Atlas Systems, the leading provider of time-saving solutions for libraries, special collections, and archives has announced an expansion of their partnership with Zepheira to enhance the development and delivery of their Web Visibility Services.

The Houston Area Library Automated Network, better known as HALAN, is a Texas consortium serving Houston and the East Central region.
