On August 17, 2013 Tidewater Community College and the City of Virginia Beach opened a Joint Use Library on the Virginia Beach campus that serves as both the campus library and a branch of the city library system. Using a custom interface from TechLogic, not only can users in the building check out materials from TCC's Aleph system and the VBPL's SIRSI Symphony system in one 'seamless' transaction, but any patron of one institution can use any branch of the other institution to checkout and return materials from either system. Previous ELUNA presentations have described the less-than-seamless 5 year process to develop this 'seamless' interface. Now hear about the countdown to implementation,see the system at work, and learn about some unexpected positive outcomes.
