    Atlas Systems, the leading provider of time-saving solutions for libraries, has announced that OCLC will extend its suite of resource sharing services with Odyssey™ 3.0, the new version of Atlas’ free stand-alone electronic delivery software. Odyssey complements the OCLC ILLiad™ Resource Sharing Management Software that was developed by Atlas Systems and is now distributed by OCLC.

    The stand-alone version of Odyssey allows sites to send and receive electronic documents to and from other Odyssey sites, OCLC ILLiad sites, and any other supplier’s software that supports the Odyssey protocol. “Odyssey 3.0 features the ability to send and receive PDF files and allows for users of the stand-alone module to be ‘trusted senders’ with ILLiad partners, resulting in even faster delivery times,” says Genie Powell, Chief Customer Officer at Atlas Systems. “In addition, we’ve made it easier to set up and administer Odyssey, making the free software even more attractive.”

    “The Odyssey stand-alone represents an outstanding opportunity for OCLC members to expand their resource sharing using a free application,” says Katie Birch, Director, OCLC Delivery Services. “The partnership between OCLC and Atlas Systems continues to provide industry-leading software opportunities to the resource sharing community.”
