Electronic & Digital Content Management Brings Time-Saving Solutions to Vega Discover
Select early access partners using Vega Discover can now automatically ingest bibliographic records from electronic content vendors into their collection.

This Electronic & Digital Content Management (EDCM) integration saves libraries time by automatically loading vendor records and the appropriate subscription details into Vega Discover.

EDCM improves current processes and gets materials in the hands of patrons sooner.
Central Arkansas Library System and The Ferguson Library Launch Vega Promote
Have you heard the news? The Ferguson Library and the Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) have successfully implemented Vega Promote!

In 2020, CALS and The Ferguson Library were two of the first six public library systems to join Innovative’s Vega Development Partner program—an advisory and testing group designed to provide direct input on product strategy and direction for Vega LX. Since joining the Vega Development Partner program, both library systems have also deployed Vega Discover to their patrons. Vega Discover is the responsive and accessible discovery module of Vega LX.

With Vega Promote, CALS and The Ferguson Library can communicate what they want, when they want, to whom they want through targeted and relevant communications.
Save the Date: IUG 2023
