It is now possible to seamlessly integrate enriched content into Heritage enquiry results. (more)
Libraries using the Heritage or Heritage Cirqa Library Management Systems from IS Oxford can now choose Syndetic PLUS, an enhanced OPAC enrichment service from Bowker, an affiliated business of ProQuest. Through Syndetic Solutions advanced widget technology, IS Oxford’s customers will be able to seamlessly integrate enriched content into their OPACs, making them more useful than ever for both library staff and users.
“Syndetics PLUS allows Heritage libraries to customise their Syndetics content to match the look and feel of their OPAC, creating seamless integration that was previously not possible,” said Pam Roud, Sales Director for Bowker UK and International. “All of the valuable content the library subscribes to will be easy to find and visible in their full record display.”
University Campus Suffolk, who have their Heritage LMS hosted by IS Oxford, has taken advantage of this development. “IS Oxford did all the work needed, so very little work was done by us. We were kept informed by Syndetics and IS Oxford throughout the whole process.” said Abby Barker, the eResources Librarian.
Emma Duffield, Sales Manager for IS Oxford, added ‘We are delighted to be able to integrate Syndetics with our products, as enriched content will be of great value to many of our customers.’
Syndetics Plus™ combines more than 40 million valuable content enrichment elements with advanced widget technology to seamlessly integrate bibliographic data within library OPACs. The service’s implementation is quick and, plus options allow each library to customize. Patron-friendly access eliminates pop-ups and endless clicking back and form. Further new content elements are simple to integrate into the established library template.
