Innovative demo of Encore, a next-gen web catalog and more

Submitted by Mike Lynch

On Wednesday, April 15th Barbara Herzog from Innovtive will be here to give a demo of their Encore product.  The demo will take place in LIB 145 at 10:00 a.m.  We saw a demo of this product some time ago but it has evolved a good bit since then.

This is just one of several products we are looking at which will enhance discovery of the resources we have to offer.
