Abstract: The Flemish Theatre Institute in Brussels is the latest Belgian organization to ’go live’ with AquaBrowser Library.


The Vlaams Theater Instituut (Flemish Theatre Institute) in Brussels is the latest Belgian organization to 'go live' with AquaBrowser Library -- the market-leading library search solution.

The library of the Vlaams Theater Instituut (VTi) is unique, particularly for its outstanding assortment of holdings, and conglomeration with other resources. This collection is distinguished because it contains specialized resources that are geared specifically towards the experts in the performing arts realm (theatre, dance, opera, live art, etc). With nearly 100,000 titles in its physical collection, VTi also offers a portal to another 100,000 titles from selected websites, Amazon.co.uk, weblogs and magazines, and its sister organization - the Theater instituut Nederland (Dutch Theatre Institute). With the combination of these information sources, VTi is a fantastic candidate for AquaBrowser Library in that the system not only connects to multiple sources, but also makes the most use of them.

From the design aspect, AquaBrowser Library as implemented for VTi has been injected with VTi's own look and feel to integrate directly into their existing publications.

AquaBrowser Library in the VTi Library will bring the collection to life with instantaneous search results, word associations and an array of choices and paths using the 'Search, Discover, Refine' design features that take the user on an information journey like never imagined before. Besides being such a useful application to any library, AquaBrowser Library also makes searching fun. Take a tour of this new implementation: Http://zoeken.vti.be
