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. Back at the beginning of 2016, this eight-library consortium was one of SD’s earliest BLUEcloud Visibility adopters. They’ve been with us through the entire process of building the Library.Link network.
Since their adoption, HALAN has tracked their stats using Google Analytics. Their numbers reflected a strong and steadily improving web presence. As recently as October, HALAN had an indexing rate of 10%, with 33,000 impressions, and 1,300 clicks. In November, however, things changed when the consortium implemented an update for BLUEcloud Visibility.
John “JR” Richardson, Zepheira VP of Library & Vendor Partnerships, is presenting at the Ontario Library Association Super Conference. His presentation, Being in the User’s Pocket and Beyond: An Update on Linked Data in Libraries is on Friday 3 February at 10:30am. If you are attending the conference we look forward to seeing you there!
