Emeryville, CA. Innovative announced today that North Liberty Community Library (NLCL) in Iowa has selected the Polaris ILS and Polaris Leap - a browser-based tool that offers key public services workflows in the stacks or outside the library. NLCL has over 50,000 items in its collection and is migrating from an Insignia Library System provided by Insignia Software.
"The Polaris PAC will provide integrated discovery of our OverDrive e-books and downloadable audiobooks and give patrons more control over their library accounts," says Library Director Jennie Garner. "We are looking forward to the powerful features of SimplyReports, which will help us as we strive to continually reinvent and improve services. In addition, our staff will be using Polaris Leap at locations throughout the community such as schools, grocery stores, and coffee houses. This will make providing these services seamless and more efficient."
"At Innovative, we strive to create an outstanding experience for patrons every time they interact with their library," says SVP of Global Sales Bill Schickling. "The combination of integrated discovery of subscription e-books with NLCL's local collections, and more convenient interactions with library staff through Polaris Leap, will take the library's services to the next level. We also expect that increased reporting power will open new avenues that will help them improve on what they deliver to patrons well into the future."
