Academic Libraries

As the intellectual hub of your university, your library needs to provide access to the rich resources available at your institution to students, faculty, and staff. With so much content in numerous formats and with varying user needs, your library system needs to intuitively manage your materials and workflows for all of your users.

With Innovative, you have a choice in the system that supports your work, and options for building that system into full-fledged solutions including discovery, database integration, digital resource management, and resource sharing. Whether your library is a single building serving a small college or a multi-branch system serving a large state university, Innovative’s solutions are scalable and customizable to fit your needs.

To help you simplify your overall library solution, Innovative has partnered with many of the most popular specialized library software and content vendors such as EBSCO Information Services and Bibliotheca.
