Aspen Discovery Webinars

Aspen is a full-featured Discovery System that integrates with eContent and other third-party providers, giving your patrons comprehensive access to all of your materials in one place. Aspen combines your library catalog with e-content, digital archives, and enrichment from all major third-party providers. It also improves relevancy and ease of use, provides native reading recommendations, displays all formats of titles within one result (record grouping), and much more. Aspen was created to give users an improved experience over other Discovery systems with less impact on library budgets.

Aspen LiDA (Library Discovery app) is the companion to Aspen Discovery. The app expands the robust offerings currently available with Aspen Discovery; including intuitive searching, visually engaging browsing, patron account management, and suggested searches to bring an enhanced library experience to your patrons.
