New Release confirms company as the industry's leading Library database
BARRIE, ON, June 27 /CNW/ - WebClarity Software Inc., the global leader
in standards-based search software and resource sharing for libraries is
pleased to announce the new release of BookWhere. Now with heuristic scoring
and accessibility of nearly 3000 worldwide databases, BookWhere provides the
most extensive, freely accessible directory of library resources in the
industry, and the largest open community of shared resources in the world.
Heuristic scoring improves record selection for libraries, to quickly
pinpoint high quality metadata when building or improving database access for
their patrons. "Our goal is to make BookWhere standard in every library
regardless of size or type around the world. There is no competition for our
product when you compare features and price," states Allison Standen, VP of
Business Development for WebClarity.
"We offer the best global search resource, unfiltered, with no hidden
costs," says Phil Smith, President/CEO. "We have created a new standard in
open access for libraries. BookWhere represents a growing community of
libraries that work together to significantly reduce cost redundancies
otherwise paid to record suppliers. Every library can achieve savings, improve
quality and speed up their processes in technical services with BookWhere.
Additionally, BookWhere for many technically disenfranchised libraries may
represent their only means of building access to their information resources."
WebClarity has evolved since 1997 and remains committed to the library
and information resources industry with a strong business acumen rooted in
open access principles. The 2003 change in management has led to a series of
reinvestments in the company's technology and products, with increased global
growth making it one of the top library software firms in Canada today.
WebClarity Software Inc. is a privately held Canadian software, research
and development firm dedicated to providing cataloging solutions based on the
years of work library professionals have invested in establishing the
principles of open standards and open access. Products include BookWhere(TM),
BookWhere(TM) Online, MARC NotePad for libraries and BookWhere(TM) Academic
for researchers. Their tools facilitate the interchange and management of data
between libraries, allowing libraries of all sizes to share resources, reduce
costs, and ultimately focus on their core business: serving their public in
the most cost effective, timely and high quality manner possible.
