Brisbane, Australia - Library management systems today should no longer exist in isolation. Instead, they need to integrate with a choice of other components, both within the library's technical infrastructure and beyond.
Systems integration is a recurring topic in libraries. With increasing digitalisation and the ability to easily connect communities and give them the ability to access library material anytime and anywhere, integrating library management systems with third-party e-resources and databases is a necessity.
The future of libraries, therefore, lies in being open. In other words, offering access not only to their collections but also to external e-resources and databases.
Bearing this in mind, LIBERO's new Open Access content catalogue, LIBERO Omnio, enables precisely this kind of integration. LIBERO Omnio takes your library customers to new places without them ever leaving LIBERO. Through integration with external e-content providers, library customers can search for e-resources, view availability, reserve and borrow in LIBERO Omnio.
LIBERO Omnio integrates with external e-resource or database platforms. Our most popular integrations, however, are Overdrive, Wheelers and BorrowBox.
LIBERO customers do not need to make any additional investment to upgrade to LIBERO Omnio and benefit from a new Member Services Area and unprecedented Smart Search. These upgrades are part of LIBERO's incremental upgrade strategy and available to LIBERO Cloud customers as they are released.
Developed by librarians and industry experts, LIBERO is the all-in-one library management solution for public, academic, corporate, and special libraries.
Our vision is to create an all-in-one library management solution where libraries of all types and sizes contribute to developing a universal system.
Our mission is to provide a reliable, fast, flexible, innovative, and secure solution to all libraries to enable them to harness state-of-the-art technologies and integrations that provide the best value at the lowest long-term cost of ownership.
