Innovative Interfaces Inc. (III), developer of the Millennium ILS and next-generation Sierra Services Platform among other discovery and automation solutions, this month announced a partnership with Bibliotheca, the global RFID, EM/RFID hybrid and barcode-based library solutions supplier. Both companies describe the partnership as a strategic alliance that will enhance the integration of their respective software and hardware products.
Library technology solutions provider Bibliotheca has announced that Al Coalla, formerly North American sales director, will assume the role of president of the company’s North American divisions beginning October 1. Coalla will be responsible for Bibliotheca’s operations throughout the Americas region, taking the reins from Shai Robkin, who has requested to step down from his position, according to the announcement.
Although many details have yet to be worked out, Bibliotheca’s fledgling ebook division has attracted some strong library talent and is aspiring to a national ebook solution for libraries.
