ByWater Solutions, America's forefront provider of Open Source library technology support, announced today that they are providing support and hosting services for the Aspen Open Source Discovery system for the North Olympic Library System (NOLS) in Washington.
Erin Shield, Collection Services Manager, recently commented on the implementation.
NOLS is excited that a broader spectrum of library resources are readily available for patrons in the new catalog. The grouped search results allow people to find the title and format they're looking for efficiently. The streamlined account view with the list of checkouts and holds - both physical and digital - creates a complete picture of options. And, staff are really excited to more easily share recommended titles with customers."
NOLS mission is nurturing imagination, connection, and understanding, to improve lives and strengthen community.
