2020 Softlink Information Centres Accomplishments Narrative

Softlink Information Centresí 2020 focus was on increasing the profile of both Liberty v5 and illumin in the US legal and corporate library sector. The advent of Covid-19 has made that somewhat challenging.

Despite that, awareness of our research management system, illumin, continues to increase as corporate and government libraries look for cost effective and efficient ways to manage their increasing request loads.

Travel restrictions made traditional modes of interaction impossible as we ensured the health of our users, prospective customers, and our staff was not compromised.To ensure we did not loose touch, we made even greater use of technology whenever and wherever possible.

Our face-to-face User Group Meetings, Boot Camp series and training sessions were delivered virtually. We created training and information videos and continued to cover a variety of topics on our blog page. Any avenue we could find to keep in contact we used!

We continued to deliver a program of releases, that meet our goal of delivering a management system that is functionally rich and easy to use for library and knowledge centre staff and their users. New features included:

The AI Enhance feature on our Liberty Link app makes adding valuable metadata to resource records less labour intensive.

The ability to stocktake using mobile devices.

A secure visitor logging feature in anticipation of the re-opening of libraries and knowledge centres as the Covid-19 restrictions begin to ease.

The much anticipated íSmartí Serials option which includes workflow improvements.

All in all, despite a challenging year for everyone, it was a full and successful year. We welcomed several new customers into the fold including the Central Lands Council in the Northern Territory and Lamar College in Texas. We look forward to a great 2021.
