3 April 2014: Civica Library Solutions continues its rollout of Spydus 9, the latest version of its market-leading library software, with a successful upgrade to the Ministry of Education (MOE) Library Consortium.
The MOE upgrade was the most complex to date, with 350 primary and secondary schools, 17 junior colleges and 5 language centres simultaneously going live with no disruption to the school library functions.
Students and staff right across Singapore now have access to a system which integrates traditional physical library content with e-content, and provides users with a single unified search and browse ability across traditional resources, digital media, archives and cultural collections which can be easily filtered and refined.
The overall project comprised several phases including:
Marc Nolan, managing director (International) for Civica Library Solutions, said, "To complete this major upgrade to schedule and with no disruption to school library services required a highly collaborative effort between the MOE and Civica teams. This true partnership approach is how Civica manages the MOE full library outsourcing project and why it has been a long term success. The Spydus 9 upgrade will further increase the value of libraries in Singapore's education system."
