We implement intuitive, robust technology for participating members that provides library users the means to discover integrated scholarly content like databases, eBooks, print materials, and multimedia. We implement a suite of discovery technology developed by partners like SirsiDynix, EBSCO Information Services, and OCLC, to ensure users can find the resources they need - anywhere, anytime.
e-Library is Symphony's core discovery tool, providing users the basic tools needed to find library resources. It also enables users to manage their library accounts to renew books, place holds, and more.
BookMyne is a mobile app that allows users to find library resources, get book recommendations, and more.
EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) is the premier discovery layer that integrates full-text linking, superior subject indexing, and powerful search functionality - to give library users a Google-like discovery experience for library resources.
Full Text Finder is an Open-URL compliant link resolver that enables users to connect to resources directly on a content provider's website, or provides a menu of full text options for a resource in search interfaces like EDS or Publication Finder.
Publication Finder is a search interface that allows users to search and browse publications available through their library.
WorldCat Discovery Service is a discovery layer powered by OCLC's library database, WorldCat, and a central index. WorldCat represents library collections worldwide, with almost 400 million records, providing users with a unique discovery service geared toward print materials.
Discovery technology can be integrated with other tools that enhance the end-user experience. We have implemented Bowker's Syndectics ICE in e-Library through SirsiDynix and Curriculum Builder in EDS through EBSCO.
Bowker's Syndectics ICE enriches catalog content through cover images, reviews, excerpts, and more.
Curriculum Builder is a plugin that enables faculty to include library resources directly into their courses through their campus learning management system (Blackboad, Moodle, Canvas).
