Campbelltown adopts Spydus to enhance library technology

Campbelltown City Council Libraries has adopted cutting-edge smart software to digitally enhance and elevate its library technology. Campbelltown Library will use the integrated library management tool Spydus, provided by global smart software provider Civica. Through Spydus, Campbelltown’s local community will be able to access all library services online, including services such as Campbelltown’s comprehensive local history archive. This self-service option gives borrowers the freedom to browse at their own convenience and provides more time for librarians to help those who prefer face-to-face assistance.

As the population of Campbelltown grows, and expectations of what a library service should offer change, the council has opted for a forward-thinking library management system (LMS) that provides all four local libraries with up-to-date technology and functionality. George Brticevic, Campbelltown City Council Mayor, said the library management system will make browsing a smoother and more customer-friendly experience.

“We’re delighted to partner with Spydus to deliver this new system which meets the needs of our community and reflects feedback received from our library users,” said Brticevic.

Civica is a long-term technology partner to over 90 regional and metropolitan libraries across Australia and New Zealand. Spydus is a cloud-based system developed in Australia that allows more than 2500 libraries around the world to meet the dynamic needs of library members with the latest digital technologies.

“We’re delighted to welcome Campbelltown Library to our ever-growing Spydus family,” said Iain Finlayson, Managing Director, Libraries & Education at Civica.

“As they become part of our active user group, SPUN, they can take advantage of Civica’s proactive collaboration, including incorporating regular feedback from our library community. This enables us to continue to update our offerings and work with our Spydus libraries to continue enhancing the services they can provide to their citizens.”
