Abstract: VTLS announce that over 100 customers have now selected Chamo Discovery, an advanced Social OPAC and unified Discovery tool integrated into a single solution. VTLS attributes the growing success of Chamo to its continually expanding capabilities, its high performance and enhanced user features. Chamo provides unified access to the library’s print and digital resources (including licensed resources) with sophisticated search capabilities, eBook circulation and interactive features that encourage social participation. Unlike other offerings Chamo Discovery is built into the library’s OPAC web interface allowing patrons reach beyond the library’s collection to access electronic resources across the web, including free and subscription content. The “OPAC-centric” design helps keep the focus on the library instead of the database provider.

"The company is excited to reach this milestone and is constantly working to improve Chamo for users of academic, public, government, corporate and special libraries around the world. Chamo has already proven to be an easy and successful interface for information access and forms a key component of our Open Skies Library Platform and yet can be used by existing Virtua users. This versatility is a convenience to our customers and a protection against obsolescence" stated Dr. Vinod Chachra, President and CEO of VTLS. "We anticipate growing demand for Chamo in the coming year."
