EMERYVILLE, Calif. December 15, 2020 – Innovative, a ProQuest company and leading global provider of library software announced today that Vega Discover is now in general release.
With recent events affecting library availability, easy online access to the library catalog and related activities have become more crucial than ever before. Now, library patrons can use any device to search your library’s catalog with Vega, which provides interconnected search results unlike anything else available today. Vega’s smart layout shows patrons what they’re looking for right at the top of their screen and provides visual showcases of library resources related to patron interests. Patrons can even check out and open eBooks on any device directly from Vega.
“We couldn’t be prouder of Vega Discover. We’ve performed careful testing and worked tightly with our development partners to create a system that works for patrons and for libraries, and we’re confident that new Vega users will agree Vega is simply the best discovery system available today,” says Jordan Fields, Product Senior Team Lead.
In addition to innovation in content, Vega Discover offers libraries a quick road to implementation, with early adopters going from square one to sharing with patrons in as little as 6-8 weeks.
“We are listening to and addressing the challenges libraries face to deliver technology that is unparalleled in today’s market and worked with patrons to understand their needs and challenges working with current online tools,” said Yariv Kursh, General Manager of Innovative. “Vega Discover is Innovative’s first release of a new era. The Vega platform is designed from the ground up to be modern, streamlined, and secure while intelligently using connections between resources to give patrons the best experience possible.”
