Endeavor Information Systems has announced that the Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology (CPIT), Christchurch, New Zealand selected three Endeavor systems for increased access to library information. CPIT chose the Voyager integrated library management system to replace their current locally developed ILS. For digital library management, CPIT selected the ENCompass system for managing, searching, and linking collections and the LinkFinderPlus OpenURL-enabled link resolver for bridging the gap between citations and online full-text of articles.
Christchurch is a vocational and technical training institution in the South Island of New Zealand. Two libraries serve the needs of 28,000 students making up 6,200 full time equivalent enrolments across four campuses. The Library and Learning Services centers hold over 73,000 items to serve the Institute's technical, bachelor, and graduate degree programs, which have equal status to New Zealand university qualifications.
