The Vega Insider June 2023
Recent Releases for Vega LX
We’ve mentioned it before, but our Vega Library Experience suite of products have had some big updates recently, and we’re too proud not to share again:
  • Vega Discover has new homepage options! It’s easier than ever to make the front page of Vega Discover visually engaging for your patrons. The new home page is available to all Discover libraries. Learn about the Vega Discover Home Page
  • Innovative recently introduced the Vega Discover Kids Catalog, designed to attract younger patrons’ attention through visual icons, colorful buttons, and playful backgrounds, while supporting the ability to automatically limit search results to age-appropriate library materials. Available later this year, learn more about Themed Catalogs online.
Middle Country Public Library Gets a Boost from Vega Program
First Middle Country Public Library implemented  Vega Program, and then they saw their event registration and management experience improve.

We love hearing library success stories, and on August 31, we’ll host folks from Middle Country Public Library for a discussion on their experience with Vega Program!

MCPL staff will discuss the implementation process, how Vega Program features have helped solve specific challenges, and how they've utilized the Vega Program API. Hear the finer points of the implementation process from the library’s point of view and have a chance to ask your questions of the library and Innovative.

Register for the webinar August 31 at 12pm ET | 9am PT
LX Starter Available for International Libraries
Built on Vega LX technology, LX Starter is included for Polaris & Sierra libraries to send modern email notices to patrons. It also integrates with Vega Promote for managing email notices and marketing emails in one place. LX Starter training and implementation plans are now available for single-system (non-consortia) international libraries.
