WebFeat Unveils New Tools for Libraries

WebFeat (, provider of federated search technologies, has unveiled version 2.0 of its SMART Usage Tracker. It offers enterprise/multilibrary/branch reports, an XLS export feature, and new graphical reports, all managed through a new report generation console. SMART 2.0 enables libraries to instantly generate a wealth of reports to track usage for any database integrated into their WebFeat federated search solutions—including subscription databases, catalogs, free databases, proprietary databases, Z39.50, and more.

WebFeat also announced that it has partnered with Quova, Inc. ( to provide geolocation authentication for WebFeat’s federated search solutions. Libraries integrating the Quova technology with their WebFeat systems can now provide instant access to subscription content without prompting patrons for authentication or library card barcodes.

HSLC/Access PA and the POWER Library will be the country’s first WebFeat system to securely authenticate remote patrons using the Quova system. Test implementation of this new authentication system will begin in the next few months with rollout as the test period is completed. The Access PA and POWER Library programs facilitate resource sharing among more than 3,000 school, public, academic, and special libraries throughout Pennsylvania.
