TLC Integrates Syndetics Unbound Into its Library Management Software
As of the latest release of Library•Solution, the Library Corp. (TLC) is incorporating ProQuest’s Syndetics Unbound catalog enrichment resource into the software “with a deliberate and unique integration, leveraging the enriched elements for both patron discovery and staff usability.” LS2 PAC, the integrated discovery layer in Library•Solution, “will begin incorporating Syndetics Unbound content with an additional multi-tiered subscription service. … TLC has ensured that … the content supports the existing design and functionality of the catalog—as opposed to being displayed in one central location.” Syndetics Unbound subscribers can view additional Unbound content inside the LS2 Cataloging feature before a record is saved locally.
“The exposed content within LS2 Cataloging allows staff to review a title’s content before the record is saved to the database and displayed to their borrowers,” says Sarah Simmons, a TLC product manager. “We then went further, providing staff with functionality that allows them to report missing or incorrect content directly to Syndetics Unbound on their own, cutting out the reporting middle-man altogether.”
