Aspen Weekly: Aspen LiDA Administration
A lot has changed with Aspen LiDA (lee-da) since we launched the Aspen Library Discovery App in the Fall of 2021. In the 22.09 release, we made management and set up of Aspen LiDA even easier for libraries by creating Aspen LiDA’s own administration area. In this week’s Aspen Weekly, we walk you through the Aspen LiDA set up.
Aspen Weekly: Updating Your Custom Theme
Aspen Discovery is a great tool for library members new and old alike. For many who are new to the library, it may also give them their first impression of your library. Aspen Discovery is designed to be functional out of the box but may not always meet your design standards to give the desired impression. So, how can you update Aspen to make it meet those standards and give the right impression? In this Aspen Weekly, we’ll show you some examples of how you can update the look of your Aspen Discovery layer!
Aspen Weekly: Academic Libraries
Fall is in the air for some libraries across the country. Just as many public libraries are taking a (tiny) breather from surviving another year of Summer Reading, academic libraries are gearing up to welcome new users as school begins. Our Aspen community has a growing number of academic institutions using Aspen Discovery. In this week’s Aspen Weekly, we wanted to highlight some of our academic institutions and the features they are using.
Aspen Weekly: Facets
At the core of Aspen Discovery is easy navigation and relevant searching. Aspen offers libraries approximately 40 facets they can choose from to limit catalog results. There are also other areas of Aspen where libraries can create custom facets or facets are generated automatically to help better direct users to relevant materials. In this Aspen Weekly, we will explore setting up and customizing facets in Aspen.
Aspen Weekly: Web Builder Showcase
Libraries are using Aspen’s Web Builder feature for a number of different purposes and one of our favorite things is seeing what creative ideas libraries come up with. For this Aspen Weekly, we’re going to highlight various uses and features of Web Builder through pages and sites our partners have built!
