Aspen Weekly: Self Registration
One of our main goals is to help improve access to your library and its resources, and what better way to start people on their library journeys than to offer the convenience of online self registration? In this week’s Aspen Weekly, we show you how easy it is to set up self registration within Aspen! Whether it’s integrated with your ILS or sending users to your own custom registration site, we hope you’ll find that setting up self registration is as easy and painless as the rest of the Aspen Discovery experience.

Aspen Weekly: Web Resources
We all know that libraries offer so many resources to their communities, including an ever-increasing amount of online resources. The question is, how do we help our patrons find these resources? Aspen Discovery has a great solution! As easy as filling out a simple form, the Web Resources section will help you generate a helpful directory to which you can easily direct patrons. Don’t feel limited to just online databases and subscription websites – consider adding links to local or state resources, community organizations, and more!
