Perspective and commentary by Marshall Breeding
Itís been about fifteen months since Innovative Interface made its initial announcement for Encore, its next generation library interface, or "discovery services platform" to use their terminology. The company has found a warm reception to this new product with over 50 libraries signing license agreements to date.
In recent days, some of the Encore development partners have unveiled their work. You can now see Encore at Nashville Public Library, the Lillian Goldman Law Library at Yale University, and Michigan State University Libraries.
Binghamton University Libraries, which uses the ALEPH automation system, and the University of Kentucky, a Voyager library, both allow access within their internal network, but not to the general public.
While none of these libraries have put Encore into production use as their default catalog, the public availability of Encore marks a major milestone in this new product.
