Quipu Group LLC, a library technology company, has partnered with The Library Corporation (TLC), a leading supplier of integrated library systems and services, to develop new patron registration and update APIs. TLC’s newly created Library•Solution APIs support seamless integration with Quipu Group’s eCARD online registration services, providing verified online card registration for Library•Solution customers. Justin Duewel-Zahniser, TLC’s Chief Technology Officer shared, “It was a pleasure working with Quipu Group on behalf of our mutual customer, Warren County Library. We partnered closely on the initial integration development and testing, and are excited for the benefit this will bring to Warren County, and to our other mutual customers going forward.”
With eCARD, library patrons have easy access to library card self-registration, using Quipu’s intuitive online registration from the library’s website with the option to use on their in-library computers. Quipu’s eCARD system verifies and standardizes address information entered by the patron in real time for addresses in the U.S. and Canada. Once verified, a patron record is created in the Library•Solution integrated library system and available for immediate use.
“We have enjoyed our development partnership with The Library Corporation (TLC) this past year and over the past decade. We found Justin Duewel-Zahniser and his team to be extremely collaborative and innovative. We love partnering with TLC, a company that shares Quipu’s values for providing excellence in customer services and software,” shared Robert Anderson, Quipu Partner.
In the past, the Quipu Group and TLC partnered to develop full-featured APIs that allow for seamless integration between Quipu’s eCARD product and TLC’s CARL•Solution. CARL•Solution integrations include Contra Costa County Library (CA), Los Angeles Public Library (CA), Metropolitan Library System (OK), Monroe County Library System (NY), Solano County Library (CA), and Wellington City Libraries in New Zealand.
