Framingham, MA and San Francisco, CA. April 18, 2012. Muse Global, Inc. and Infor Library and Information Solutions are pleased to announce their collaboration to offer libraries a custom mobile search platform. Through this collaboration, Infor Library and Information Solutions will offer MuseGlobal's mobile search interface within the NOW mobile solution, providing mobile access to a library's catalog and subscription databases.
Says Ann Melaerts, managing director Infor Library and Information Solutions: "With MuseGlobal's in-depth knowledge and expertise in search, and federated search in particular, we are now able to provide mobile access to a library of diverse resources including the catalog and subscription databases. We are excited about working with Muse in taking our mobile application to the next level."
The Muse mobile search platform is entirely cloud-based and utilizes standard protocols such as SIP2 and Z39.50. Libraries are not required to export data, and the platform is readily implemented with minimal resources. Through Muse, library users can search a library's catalog or subscription databases and enjoy access to their accounts to place holds, renew items on loan, and more.
