Vermont Department of Libraries Modernizes with Auto‐Graphics’
Library Management Solutions

An integrated system to provide access to library materials across the state, extending
access to quality information to Vermont citizens

Montpelier, VT. — April 5, 2017 – In the summer of 2017, Vermonters will have ready access to
library materials from 549 libraries across the State as the Vermont Department of Libraries
upgrades Vermont’s interlibrary loan system. Auto‐Graphics, Inc., a leading provider of library
software, was selected to provide a new integrated library system and a resource sharing system,
giving library patrons the ability to search across all participating libraries in the state. Tom
McMurdo, Collections & Digital Initiatives Librarian, says, “The Department of Libraries looks
forward to modernizing our resource sharing system and getting more information into the
hands of Vermont citizens.”

Over 50,000 items are circulated through the Department of Libraries’ current interlibrary loan
system each year. In addition to saving libraries time and money, the new system’s ease of use
will expand this popular service. According to McMurdo, “Auto‐Graphics’ software solution
provides a seamless, efficient experience for anyone requesting an interlibrary loan or using the
Department of Libraries catalog. This will allow us to maximize our resources to better serve the
people of Vermont.”
