"Previously our members could only connect with the system while on site at the library, so they were unable to search for collection materials or view account data while at home," said Linda Burdayron, Division Chief, Library and Cultural Services, City of Dorval. "With Infor V-smart, we can appeal to a new generation of library members through the solution's collaborative user interface, sophisticated search functionality and personalized online environment that can be utilized from any location."
