Jerusalem, Israel – June 25, 2009. Ex Libris Group is pleased to announce the general release of version 7.1 of the Voyager integrated library system (ILS). The new features introduced in version 7.1 extend WebVoyáge capabilities and tighten the integration of Voyager with other Ex Libris solutions—the Primo discovery and delivery solution and the Rosetta digital preservation system—as well as with third-party systems and services.
Many Voyager 7.1 enhancements were requested by the Voyager user community which worked closely with Ex Libris on the definition of this product version. Highlights include:
Andrew Brown, information systems librarian at Swansea University, and a field tester of Voyager 7.1, commented: "Voyager 7.1 is a key release for Swansea University as it is perfectly timed for our summer rollout of new RFID units with payment facilities. Enhanced SIP 2 support in Voyager will enable our users to pay fines and fees through these new self service units."
"Like all new Ex Libris releases, Voyager 7.1 delivers a wide range of customer-requested enhancements, and supports our commitment to the Ex Libris open-platform program," explained Mike Dicus, Voyager product manager. "The recent meeting of customer developers and Ex Libris developers in our Chicago offices highlighted some of the locally developed enhancements that the open interfaces in Voyager have made possible. The new APIs in version 7.1 will provide even more tools for customers to use in extending Voyager in creative ways. And by integrating more tightly with Primo and Rosetta, Voyager 7.1 will further enhance the seamless provision of services to library staff and users. We have a very active release schedule for Voyager – Voyage 7.2 is due out before the end of the year, and we have already begun working on the planned enhancements for version 8."
