With the 22.05 release you can now fully manage your linked accounts right from the LiDA app! For our libraries who love to use Aspen to index local website content there are even more options to help patrons find the content they need!"
This month we're releasing even more updates to the LiDA app as well as some exciting enhancements for Web Builder.
Patrons can now fully manage a linked account from LiDA including placing, freezing/thawing, and canceling holds, and returning econtent titles. We also did many performance enhancements with the goal of getting all Browse Categories to load quickly on the Discover screen.
Website searching and Aspen's Web Builder also saw several new enhancements in this release. For libraries that are indexing multiple websites into Aspen Discovery, you can now facet off of website name and website type. Custom Web Builder pages are now also fully indexed and searchable!
The Aspen team was also hard at work developing features to make migrating from one ILS to another while keeping Aspen Discovery smooth and easy as well as tackling a number of high priority bugs.
We hope you enjoy the 22.05 release and we'll see you next month!
