International Libraries join the Bibliovation 7.2 family

Rockville, MD -- August 24, 2023. LibLime is pleased to welcome four new public library customers to the Bibliovation 7.2 platform. These new customers serve users in different European communities. One library maintains print and digital collections in the Netherlands; one library provides outreach services to a Northern Italy district; one library supports a user population in Belgium; and the fourth library serves a populace in southern Spain. All four libraries were migrated to the Bibliovation 7.2 platform in the early summer and have been benefiting from the flexible circulation policies in the system to provide different services to their different communities.

Each library received stellar LibLime implementation services covering data analysis, data migration, system configuration, staff manager training, and staff workflow training all under the direction of a PMP-certified Project Manager. The libraries selected Bibliovation 7.2 because of its diverse circulation policy support, its easy-to-use staff interface, its rich MARC-based UNICODE-compliant cataloging editor. Since LibLime has been providing hosting solutions to its library customers for over fifteen years, these libraries are now benefiting from a browser-based library management solution housed in a FedRAMP-certified hosting facility.

The library staffs are also enjoying reading and commenting on the bi-weekly LibLime blog posts found at https://liblime.com/category/liblime/blog/
