Library IQ Demos

The Library IQ Platform provides tools to see and understand your library’s data across key areas of operation.  We have scheduled a demo with staff from Library IQ to present to those interested in learning more and potentially taking advantage of consortial pricing.  The initial demo will be on August 31 at 10 a.m. CT/11 a.m. ET with topic specific demos occurring in the first part of September.  Please register for this demo here.  Also check out the Library IQ website to learn more.

Reference Solutions Search Enhancements

Reference Solutions is adding some new search features to the platform.  They just released the ability to search by legal name in the US Business database.  You see what this looks like here.  In October, they also plan to release the ability to search for businesses by three new category types; “female owned,” “veteran owned,” and “minority owned.”

Evergreen Indiana Upgrade Testing

Evergreen Indiana will be upgrading to version 3.9 this autumn.  We are hoping to have multiple testing environments set up at different times to make sure everything is in working order before launching the new version in early November.  If you are interested, please fill out this form.

You do not need to be a technological wizard to help with this.  We specifically need help from individuals in their libraries regularly.  We will be testing all aspects of the software which means anyone can participate.
