Innovative, part of Clarivate, is excited to share that more than 30 libraries have now launched LX Starter for modern and professionally designed patron email notices. LX Starter enables libraries to set up email notices tailored to each library system's branding and personalized to their patrons.
St. Joseph County Public Library in Indiana is one of the dozens of libraries now using LX Starter. "We found the LX Starter implementation process to be reasonably straightforward," said Shanti Nand, Technical Services Manager at St. Joseph County Public Library. "We're very glad to have email notices that are now much easier to update and maintain. Both patrons and staff are enjoying the new look of our new email notices!"
Included with the Polaris and Sierra integrated library systems, LX Starter offers libraries a way to modernize their existing patron email notices with better engagement tools and performance metrics. LX Starter also includes available cover art from Syndetics Unbound for items in the collection to give patrons a visual accounting of their items and a more engaging notice experience.
LX Starter is now available for implementation by single-system libraries installed on the latest Polaris or Sierra releases (as appropriate) and located in the United States. Libraries who meet these criteria and are interested in joining an implementation cohort can register for LX Starter in person at the Innovative Users Group 2023 annual conference or contact their account manager.
General availability for implementation is planned gradually, and all libraries eligible for registration will be contacted when they are eligible for registration.
