The National Library Board of Singapore (NLB) is set to implement automation solutions that it says will improve the library experience for staff and patrons, “whether in the library or online”.
The NLB has signed up to consume software from Innovative, which is owned by UK-based Clarivate.
Specifically, it will implement the Polaris integrated library system (ILS) and Vega Discover applications from the vendor.
Little detail was offered as to how the two solutions would improve staff or customer experiences.
The investments come under the Libraries and Archives Blueprint 2025 - LAB25 - program of works undertaken by NLB.
LAB25 is an NLB initiative to collaborate with partners and the community to reimagine libraries and archives in Singapore.
