Pacific Rim and Indian Ocean Libraries Live on Bibliovation 7.2
Rockville, MD, December 2, 2021 – Over a four-month timeframe, LibLime has brought six libraries live on the Bibliovation 7.2 Library Services Platform. These six public libraries are all supporting local community members for print and digital library needs in their respective locations. Two libraries are located in Guam; one is on the island of Diego Garcia; and three are in Japan including Atsugi, Sasebo, and Yokosuka. The migration processes began in late summer and continued throughout the fall. The library staffs are now enjoying the benefits of a 100% browser-based library management solution in a FedRAMP-certified hosting facility. The users of the libraries are accessing their collections and related resources using the Bibliovation Discovery Layer.

Bibliovation 7.2 provides local control of cataloging rules that complement the MARC structure; includes expanded call slip functionality; offers expanded statistical reporting features; and supports multiple time zones in a single database for enhanced autonomous circulation policies among libraries within a union catalog.
LibLime is a 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.
