Sefton Libraries partners with PTFS Europe to give customers better access to books and e-content

The people of Sefton have immediate access to a wealth of information using brand new technology as Sefton Libraries launched the new Library Engagement Platform, Aspen today. Aspen provides the people of Sefton with better access to books and electronic content. This pioneering, open-source discovery software is the first new platform of its type in years and is supported and hosted by PTFS Europe.

Aspen is a web based system that works on any device and provides easy access for library users to discover books, e-books, magazines etc as well as finding new content from partner websites and the Sefton local history collection. Library users can also renew items on loan, reserve items and have their own tailored recommendations.

Andrew Farthing, Localities Team Manager at Sefton Libraries said: 

Aspen takes our library service lightyears ahead by combining our own multiple websites to provide a seamless library online offer. But it’s so much more than that, it gives us the opportunity to tailor our search functions towards whatever key objectives an organisation has. For us, this means Aspen provides referrals to support services for residents in need of help, simply by them looking for a book on our catalogue – how amazing is that! The fact that Aspen can be tailored to upload specific content automatically is a real saver of staff time and we use this to automatically show newly arrived stock when it first arrives on the shelves. When we do want to refresh content, it’s as simple as using on a drop- down menu. This product has taken us 20 years ahead of where we were in one simple click.


Fiona Borthwick, Head of Sales and Account Management at PTFS Europe, said:

We are absolutely delighted that Sefton Libraries have chosen to implement the Aspen Library Engagement Platform, and we are very excited to be working with this revolutionary software. It will greatly enhance the library service by offering the users a first class searching experience. It is fantastic to see that the library has also created several web pages within the platform to give their users a “one-stop shop” for the library services. The people of Sefton will have access to all these resources and services from a simple, single interface and they will discover the benefits of being a member of Sefton libraries. The library service has been a Koha customer since 2015 and is one of the first to adopt Aspen in the UK.

The Aspen Library Engagement Platform is a cloud application providing library users with a state of the art front-end to the Koha library management system. Library borrowers can search the catalogue and access their own library account where they have full ‘My Account’ functionality and a lot more.

The library can create curated collections, placards and collection spotlights to highlight specific areas of interest and direct the users to additional resources. In addition to all of this, Aspen also offers web builder functionality which allows the library to use the system to easily create their own web presence.

David Hepworth, Digital Development Manager at Newcastle City Libraries said: 

We work closely with PTFS who provide our Library Management System, in Newcastle we are early adopters of new Tech and jumped at the chance to work with PTFS to deliver this platform through Newcastle Libraries.  Not only does it provide customers with information about what items we have available to borrow, but provides rich, colourful and enhanced search results from multiple-sources making research easier and more rewarding, and allowing people to stumble on information and make connections that they might not have done without this platform. We badged the platform as Discover | Newcastle libraries – we hope that that name encourages customers to use it to not just find books but to discover a wider world of knowledge, learning and adventure.


Fiona Borthwick, Head of Sales and Account Management at PTFS Europe, said:

We are absolutely delighted that Newcastle Libraries have chosen to implement the Aspen Library Engagement Platform and we are very excited to be working with this revolutionary software.

IAML UK & Ireland chooses Koha open source library management system, hosted and supported by PTFS Europe.

The UK & Ireland Branch of the International Association of Music Libraries, Archives and Documentation Centres – IAML (UK & Irl) – has chosen Koha as its new Library Management System, to replace the previous Mikromarc system. Locating performance materials is a major challenge for many orchestras and choirs.  IAML (UK & Irl) has taken a major step forward in helping such groups, with the launch of the refreshed Encore21 service. 

Encore21 contains information about the library locations of about 92,844 borrowable sets of orchestral and vocal music. The catalogue data is in MARC21, the international library record exchange format. There are 102 participating libraries, of which approximately two thirds are public libraries. The catalogue is used typically by libraries seeking to borrow material from other libraries using the well-established inter-library loan service (ILL), as well as by musical groups such as choirs, orchestras and bands.

PTFS Europe implemented the new system and will provide on-going hosting and support services to IAML (UK & Irl) to ensure its success in supporting these collections into the future.

Koha Library Management System

The Koha library management system is a cloud application providing staff and student users with browser access to the system.

The Koha online catalogue offers end users excellent search capabilities together with a full range of personalisation services.  Koha’s depth of functionality continues to develop to meet the changing needs of libraries and their users.

Caroline Shaw, Chair of the Encore21 Migration Project Working Group, said
 

We are very pleased that the Encore21 service is entering its next phase with a Koha implementation. From early on in the project, Koha looked like the best solution for IAML (UK & Irl) and Encore21, and Encore21 users have confirmed that with their very positive feedback. We are happy with how PTFS Europe have been able to configure Koha for our needs, and we are excited about possibilities for the future.

  Jonathan Field, Managing Director at PTFS Europe, said

We are delighted that IAML (UK & Irl) has chosen Koha and we welcome them as new customers. Koha has a number of features which make it uniquely suitable for libraries specialising in music.

They also join our growing base of Koha customers from across the UK and Europe who are hosted and supported by PTFS Europe.

RNN Group chooses Koha open source library management system, hosted and supported by PTFS Europe

London, 22 April 2021

The RNN Group (Rotherham College, North Notts College, and Dearne Valley College) has chosen Koha as its new library management system, to replace the previous AutoLib Software Systems solution. PTFS Europe implemented the new system and will provide on-going hosting and support services.

Koha Library Management System

The Koha library management system is a cloud application providing staff and student users with browser access to the system. The system comprises core modules: acquisitions with EDI, circulation, cataloguing, serials and comprehensive reporting functionality. The Koha online catalogue offers end users excellent search capabilities together with a full range of personalisation services. Koha’s depth of functionality continues to develop to meet the changing needs of libraries and their users.

We chose Koha because it will offer our students and staff a much-enhanced experience when interacting with our online library service.
Koha is a modern, browser-based library management system which has a clear fit with our strategic shift towards blended learning in the college group. Koha enables students to sign in with their college Google account, which makes it easy and simple for them to check which books they have out, renew and reserve items. The interface is very straightforward and accessible, and will make it much easier for students of all abilities to find the content they need in our libraries (whether online or physical). We particularly like the ability to browse bookshelves virtually, which is very helpful as we have had to restrict physical access to the libraries this year due to Covid-19.

The Koha system will also enable us to introduce many other improvements in the future, such as integration with self-service issuing machines and more focused communications with learners. We found the team at PTFS to be knowledgeable, flexible and easy to work with, and we look forward to working with them more in future. We are very excited to be introducing this new service at RNN Group!

RNN Group is delighted to be able to offer our students and staff a better online service that supports our goals as a Group to offer blended learning. This is a really positive step to integrate more online resources as part of our offer to enable students and staff.

Ray Harper, Head of Library Services

We are delighted that the RNN Group has chosen to work with us, and we welcome them as new customers. A growing number of Further Education institutions are seeing the benefit of this open source library systems platform. They also join our growing base of Koha customers, particularly in the FE sector, from across the UK and Europe who are hosted and supported by PTFS Europe.
