South Thames College is a multi-site further education college in south-west London. Formerly OLIB users, they recently merged with Merton College, who were using Heritage.
After a lengthy tender process and demonstrations they decided to adopt Heritage for their harmonised catalogoue. There are now three sites with learning resource centres - Wandsworth, Tooting and Merton. There are approximately 27,000 students and 1,550 staff. A move to Heritage has enabled the college to enhance and improve their services while at the same time reducing their annual support costs significantly.

Now a regular event, our Open Days are becoming increasingly popular with users as an alternative to seeing us at the more traditional exhibitions
The IS Oxford Open Day held in March proved to be the most popular yet, with over fifty users joining us on the day for the presentation of Heritage 4.2.9 followed by a guided tour of the Ashmolean museum in Oxford.
We were delighted with the warm reception that the new developments received. We'll be posting some photographs from the day on the website soon.
The next Open Day, on 17th June, is already heavily subscribed, so if you are a Heritage user and you'd like to join us please get in touch soon to book your place. If you're not a Heritage user, but you are interested in coming to one of our Open Days then please contact Emma Duffield for further details.
