The Bibliovation LSP provides an extensible, web based platform from which libraries can manage both traditional bibliographic materials along with digital content, all in a single platform. Supporting MARC21, RDA and geotagging, Bibliovation offers a Rest API-based Discovery Layer integrated with the EDS API and Index Data’s Master Key services, providing the end user the ability to search both catalog and databases at the same time. Bibliovation includes an EDI-compliant acquisitions component; a completely MARC-based cataloging editor for bibliographic, holdings and authority records; and full patron empowerment for purchase requests, ILL requests and reference requests from the Discovery Layer. Bibliovation is completely web-based, FISMA- certified and is hosted in a FedRAMP-compliant hosting facility. The latest release of Bibliovation, which came out in late September, includes a variety of new features such as OCR upon ingest, batch edit of bibliographic records, ‘object-only’ displays in the Discovery Layer, a new reporting module, and notification enhancements.
LibLime, a division of PTFS, is the global leader in providing support for open development Library Service Platforms (LSP). Rather than sell software licenses for static, hard-to-customize software products, LibLime educates libraries about the benefits of open development, enabling them to make choices about how best to provide their communities and staff with better technology services. LibLime then facilitates deployment of the LSP in libraries by providing outstanding consulting, development, implementation, and support/hosting services. PTFS is also the developer of the world’s leading content management software, Knowvation, and specializes in meeting library personnel staffing requirements, digitization and metadata keying services.
