Vega Discover had 29 development releases and added 30 new features in 2022. Every two weeks, automatic software updates are sent to Vega Discover libraries, keeping their online catalog fresh and exciting.

With such frequent releases and so many developments, it may have been tricky to track all the details, so we put together a summary of Vega Discover releases from last year.

Innovative Ideas are Getting a New Home!
Working in conjunction with leaders from the Innovative User’s Group, we are currently in the process of migrating Idea Lab—our customer submission and voting platform for product enhancements—to Idea Exchange, which is hosted on the UserVoice platform.

Like its predecessor, Idea Exchange will be open to all employees at Innovative libraries, from front-line staff to directors, to submit, comment on, and vote on ideas for product enhancements, while implementing several improvements to enhance the user experience.

Idea Exchange will be officially unveiled at the IUG Conference, starting May 10.
