ByWater Solutions Announces Support of Aspen Discovery for MAIN Libraries
ByWater Solutions, America’s forefront provider of open-source library technology support, announced today that they are providing support and hosting services for the MAIN Libraries Aspen Discovery system. MAIN Libraries Discovery is available at https://discover.mainlib.org/.
Phillip Berg, Executive Director recently commented on their Aspen Discovery Implementation:
The new catalog was designed to blend the online shopping experience we've become accustomed to with discovering all the different services that a library offers, rather than only focusing on traditional physical library materials and perhaps eBooks. Each library will also have far more customization options when it comes to highlighting the unique services they provide to their local communities.
Nate Curulla, CRO at ByWater Solutions, recently commented on the partnership and implementation of Aspen Discovery for MAIN Libraries.
We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with MAIN and its member libraries to bring Aspen Discovery to their patrons and staff! The functionality within Aspen is fantastic for complex multi-site consortiums and MAIN’s involvement in the Aspen Community will only make that functionality stronger.
