Keystone Systems and the National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled (NLS) are excited to announce that following highly successful test implementations at Colorado Talking Book Library and the Georgia Library for Accessible Statewide Services they plan to start rolling out KLAS+Gutenberg implementations to two NLS network libraries per month, beginning in February.
The next 10 KLAS+Gutenberg libraries and their install months are as follows:
|Oregon Talking Book and Braille Library||Feburary|
|Nevada Talking Book Services||Feburary|
|Minnesota Braille and Talking Book Library||March|
|San Francisco Public Library - Talking Books and Braille Center||March|
|Indiana State Library - Talking Book and Braille Library||April|
|Washington Talking Book & Braille Library||April|
|Utah Library for the Blind||May|
|California State Library - Braille and Talking Book Library||May|
|New York State Talking Book and Braille Library||June|
|New York Public Library - Andrew Heiskell Braille and Talking Book Library||June|
KLAS+Gutenberg Installation Criteria & Prioritization
Keystone collaborated with NLS to select this list and determine the order of the rollout based on the following criteria:
- Libraries need to have completed an upgrade to KLAS version 7.7, or at least be well along in the upgrade process.
- Libraries must have adequate onsite IT support.
- Libraries must have expressed interest and enthusiasm for moving forward with KLAS+Gutenberg, with preference given to those libraries that submitted their requests the earliest.
