Since October 2, 2006 the Sussex Technical High School in Georgetown, Delaware has been using SchoolRooms™ as the first pilot of SchoolRooms™ in the state. The pilot is a project spearheaded by the Delaware Division of Libraries with support from the Governor's Task Force on School Libraries. Plans are to pilot SchoolRooms™ in one district and look at rolling out the product to other school and public libraries throughout the state over the next year.

Quote & Contact Information
"The strength of SchoolRooms™ is its organization of all types of information by school subject standards into a seamless interface. Recently Dr. Ross Todd of Rutgers University conducted a study of Delaware's school libraries and advised us to create a seamless information landscape. The SchoolRooms™ pilot is a perfect solution to this recommendation, creating an environment where students can apply what they learn about school library resources to their information seeking at home or in the public library." – Annie Norman, director and state librarian of Delaware Division of Libraries / State Library.
