Copper Coast joins the LMS consortium

After a busy week solving some last minute data issues the Kadina Community Library joined the One Card consortium yesterday. They will be followed next week by their colleagues at the Moonta School Community Library. This brings the Copper Coast libraries onto the same library management system for the first time – a great outcome for this community as they will be able to use one library card to view and access the holdings of all 3 libraries in the council – Kadina, Wallaroo and Moonta. While achieving integration is never easy and takes a lot of discussion and compromise, the benefit for customers can’t be understated. This is a major achievement for all concerned – congratulations to Lynn Spurling and the Copper Coast team!

From all accounts the Kadina launch went well with only a few minor glitches to sort out including a mad search for some lost keys. What’s a launch day without with a couple of moments to get the heart racing?

I’ve included some photos below of Kadina’s celebrations and will share more from Moonta next week.
