Innovative Rolls Out Vega Discover for General Availability

Innovative’s Vega Discover is now in general release for libraries using the Polaris ILS. This public library discovery solution has been under rapid development for the past year, with four libraries testing it out. Now, 40-plus libraries are using Vega Discover. With this release, customers get an expanded list of Syndetics Unbound elements that are woven into the user experience, which means that patrons can browse virtual stacks and search for titles that meet their needs and match their interests. 

A module in the Vega Library Experience suite, Vega Discover “transforms traditional MARC records into BIBFRAME, allowing those records to be connected through complex, linked data relationships. This unique approach empowers Discover to offer interconnected search results that are more accurate and relevant through an intuitive design that makes it easy for people to uncover content with the simplicity they expect from modern technology,” according to the press release. In addition, it allows patrons to save their searches and the individual titles they find, create customized lists, place holds and check out items, and more.

For more information, read the press release.
