August 21, 2013 -- Emeryville, CA. Oakland Public Library and Monterey Public Library in California and East Lansing Public Library in Michigan have selected SkyRiver, Innovative's comprehensive cataloging service offering unprecedented record quality and ease of use.
Oakland Public Library and Monterey Public Library are migrating to SkyRiver from OCLC's Connexion. East Lansing Public Library had not been using a full-service cataloging utility. All three libraries cited SkyRiver's easy-to-use interface and high-quality records as reasons for choosing SkyRiver.
"Welcoming three new public libraries to the SkyRiver network of users underscores Innovative's commitment to the SkyRiver product and service," says Christopher Le Blanc, Senior Vice President of Global Sales at Innovative. "Each new library partner reminds us of the value of choice that SkyRiver brings to the market, and we look forward to continuing to offer this quality choice."
