Connect

Vega Connect establishes a foundation that brings together the library’s enterprise system with modern patron engagement. It helps staff manage end-to-end experiences, providing a state-of-the-art context engine for linked data searches and exploration, a messaging engine, and an extended view of all patron activities.

Discover

Finding and exploring, checking out and reading are all simple, intuitive experiences with Vega Discover. By combining an accessible display with modern data standards, it provides a more user-friendly, intelligent presentation of library data, rolling all formats into a single title display and providing related resources.

Interact

Vega Interact ensures two-way conversation is at the heart of every patron relationship. It sends appealing and personalized notifications through preferred communications channels, answers questions via chatbot or live chat, and even integrates with digital assistants such as Alexa.

Promote

Vega Promote keeps patrons and community members well informed through targeted and relevant communications. Designed specifically for library marketing needs, you can easily run campaigns, build landing pages, design websites, and fundraise. Learn more

Program

Easily manage library events through registration forms, landing web pages, RSVP programs, and targeted contact lists. And make your programs more discoverable throughout the library experience by integrating them on websites, in emails, through showcases, and relating them to materials in the collection. Learn more

Analyze

Measure the library’s impact and outcomes, not just actions, through unified reporting across Vega LX and the ILS. With Analyze, you can quantify the value of the library through data and guided analysis, demonstrating ROI and expanding your services in a way that meets community needs.
