EOS International has announced that the American Kennel Club (AKC), a non-profit organization devoted to the study, breeding, exhibiting, and advancement of purebred dogs, has selected EOS.Web in conjunction with EOS e-Library Service to maintain and advance access to their special collection. AKC plans to use EOS.Web Indexer and EOS.Web KnowledgeBuilder modules to expand access to their traditional library materials to include AKC magazine and art collection content as well as historical information about the development of the sport of purebred dogs.
While EOS.Web can be installed locally on their own servers, AKC elected to use EOS.Web in conjunction with EOS e-Library Service in order to avoid having to handle local hardware and software IT issues. Rather than installing EOS.Web on an in-house server supported by AKC library staff, EOS.Web is hosted at the global EOS Data Center, a central data facility. Library staff and patrons can access the software on demand via a Web browser over a secure Internet connection and experience the same functionality, speed, and appearance as if it were hosted on a local library server.
EOS International is a library information management software and services provider with a client base of over 3,000 special libraries. EOS library automation software products (EOS.Web, EOS Q-Series, EOS GLAS, and hosted, EOS e-Library Services) are designed to serve the knowledge and content management needs of corporate, legal, medical, government, and special libraries.
