It was another gainful day for those who attend the three-day seminar- workshop, organized by the Association of Special Libraries of the Philippines (ASLP), last May 6-8, 2009 at Sampaguita Gardens Resort, Poblacion, New Washington, Aklan. This year’s theme is “Collection Management: Current Trends, Practices and Future Directions”.

As part of our commitment to a good service for Philippine libraries, providing them new technology to cater their library needs, EISI who came as an exhibitor once again was given a chance to present our newest products. First, the Follett’s Destiny Library Manager software, a totally web-based library automation and educational asset management software for consortia and multiple campuses with all functions like OPAC, cataloging, circulation, inventory, reports and others requiring no more than a web browser. Also, the Follett’s Cir/Cat (Circulation Plus, Cataloging Plus and Web Collection Plus) that includes a fully integrated database accessible from the different modules and which may be searched over the internet and all data entered are compliant with MARC 21, the standard data format for libraries. Lastly, the Inmagic information management software that organize and deliver enterprise content, seamlessly integrate internal and external content sources and deploy business critical information to corporate portals, intranets, extranets and the Web.

Thank you ASLP for trusting our products! EISI got a plaque of appreciation from this active and enthusiastic group of special librarians.
