CIVIC Announces New GIS Service for Libraries

CIVIC Technologies, Inc. (CIVIC), a provider of geographic information systems (GIS) for public libraries, announced its new LibraryDecision SnapShot service, which is designed and priced so that public libraries of all sizes can better understand the communities they serve. SnapShot is designed to help librarians plan more intelligently for the future. Demographic trends, strategic issues, and constituent concerns are identified and integrated into a comprehensive report. Polaris Library Systems (, a strategic marketing partner of CIVIC since 2004, will introduce SnapShot to its public library customers nationally. 

SnapShot's external analysis addresses the social, economic, and urban development trends of a library's jurisdiction while an internal analysis focuses on issues such as facility limitations that affect service, funding cut backs, and growth or decline in patrons and checkouts. SnapShot sells for $895 and is available to public libraries nationally by contacting CIVIC Technologies. To learn more, visit SnapShot was prepared for Henderson District Public Libraries (Nev.), a Polaris customer. The Henderson SnapShot report is available at the same Web site address.

CIVIC's products include three other LibraryDecision offerings and basic and pro versions of BusinessDecision, which is designed for library patron use.
