Jan. 15, 2014 - SALT LAKE CITY -- In December of 2013 Alexandria Library Automation Software (Alexandria) customers may take advantage of all the benefits TABvue has to offer with added functionality. TABvue integration is one of the many features that is offered by Alexandria at no additional cost, and each current Alexandria customer is issued a PIN number which gives them the ability to explore the benefits. The integration allows for a streamlined communication between the customer, Alexandria, and TABvue.

TABvue is a content delivery service that offers complimentary access to quality eBook resources geared towards students in grades K-8. These eBooks can be fully previewed, purchased, and read online in your default browser without special software. The feature that sets TABvue apart from the competition is that every purchased eBook can be accessed simultaneously by multiple users within the customer's library system, anywhere, on any device with web access.

TABvue is offering a free MARC record of any eBook purchased to Alexandria customers. When an Alexandria customer purchases titles from TABvue, these titles will become available and automatically appear in Alexandria Researcher without any further steps.

"A common issue that we're hearing from our customers and prospective customers is that of budget. They ask, ‘What can Alexandria offer to keep me up-to-date while exploring the world of eBooks without raising concern over the cost?' I would say that our TABvue integration is a great place to start," says Bill Schjelderup, owner of COMPanion Corporation. "We are trying to bridge the gap between our current library media to what we could possibly expect in the future. With our customer's suggestions as well as plenty of trend research, we are bringing the best possible product in library automation to our customers."

Alexandria is used in thousands of libraries worldwide since 1987, from single libraries to school districts of over 350. They have built a happy, strong, and loyal customer base through listening, understanding, and adding functionality to fit their needs. Live technical support is offered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for product users.
