Lycoming County Library System touts CyberSetting’s centralized administration across multiple libraries in selection of new filter to comply with CIPA at all locations

Sewickley, PA - 09/15/04
- InfoWorks Technology, a leading innovator of online security/privacy protection software, today announced that the James V. Brown Library has switched from N2H2 to CyberSetting to extend their Internet filtering out to approximately 200 PCs across eleven locations within the Lycoming County Library System. Though the library already had N2H2’s server-based Internet filter solution in place to support its local PCs, that system could not meet the county library system’s needs for supporting all locations. With CIPA creating the need for filtering at all county libraries, their preference was to support this through one system, with a centralized administration capability.

Now they have accomplished this with one CyberSetting system installed at the main library location. “Libraries are interested in a solution that not only allows them to comply with CIPA requirements, but at the same time minimizes impact on staff and patrons. Therefore, a top priority is the ability to easily disable the filter where and when it’s necessary. Ease of system administration is also a critical attribute, as is reinforced with the system change for Lycoming County Library System,” stated Jesse Song of InfoWorks Technology. “To find a solution that effectively and affordably meets the needs of their environment is a challenge for libraries. CyberSetting is such a solution, which sets it apart from other filters available to the library market.”

Song explains, “Because CyberSetting was designed for the library environment, we built in only the functionality needed in libraries, leaving out other unnecessary features used in other environments. This creates a more affordable solution that helps libraries work within their budget constraints. It also simplifies the system installation and support, which appeals to the libraries with limited technical resources.”
