Vega Promote Web releases new interface, updated apps for discovery & events


There are three new drag-and-drop apps with integrations for discovery and library events within the Vega Promote Web website-building solution. The app releases include:

  • Vega Discover Showcases – Four new designs for collection showcases, larger cover art, and improved performance.
  • Vega Discover search – There are now two options; a search box that searches only the catalog, or an integrated search box where users can search the catalog or the library website.
  • Vega Program events – You can now display the next three chronological events at the library, or show a search panel and form where users can search all events.
This is just a short sampling; read more about the new Vega Promote Web apps here.

Clarivate "Voice of Customer" survey


The Clarivate Voice of Customer survey is a twice-annual survey of a portion of Clarivate customers, including Innovative customer libraries.

Some Innovative customers will receive an email from Bar Veinstein, Clarivate's Academia & Government Segment President, inviting them to complete the survey, which runs through June 7.

Not every Innovative library will receive the survey, but those who do should know that the survey applies to their relationship with Innovative.

Thanks in advance for your participation!

Webinar wrap-up: Use the Vega LX suite to connect with your community

Innovative recently hosted a webinar detailing how libraries can use Vega Library Experience (LX) modules to deliver a consistent, uniformly branded experience across the digital interactions that patrons have with the library.

Product Managers from Vega Discover, Vega Program, Vega Promote and Vega Promote Web presented a case study to demonstrate the value for libraries in providing a reliable and recognizable library experience for patrons – and how doing so can bolster engagement with library materials, events, and services.

82% of survey respondents who attended the webinar said they’d be able to put the tips in the webinar to good use within the next year. Visit our site to learn more and to access the webinar recording.

“The drag-and-drop WYSIWYG [“what you see is what you get”] nature of the Promote Web backend made the process of recreating large chunks of our site pretty quick and painless, and we’ve been able to get a new and improved site up and running in a very short period of time.”
