ByWater Solutions, America's forefront provider of Open Source library technology support, announced today that they have partnered with Springshare, a leading SaaS vendor for libraries and educational institutions, to provide integration with LibCal and Aspen Discovery.
With this integration, common customers of ByWater's Aspen Discovery and Springshare's LibCal will see LibCal event information and registration data seamlessly integrated into Aspen content pages.
Nate Curulla, Co-Owner and CRO, at ByWater Solutions recently commented on the partnership.
We are thrilled to partner with Springshare to help patrons find events from LibCal within Aspen for easier discoverability. This development initiative directly complements Aspen Discovery's goal to maximize patron usage of all library resources.
Aspen Discovery's direct connection to LibCal brings patrons one step closer to the information they are seeking. LibCal's informative, media-rich event calendar pages display intuitively to the user in Aspen Discovery thus increasing the visibility and attendance for library events.
Springshare tools are all about helping librarians meet the needs of their patrons. said Slaven Zivkovic, Springshare's Founder & CEO. This exciting linkup between Aspen Discovery and LibCal is another way we are making it easier for libraries to engage with users and promote the resources and services they offer to the community.
Springshare software helps libraries engage with their communities and deepen relationships with users. Our SaaS suite is used by over 7,500 libraries in 91 countries around the world.
