Libraries Achieve Unlimited Discoverability with Complete Integrated Library Systems

Verona, WI – December 10, 2020 – Mitinet Library Services, a leader in metadata management and developer of the multi-award winning BestMARC, and COMPanion Corporation, a pioneer in educational software and developer of Alexandria Integrated Library System (ILS), are excited to announce a powerful integration within Alexandria!

With the anticipation of the upcoming new year, these companies will be releasing features within their integrated software, Mitinet’s BestMARC, an automated cloud-based MARC management tool, and COMPanion’s Alexandria, a library automation software, for use in the school and public library markets in January 2021.  When using this powerful integration, Alexandria users will have the power to access a state-of-the-art ILS providing them clean, up-to-date metadata, allowing more precise searches, extending the life of library materials and all without limits.

“Finding the right book in the library shouldn’t be a tedious struggle for students and patrons.  With this complete software integration, we will be able to provide libraries the most precise tools they need to succeed.  Mitinet and COMPanion strives to provide libraries the most value for their collections with the perfect ILS and accurate metadata.” – Bart Fitzgerald, Mitinet CEO
