     *   Providing uninterrupted access to electronic collections and databases
     *   Enhancing user experience across systems and database platforms
     *   Providing valuable insight into collection use and development

  *   Birmingham has been attracting startups and technology firms in recent years because of our beautiful climate and relatively low cost of living.
  *   We have all the cultural and entertainment options that you would expect from a large city, but without the smog and sprawl.
  *   In the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Birmingham is also perfect for outdoor enthusiasts.
