CAMBRIDGESHIRE County Council is introducing a £530,000 on-line information system which will improve library services.

From next Tuesday, the new Unicorn System will be used to manage customer and stock records. The system will make it quicker for library users to carry out searches and will enable customers to request books that are not in stock in Cambridgeshire and make on-line recommendations for titles to be made available.

Existing tickets and PIN numbers can still be used on-line with the new system to request and renew books, CDs, DVDs and videos.

Councillor Fred Yeulett said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for the library service to further modernise its provision and first class service to our residents."

To allow the system to be installed, all libraries and library access points will be closed on Sunday and Monday.
