramsey, New Jersey, earlier in the year.

Eastwick College has over 2,250 active students. It offers five library locations across its campuses and carries more than 14,000 physical materials.

With their previous provider closing down, Eastwick began looking for a new ILS to implement for the school year. They sought a system that would serve students and faculty efficiently while also providing effective tools for library staff. Attractive ways to spotlight their collection and outstanding customer support also made their wish list. 

The university put out a call on a listserv asking for recommendations. Among the community suggestions, TLC stood out to the director of library services at Eastwick College & the HoHoKus School, Sisalee M. Hecht, MSLIS, AHIP.

“A nearby college which offers similar programs to ours had recently switched over to TLC and I was so impressed,” Hecht shared. “Our new PAC is beautiful and our students and faculty love how modern the site is. I especially love ‘the carousel’ which highlights additions to our collection. And, the customer support and implementation teams are first rate. They made our switch to TLC seamless and easy!”

“We are truly pleased to provide such attractive and usable solutions to our customers,” shared Annette Murphy, CEO at TLC. “Our customer service is unmatched, from our first engagements, through implementation, and our continued support for years to come. The greatest compliments we receive from our customers are the recommendations for other libraries to join the TLC family.”

Ardmore Public Library (OK) Saves Time with Its New ILS from TLC

Ardmore Public Library is now using the LibrarySolution integrated library system from The Library Corporation (TLC). TLC welcomed  Ardmore to its family of libraries last fall, completing the migration services for the single-site library from its previous Polaris system. The library was able to use its Choice Partners membership to select TLC’s entirely web-based platform.

As a Choice Partners member, Ardmore Public Library (APL) could choose a new vendor which had been awarded a Choice Partners member contract through best value selection: TLC. This shortened the time needed to evaluate multiple vendors, allowing the library to bring value to its community faster.

Located in Oklahoma, approximately 100 miles due south of Oklahoma City, Ardmore Public Library serves a population of about 25,000 residents. On average, the library circulates 201,000 items per year. TLC will host the library’s database of 75,000 titles with TLC•Cloud Services, underpinned by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

With limited staffing numbers and its IT services performed through the city, the library appreciates TLC’s 100% web-based software. “We’re a small team,” said Lynnette Haggerty, Technical Services Librarian at Ardmore Public Library. “Now, we can manage it all without intervention from IT.” LibrarySolution can be accessed from any laptop or tablet, eliminating the need for City IT to be on-site for ILS-related inquiries — saving both time and money.

LibrarySolution’s web-based services will also open up more outreach opportunities in the Ardmore community, such as on-site story hours around the city and library card sign-up events. Cardholders will also benefit from the notifications offered through LibrarySolution, including text message notifications, which were unavailable in the library’s previous system. “Importance of the telephone notifications can’t be understated,” said Daniel Gibbs, Director at Ardmore Public Library. “Patrons love that.”

Other bright spots in the system include the new public catalog and dedicated kids catalog, as well as family card linking. “We love the built-in Accelerated Reader,” said Haggerty. “Before, it was time-consuming to find age-appropriate material for our younger patrons. We had to write it on the inside cover of the books.” Now, patrons and staff can find reading program information from within the online catalogs. TLC’s enhanced PAC and streamlined cataloging services assist in making items easier and faster to discover.

APL is also eager to utilize LibrarySolution mobility in the stacks by performing a live inventory. In their previous system, staff at the library had to create a list, print it, and review the list at the shelves; found items would need to be taken back to a service desk to resolve any issues. With LibrarySolution, staff at the library can resolve issues directly in the stacks, running a live inventory from a tablet or laptop. “It takes one person one day — or two days with a part-time employee,” said Haggerty.

TLC completed the migration swiftly. “It couldn’t have gone much better,” praised Gibbs. Additional compliments went to each member of the TLC team: the project manager was able to talk through every item with the library and kept the project on a smooth timeline; the implementation specialist was always available and very kind; the software trainer was solid; customer support was responsive. Haggerty said of both general and specific inquiries, “It feels like I can shoot off a question and get a quick, personable response.”

“We are pleased to provide this level of service to Ardmore Public Library and to all of our customers,” welcomed Annette Murphy, CEO of The Library Corporation. “There’s never a bad word from a new library moving to TLC.”

Middlesex School (MA) Launches TLC•Go! Mobile App

The Library Corporation (TLC) is delighted to announce its first implementation of TLC•Go! as a school library mobile app solution. At the start of the fall semester, students attending Middlesex School, an independent secondary school near Concord, Massachusetts, began accessing their favorite Warburg Library services and other school resources via Android or iOS. TLC•Go!’s seamless integration with the library’s automation system, LibrarySolution for Schools, made for a smooth implementation.

Middlesex hosts over 400 students in grades 9-12, with 70% boarding on campus. The campus library, Warburg Library, carries over 43,000 physical materials in addition to its extensive digital collection. Integrating TLC•Go! has allowed students to access titles and eResources — such as links to Sora materials — from anywhere on campus or at home, in a convenient all-in-one library app.

The app has been live for a full semester now at Middlesex. “Having the library in the palm of your hand makes it so much easier for our students to find what they are looking for,” said Jeff Smith, Director of Warburg Library. “No more jotting down call numbers on post-it notes.”

Staff at the school can customize the app from the Content Management System to update resources and announcements throughout the semester. Customizable settings in the app allow students to change the language, layout, brightness, and notifications. Native accessibility features also impact the app display for equitable access for all students.

“By fostering a lifelong love of learning and teaching crucial information literacy skills, libraries are — at their core — the heart of our academic organizations,” declared Annette Murphy, CEO of TLC. “We appreciate the opportunity to support Warburg Library’s mission and offer TLC•Go! and LibrarySolution for Schools as portals into their invaluable library services.”

To see the library app in action, search Warburg Library MX School in Google Play or the App Store. For more information on procuring your own mobile library app, please contact TLC at sales@tlcdelivers.com.
