Vancouver, BC – September 29, 2016. Eloquent Systems Inc. is pleased to announce that VanDusen Botanical Garden has selected the Eloquent Library™ software.

The mobile-friendly Eloquent Library is seamlessly integrated into the VanDusen website, with their header and footer always available, even though it resides in the Eloquent Cloud where it is available anywhere, anywhere, and trouble-free. “The new mobile-friendly search page has been well blended with our Garden’s branding,” said Marina Princz, Librarian. “It is attractive and easy to navigate.”
There was no disruption to the VanDusen patrons or their library staff during the upgrade to this leading-edge technology. “The technical people at Eloquent have been a pleasure to work with,” said Ms. Princz. “They are extremely knowledgeable, timely and helpful in terms of trouble-shooting and doing all the custom tailoring.”
