EMERYVILLE, Calif. June 25, 2021 – Innovative, a ProQuest company and leading global provider of library software, announced today that the BCCLS library consortium in New Jersey has joined Innovative’s Vega Engagement Development Partner program.
BCCLS, pronounced as “Buckles,” is a consortium of 77 public libraries in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, and Passaic counties. The BCCLS consortium serves over 800,000 patrons and has an annual circulation of over 12 million items.
“We are excited to assist in the planning and development process for the Vega LX platform,” said Eric Lozauskas, Director of IT for BCCLS. “By providing all the tools needed for online patron interactions combined with ease of reporting and visibility into those interactions through the Vega Engagement suite, libraries will be able to provide a more personalized and inviting patron experience. Having all those tools in one place, leveraging automation and emerging technologies to save staff time, and providing patrons with more engaging experiences is a great step forward in library innovation.”
The Vega Library Experience (LX) suite offers libraries a unified solution for building ongoing relationships with their community and communicating with users across multiple channels, all while keeping patron data, communication history, and analytics in one place for library staff. The Vega LX suite includes six products: Connect, Discover, Interact, Promote, Program, and Analyze.
Vega LX is developed in partnership with global leading libraries to create a complete library experience for staff, patrons, donors, and citizens. Development Partners help shape Vega’s development through advisory discussions, usability testing, and beta testing. The Vega Engagement Development Partner program is focused on Vega Interact, Promote, and Program.
