Endeavor Adopted by Maryland Consortium, University of Toronto Library

Endeavor Information Systems has announced that the Maryland Interlibrary Consortium (MIC) is currently implementing both the Voyager integrated library management system and the ENCompass digital management and e-content access system. Endeavor has also announced that the University of Toronto Library has selected its ENCompass System.

MIC
The consortium comprises the libraries of five private colleges: Columbia Union College in Takoma Park; Hood College in Frederick; Mount St. Mary's College in Emmitsburg; and the Loyola-Notre Dame Library, which is the nation's first single academic library to serve two colleges, Loyola College and the College of Notre Dame. MIC initially formed 10 years ago to share an integrated online system. Now the consortium will also share patron and materials holdings databases and a digital library.

MIC is the first group to select both systems, yet begin implementing ENCompass before the Voyager system. ENCompass project work is already underway at MIC along with the Voyager implementation that will replace MIC's current system. The group aims to have simultaneous searching of Voyager and ENCompass available to researchers this fall.

University of Toronto Library
The University of Toronto Library has selected the ENCompass digital management system for managing e-journals and digital collections, federated searching of commercial content, and the integration of campus resources. ENCompass will serve the University of Toronto community and, through partnerships, researchers at other universities in Ontario and across Canada.
