“Our Library got 3x footfalls, 4x Enquiries and 10x the Books in our OPAC. This had a Force Multiplier effect on everything: Research, Publications & Scores

With this abundance of information at the click of a button, our entire way of looking for books underwent radical transformation. The Benefits are immense – on everything – Research, particularly!
