Library Training Services Australia Joins Bibliovation with Class Program
North Bethesda, MD, July 10, 2014 – Students in Helen Ladewig’s courses in library, information services, and cultural services at Library Training Services Australia will begin utilizing Bibliovation this summer through Bibliovation with Class program.
LibLime will provide the class of approximately 35 students with a hosted installation of Bibliovation 4.18 free of charge. This will allow the students unlimited access and all privileges associated with the staff end of Bibliovation as well as all OPAC functionality for the duration of the course. Bibliovation 4.18 includes foundational support for authority control, global editing of authorized fields, improved Solr stemming functionality, RDA support, and enhanced search attributes. The Solr engine, released as part of Bibliovation 4.14, provides increased performance for importing and indexing bibliographic records. Solr also provides a much richer facet list for OPAC searching. Students in Ms. Ladewig’s classes will have the opportunity to take advantage of these and other improvements brought to the application through the Solr search engine.
Ms. Ladewig says, “Library Training Services Australia is thrilled to be partnering with LibLime, to provide our students with the ultimate experience in using a best-practice Integrated Library Management System. Partnering with LibLime, as part of their “Bibliovation with class” program, will enable our students to have a consistent learning experience and have access to a cloud-based platform where they can gain experience first-hand in using an interactive ILMS platform. This will enhance their learning experience and ensure the acquisition of key skills that our students can take back to their own libraries.”
