Mr Hillary Noye, Director of Business Development said the Softlink team looked forward to exhibiting the latest innovations in our suite of knowledge performance platforms for special and academic libraries as well as OverDrive's extensive digital resource solutions.

"We are proud of Liberty v5's continual development and its diverse digital and physical resource, equipment and asset tracking functionality," Hillary said.

"Liberty now exceeds some best-in-breed solutions in terms of current awareness and customisation, particularly at its price point.

"Liberty enables libraries looking for a flexible, cost-effective solution. It is a great solution for libraries that have experienced budget cuts and need to save costs but not lose service delivery capability."

Mr Dion Dias, Softlink Product Development Analyst said delegates looking to gain greater value from their request, knowledge services and research desks would benefit from illumin.

"illumin improves process efficiency, reducing duplication and saving costs. It enables service areas to master their request management functions and provide greater transparency of bottom-line business value from these services."
