Leander Public Library & TLC’s Library•Solution: Reunited And It Feels So Good!

The Library Corporation (TLC) continues its busy 2021 schedule with the reimplementation of LibrarySolution for Leander Public Library (LPL) in Leander, Texas. Currently a customer of TLC’s AMH and RFID company Tech Logic, LPL will be rejoining the full TLC family again. This will be Leander’s first use of LibrarySolution since 2011.

Located 30 miles north of Austin, TX, Leander offers its 60,000+ residents a blend of country life and urban metropolitan living. Leander Public Library will also be offering its borrowers a blend of TLC’s award-winning solutions: LibrarySolution and Tech Logic’s CircIT. During implementation, LPL was able to seize on TLC and Tech Logic’s shared Support and Client Services resources to immediately troubleshoot and provide solutions to the library community.

Leander will not only be utilizing LibrarySolution’s core Library Management Software applications but also TLC’s OSA acquisition module and TLC•Cloud Services. Powered by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, TLC•Cloud Services was recently awarded the 2021 Service of the Year by the Modern Library Awards.

“TLC is happy to welcome Leander Public Library back to the TLC family,” stated founder and CEO, Annette Murphy. “Libraries are continually striving to offer improved services and experiences to their communities. We appreciate Leander recognizing TLC’s commitment to supporting that mission and look forward to partnering with them for many years to come.”

Medaille College Returns to the TLC Family

Students are not the only ones returning home this summer, as Medaille College returns to The Library Corporation (TLC) for the first time since 2008. Medaille College recently implemented LibrarySolution (LS), TLC’s 100% web-based Library Management System.

Located in Buffalo and Rochester, NY, Medaille College prides itself on preparing their students for a lifelong commitment to civic sustainability and professional success through a well-rounded education that extends beyond the four walls of the classroom. “Buffalo’s College,” Medaille has over 2,000 students and offers undergraduate and postgraduate programs.

After using III during their TLC “sabbatical,” Medaille College returns to TLC using a completely different LibrarySolution platform than the one they may have remembered: no longer client-based, no longer code-based metadata editing, a new powerful reports module powered by IBM Cognos Analytics, new cloud services powered by OCI, and so much more. Although Medaille College was a previous LS customer, they are experiencing an entirely new, modern system.

Following recommended health guidelines and TLC’s current process, the implementation and training were achieved remotely without any falter in quality. Medaille College staff commented on how smooth the transition process was.

For more information on implementing LibrarySolution, please visit TLCdelivers.com or speak to a representative at sales@tlcdelivers.com.

The Library Corporation Implements First Library•Solution Version 5.x in the Philippines

Earlier this month, Ateneo de Davao University (ADDU) upgraded their LibrarySolution library management software to version 5.6.3 — part of the next-generation 5.x series. ADDU is the first library in the Philippines using LibrarySolution Version 5.x as their Library Management System.

Ateneo De Davao University is located in Davao City in the Philippines, the most populous city in Mindanao. The University library serves approximately 6,000 students and 1,000 faculty, admin, and staff on campus, and the library system is also used by students and faculty in the area grade schools, high schools, and senior high schools.

With a wide array of borrowers using their library system, ADDU appreciates that the functionality in LibrarySolution accommodates everyone’s needs. Fretzie F. Alfaro-Fajardo, the Director for Libraries and AV Center of ADDU, said the library staff and their patrons are very happy because of the system’s ease of use. Not only does the community benefit from the software’s ease-of-use, but librarians noted a distinct benefit as well with improved access to the platform. “The web-based modules in LS5.x are ideal for our work-from-home set-up due to the pandemic,” shared Dennis Moldes, the Miguel Pro Learning Commons In-Charge.

The LibrarySolution upgrade was carefully planned and required a high-level of preparation by the library staff and TLC. Even so, the migration to version 5.x was fast and successful, and Moldes shared that the librarians encountered no major problems post-migration: “The TLC tech support was prompt in addressing our issues and concerns despite the time zone difference.” The latest upgrade also included modifications the library had requested  TLC to improve library processes.

ADDU has been a TLC customer since 2013 and was not surprised by TLC’s level of service during the upgrade. Library staff frequently take advantage of the online customer support and community portal, LSCommunity, to first check tutorials and documentation readily available to help them immediately resolve some issues before contacting support. And when librarians do need to reach out, “TLC’s technical support is commendable,” said Alfaro-Fajardo. “The library staff get a response within 24 hours after creating tickets for our concerns and issues encountered. We also receive clear and concise instructions on what to do if the issues need to be resolved on our end.”

For more information on LibrarySolution version 5.x, please reach out at sales@TLCdelivers.com or visit TLCdelivers.com/library-solution.

Frederick County Public Libraries Choose CARL

The Library Corporation (TLC) is pleased to announce that Frederick County Public Libraries (FCPL) in Frederick County, Maryland, have chosen the CARL product suite as their next generation Library Management Platform.

Located approximately 50 miles northwest of Washington, D.C., and 50 miles west of Baltimore, MD, FCPL joins their local school system, Frederick County Public Schools, as customers of TLC. The school system has been utilizing LibrarySolution since 2008. The youngest borrowers in Frederick will be pleased to find a similar user experience when they enter the public library, as both systems utilize the same framework for the young adult discovery layers.

Adult borrowers will be excited to find CARLConnect Discovery, a “game-changer” according to FCPL staff members. Not only does CARLConnect Discovery incorporate the power of FRBR, but borrowers will also be offered a more personalized experience through TLC’s recommendation feature for enhanced title suggestions.

Early in the implementation process, TLC has already shown itself incredibly responsive to FCPL’s questions and commitment to creating the best system for their borrowers. Much of this can be attributed to TLC’s staff creating an implementation schedule that is carefully organized to allow FCPL to thoughtfully plan out and become accustomed to new workflows. According to Cindy Phillips, CARL’s Implementation Manager, “TLC creates a custom implementation schedule for each new customer to be sure that both parties are informed of the steps and phases of the project. A strong plan means we stay on track and provide an outstanding migration process. We consistently receive excellent feedback from our customers on our migrations.”

“We are very excited to be joining CARL by TLC,” said Catie Hall, Associate Director of Support Services for FCPL. “We felt their system would best meet our strategic priorities of simplifying access, building bridges, and sparking excitement with our customers.” 

“TLC is happy to welcome Frederick County Public Libraries to the TLC family,” stated founder and CEO, Annette Murphy. “It’s exciting to see libraries, in spite of every curveball that 2020 could possibly throw at them, continually strive to offer improved services and experiences to their communities. Libraries are TLC’s community and we are committed to doing the same.”

Westminster Public Library Extends Community
Outreach with NovelBranch from TLC•SmartTECH

The Library Corporation (TLC) is pleased to announce the successful implementation of TLC•SmartTECH’s NovelBranch mini library kiosk in collaboration with the Westminster Public Library (WPL) in Westminster, CO, at two local recreation centers. The library has been delighted to extend community outreach with the NovelBranch units, providing circulating library materials through an easy-to-use, self-service kiosk.

Located just northwest of Denver in Jefferson and Adams counties, WPL has launched the NovelBranch kiosks within the lobbies of the Westminster City Park Fitness Center and the West View Recreation Center. The library worked closely with staff at both TLC•SmartTECH and the rec centers to coordinate and fully install the library machines during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to provide additional library service to the Westminster community beyond the library walls.

The units have been a popular option for Canadian libraries and community centers since 2003, and WPL is one of the first libraries to go live with the NovelBranch in the United States. “It has been excellent working with the staff at Westminster Public Library to bring the NovelBranch kiosks into their community, into Colorado, and into the country,” said Rhia Stark, Digital Engagement Manager at TLC and acting project manager through the WPL NovelBranch installation. “Their community has already started to share in the excitement, and we look forward to seeing their continued outreach success.”

The library has been pleased to be on the forefront of this innovation and has marveled at the simplicity and ease of use of the machine. “I’ve been astounded,” stated Jean Ward, Application Specialist at Westminster Public Library, “you turn it on, and it just works.” 

Veronica Smith, Technology Coordinator at Westminster Public Library, shared the sentiment: “This is so perfect! It’s self-contained and we don’t need someone there every hour the rec center is open.”

The library has branded their NovelBranch units as the Rec & Read to highlight the outreach partnership created through the process, and as an easy to remember tagline for library and rec center patrons. The City of Westminster will be celebrating an official launch of the Rec & Read kiosks in June to coincide with Free Fitness Week at the recreation centers and the start of the library’s annual Summer Reading program.

For more information on the NovelBranch mini library please visit TLCSmartTECH.shop or speak to a TLC•SmartTECH representative at smarttech@tlcdelivers.com.

Lodi Public Library joined The Library Corporation’s (TLC) family of customers

Lodi Public Library recently implemented LibrarySolution™ and joined The Library Corporation (TLC) and its family of customers.

Lodi is a city located in San Joaquin County, California, just north of Stockton, California. With a population approaching 70,000 residents, Lodi may be best known for its 100,000 acres of grapes or its titular reference in a Creedence Clearwater Revival song. But to the city’s residents, its new Library Management System will also be a noteworthy advantage.

A library committed to securing for their residents a system that offers stability in addition to expanding access to material, Lodi Public Library saw the potential LibrarySolution™ had to offer their community. Moving from a system that experienced constant downtime issues, Lodi Public Library felt that LibrarySolution™ offered a platform that would provide consistent service to their borrowers. During the decision-making process, many Lodi Public Library staff members noted the benefits LS2 Kids, TLC’s award-winning Kids PAC, would offer their borrowers. According to Yvette Herrera, the Library’s Circulation Manager, “Patrons are love, love, loving the PAC! Love the pictures, love the AR & Lexile integration.”

Lodi Public Library is also the first LibrarySolution™ customer to utilize INN-Reach, a resource sharing tool that allows libraries to lend and borrow resources between other libraries and systems, regardless of library management platform. “TLC is a company that prides itself on its ability to work with multiple companies,” stated TLC’s Director of Marketing Strategy, Jamison Reynolds. “The more technology options a library can offer, the better for the borrowers.”

Latest CARL Features Promote Library-Centric Workflows

The Library Corporation (TLC) develops software with an understanding of library workflows and the needs of TLC customers in mind. With the latest product release of the CARL integrated library system, TLC continues to provide features that improve operational efficiency, which can be found in CARLX™ version 9.6.8, CARLConnect Staff version 1.6.4, CARLConnect Discovery version 3.6.2.1 and CARLX™ APIs version 1.9.8.

One feature that helps librarians save time when handling items in a damaged or less-than-ideal condition is the new Damaged Items functionality in CARLConnect Staff. Library staff can mark items as Damaged, which will automatically perform the next actions for those items — remove from the patron account if checked out, change item status to Damaged, replace the hold if checking it in would have filled a hold — all in one place and with one scan.

“TLC nailed the ‘Damage’ check in,” said Wennie Fleming, the ILS Librarian of Technology Services at Loudoun County Public Library. “What was a 21 step process for staff is now simply two steps! This functionality available in both CARLX 9.6.8 and CARLConnect Staff 1.6.4 is amazing and will save tons of time for staff.” As with all CARL features, the Damaged Items page meets compliance for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act for improved accessibility.

Another favorite of TLC customers and TLC Staff is the updated Not Found functionality, now called Wander List, in CARLConnect Staff. In previous versions, items which had not been found on the shelves from the Fill List (holds pulling process) were added to the Not Found list for later handling. As items tend to wander off the shelves and out existence at the library, items not found from Fill Lists, Missing Lists, and Lost Lists can all be managed within the Wander List feature.

The latest updates now also include capabilities for library staff to withdraw or check in items directly from the Wander List, and display updated status columns and number of title holds for easy reference and convenience. As Manager for the CARL Product, Ebony Pacheco-Hoos says, “Not all items that wander are lost.” These updates allow library staff to manage wandering items with fewer clicks and fewer screens.

These latest features join others in the CARL product suite update targeted at efficient library workflows, improved technical foundations, and further Mobile version development, which was an overall priority CARL customers shared with TLC staff at the annual user conference. Additional updates include Google Analytics integration, customizable Hold Shelf Expiration days, new tokens in Message Editor, customer-requested spine label sizes, check in sounds, FRBRized title details within mobile, enhanced location settings, and reverse chronological magazine and serials displays.

To see these features for yourself, or to answer any questions you may have about CARLX™, CARLConnect Staff, CARLConnect Discovery, or the power of CARLX™ APIs, please reach out to us at sales@tlcdelivers.com or online at tlcdelivers.com/contact-tlc/#sales.

TLC Wins Dual Modern Library Award Honors

The Library Corporation has added to its impressive list of accomplishments yet again, earning multiple 2021 Modern Library Awards. TLC not only received a Gold Level Award for CARLConnect Discovery but also the highly distinguished “Service of the Year” Award for TLC•Cloud Services. The MLAs were created to recognize the top products and services in the library industry in a truly unbiased format. Only customers with experience using these products/services in their facilities were permitted to judge the products/services, resulting in a truly unbiased score.

CARLConnect Discovery, part of the CARLX™ library management platform suite, has long been recognized as one of the most patron-friendly, feature-rich discovery layers in the library industry. With an ever-evolving community of patrons, CARLConnect Discovery has always sought ways to truly innovate to meet the needs of tomorrow’s, not yesterday’s, libraries.

Recently, CARLConnect Discovery introduced FRBR/Grouped Title Displays into its Desktop and Mobile platforms. FRBR/Grouped Title Displays improves the usefulness of the catalog, alleviates sorting through multiple single results for the same title, and offers a clear view of what editions/formats are owned by the library to create a better searching experience for patrons and staff alike — all through dynamic content updates that can be influenced by library staff.

“[FRBR] just makes it so much easier for patrons to find what they want,” stated Celia Morse of The Library Network in Michigan.

TLC•Cloud Services being designated as “Service of the Year” is an incredible recognition of years of research, planning, and implementation for what has become the very best hosting platform in the library industry. Powered by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), TLC•Cloud Services offers:

  • High Performance — Combining the elasticity and utility of a commercial cloud with the granular control, security, and predictability of on-premise infrastructure, TLC customers utilizing TLC•Cloud Services expect high-performance and low latency.
  • SecurityTLC•Cloud Services incorporates integrated security services to protect data and control access using security-first design principles, including isolated network virtualization and pristine physical host deployment. This provides superior customer isolation compared to earlier public cloud designs plus reduced risk from advanced persistent threats.
  • ReliabilityTLC•Cloud Services boasts a target service uptime of 99.95%, benefiting from the high availability and redundancy capabilities of the Oracle Cloud Platform, Oracle Database Backup Service, and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage Classic to provide the utmost reliability in the industry.
  • ScalabilityTLC•Cloud Services is built upon a deep and broad platform of cloud services which enables TLC to design and build applications in a scalable, secure, highly available, fault-tolerant, and high-performance environment.

“Much like our customers and libraries across the globe, TLC faced a challenging 2020 head-on,” stated TLC founder and CEO Annette Murphy. “Instead of downsizing and taking an approach of ‘waiting out the storm,’ we continued to innovate and provide the very best service and support to our customers. To begin 2021 with this announcement is a wonderful way to start a new year and maintain a momentum of innovation as we head into a brighter future.”

The Library Corporation Receives SERVICE of the YEAR in 2021 Modern Library Awards from LibraryWorks

The Library Corporation (TLC), a leader in enterprise-level software and library automation services, is thrilled to announce it has received Service of the Year in LibraryWorks’ seventh annual Modern Library Awards (MLAs) for TLC•Cloud Services. 

The MLAs were created to recognize the top products and services in the library industry in a truly unbiased format. Products and services were submitted in the fall using a simple application and then were posted on a private site with an enhanced description and attendant materials. These products were batched into small groups 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 these products/services in their facilities were permitted to judge the products/services, resulting in a truly unbiased score. 

Each judge scored the product on a numeric basis from 1-10 on a series of questions regarding functionality, value, customer service, etc. The service with the overall highest score was awarded the coveted Service of the Year award.

“TLC’s history and legacy are built upon innovations that have improved the workflows and operations for libraries all over the world,” stated TLC’s Founder and CEO Annette Murphy. “TLC•Cloud Services, which provides the most secure, high-performance hosting platform in the library industry, is the latest addition to TLC’s family of products and services, and being awarded Service of the Year is not only a wonderful acknowledgment of the value TLC•Cloud Services adds but it is also a powerful indication to libraries that TLC is building solutions with its eyes on the future.”   

TLC•Cloud Services is a hosting platform powered by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and was released in early 2020. Advantages of TLC•Cloud Services include:

  • High Performance — Combining the elasticity and utility of a commercial cloud with the granular control, security, and predictability of on-premise infrastructure, TLC customers utilizing TLC•Cloud Services expect high-performance and low latency.

  • ScalabilityTLC•Cloud Services is built upon a deep and broad platform of cloud services which enables TLC to design and build applications in a scalable, secure, highly available, fault-tolerant, and high-performance environment.

Jenny Newman, publisher and MLA program manager, said, “It’s hardly a surprise that TLC scored so well. They’ve been at the forefront of the industry since their company entered the market in 1974 and continue to innovate to this day.”

TLC’s Family of Customers is Growing in Indiana

The Library Corporation (TLC) continues to expand its family of customers in Indiana with the recent LibrarySolution® implementation at Plymouth Public Library (PPL).

Plymouth Public Library, located 30 minutes south of South Bend, Indiana, went live in early November. Not only did Plymouth Public Library implement the core elements of LibrarySolution®, but they are utilizing some of the additional features that TLC offers with LibrarySolution®, including OverDrive integration directly into the PAC, third party integration with Unique Management for debt collection, and TLC’s HostedSolution, allowing TLC to host and maintain PPL’s data and server environment.

Following recent developments to health and safety protocols, TLC implemented the new system at PPL completely remotely. TLC has historically ensured a staff person was onsite for a customer’s “go live” and training, ensuring the very best customer service possible. Because of the efforts put in by TLC’s implementation team and PPL,  the quality of the implementation was not diminished. “Samantha was wonderful!” was a sentiment shared with TLC staff in regards to TLC’s instructor assigned to the project, Samantha Martz.

“TLC is happy to welcome Plymouth Public Library to our family,” stated founder and CEO, Annette Murphy. “It’s exciting to see libraries, in spite of every curveball that 2020 could possibly throw at them, continually strive to offer improved services and experiences to their communities. Libraries are TLC’s community and we are committed to doing the same.”
