|New Online Catalog Coming May 15! |
The regional library is overseeing the transition to a new integrated library system (ILS) in May 2014. The decision to change the system that runs the online catalog was made jointly by all three county library systems in Southern Maryland. After months of exploration, research and a request for proposal, Polaris Library Systems was awarded the contract in November.
