Warren and Seneca Library Districts select Vega Discover and Polaris

October 27, 2022. Innovative, part of Clarivate, is pleased to announce that the Warren Library Association in Pennsylvania has recently selected Vega Discover as their Discovery layer, and Seneca Library District, of which the Warren Library Association is a part, have chosen to migrate all member libraries to Polaris, and to use Vega Discover for Consortia as their discovery layer.

The Warren Library Association was founded in 1873, and the Warren Public Library has occupied its current location at 205 Market Street since 1916, adding additional space and joining with additional locations in Warren County along the way to form a five-library consortium.

The wider Seneca Library District includes 17 independent libraries in Cameron, Elk, Forest, McKean, and Warren counties, and offer a wide variety of services that range from a Digital Learning Lab at the Sarah Stewart Bovard Memorial Library to Checkers TV from Tidioute Public Library, and Foot Stompin' Fridays at the Hamlin Memorial Library in Smethport, offering music and dinner.

Polaris provides an intuitive web interface that brings the full power and functionality of the ILS to the web browser with the Leap staff client. Leap can be used on a computer or tablet, freeing staff to connect with patrons and complete tasks wherever it is most convenient—even outside the library walls.

Vega Discover is a full-featured discovery tool that not only delivers premier search results, but also features a patron bookshelf with custom reading lists, patron account management, library-curated and automated smart showcases, and smart showcases on related resources and topics.

Vega Discover is the responsive and accessible discovery module of the Vega Library Experience (LX) suite of patron engagement tools. Vega LX is a cloud-based platform that allows library staff to easily communicate and manage a full range of materials, programs, and services.

Vega LX works seamlessly with ILS solutions Sierra and Polaris. To learn more about the Polaris ILS or the Vega LX platform, visit iii.com or contact Innovative today.
