Shared Data Model
Metadata is maintained within KnowledgeWorks, our highly respected knowledgebase. We’ll maintain it for you, saving you time and improving the accuracy of the information that powers your library.
Designed to not only allow you to manage your entire library’s collection in one place, but also to interact with external systems such as finance, suppliers, and discovery services. By more tightly connecting all library activity, efficiencies are created, information is shared, and costs are reduced.
Utilizing brand-new workflows designed in partnership with libraries to meet the reality of today’s library operations. Streamlined workflows mean greater productivity, allowing resources to be reallocated to high- priority activities.
Lower Total Cost of Ownership
A true Software as a Service (SaaS) offering that provides cost savings at multiple levels. With no hardware or software to maintain, it eliminates the need for costly IT resources and expertise.
