Press Center

EMERYVILLE, Calif. June 2, 2021 – Innovative, a ProQuest company and leading global provider of library software, announced today that Torrance Public Library in Torrance, California selected Polaris, Vega Discover, and Innovative Mobile as the next solution for its library staff and patrons.

The Torrance Public Library mission is to provide outstanding services, exceptional resources, and accessible spaces to support an independent, literate, and informed community. They serve a city of 146,860 people with 573,000 items and an annual circulation of 658,246.

“We are excited to implement the new Polaris Integrated Library System with Vega,” said Yolande Wilburn, City Librarian for Torrance Public Library. “With Vega’s increased functionality, we look forward to providing our patrons greater access to our collections while improving our staff’s workflow experience and efficiency.”

Torrance Public Library is moving from SirsiDynix Symphony to Innovative Polaris. Libraries cite Polaris’ breadth and depth of functionality and streamlined workflows as reasons to make the switch. Torrance has started their implementation process and will go live this summer.

Polaris is a leading public library solution that works seamlessly with the Vega Library Experience (LX) suite, a cloud-based platform that allows library staff to easily communicate and manage the full range of materials, programs, and services available to their community. Vega Discover, the first module released in the Vega LX suite, is a discovery tool that delivers more accurate and relevant search results through linked data with an intuitive design that makes it easy for users to find library resources with the simplicity they expect from modern technology.

Vega Discover is available for Sierra and Polaris libraries, and now includes custom showcases. To learn more, visit our website or contact Innovative for a demo.
