Open Text To Demonstrate Latest ECM Solutions for Libraries at SLA Conference



    Federal Reserve Bank of New York and Open Text Conduct Joint Presentation
    on the Challenges of Integrating Access to Diverse Content Types in
    Libraries

    CHICAGO, June 5 /CNW/ - Open Text(TM) Corporation (NASDAQ:   OTEX, TSX:
OTC), the largest independent provider of enterprise content management (ECM)
software and solutions, today announced that it will be exhibiting the latest
in ECM solutions for libraries and participating in a key presentation on how
libraries can integrate access to their physical collections with access to
the growing range of digital content at the upcoming Special Libraries
Association (SLA) 2007 Conference, June 3-5 in Denver, Colorado.
    Libraries face unique challenges with the explosion of online information
and Web-based technologies. The difficulty is providing easy, centralized
access to this growing array of content, in both electronic and physical
forms. What libraries need are software solutions that can manage and provide
a consolidated point of access to all types of content. With this integrated
approach, libraries can build and manage hybrid collections where books and
journals, coexist with documents, images, archival content, electronic
resources, and even media.
    Kyla Whitt, Law Library Administrator at Federal Reserve Bank of New
York, which utilizes Open Text's library solutions, and Carol Knoblauch, who
leads Open Text's solutions for libraries, gave a joint presentation on
integrating access to library collections at SLA, June 3, which they will
present again during a webinar following the conference, on June 26th. The
presentation focuses on how the Law Library has been able to integrate access
to content through its Online Patron Access Catalog (OPAC)
    According to Whitt, "Today's online world, with Google and other
resources, has created more demanding users for libraries. They want faster
access to accurate and meaningful information. We created OPAC to address
these challenges and provide more complete access to information so that users
have an easier time finding what they need. Using the system, for example,
users can not only retrieve a catalog record, they can also view and search
the full-text of digital content attached to a record. Patrons searching for
books can retrieve the full table of contents, introduction and preface; they
can search, download and print the full text of government documents."
    Whitt points out that OPAC serves a dual function, serving as a central
place for online research and acting as a secure, long term repository for its
diverse and growing collection of digital resources.
