February 28, 2012 -- Emeryville, CA. Continuous product improvement has been the hallmark of SkyRiver product development since its initial launch and has resulted in timely support of new browsers, operating systems, and new features that maximize SkyRiver's usability. As another step in this process, SkyRiver today announced the deployment of Release 3.2 of its cataloging client software. The release has several new features which highlight some of SkyRiver's exceptional database functionality. Other enhancements have made the SkyRiver bibliographic database even easier to navigate so that catalogers quickly find matching records.

One of the key new features is single click headings verification, which offers superior record validation against the LC authority record database. In addition, the new release includes streamlined browse searching with highlighting of previously viewed entries on browse lists and expanded use of progress bars during searches.

"My copy catalogers are thrilled with the hit rate and the fact that the SkyRiver database is cleaner than that of our legacy utility has been a great help in getting to the exact bibliographic records they need" says Regina Gong, Manager of Technical Services and Systems at Lansing Community College which recently moved to SkyRiver. She adds, "We're saving processing time, which translates to dollars Ė and this is in addition to the ongoing savings in cataloging subscription fees that we've been able to realize."
