Orion Township Public Library Launches New Website with Vega Promote Web

Innovative, part of Clarivate, is thrilled to share that the Orion Township Public Library in Michigan has gone live with its new Vega Promote Web website.

"Our previous website served us well for nearly a decade but had become extremely dated, and a handful of the third-party add-ons we relied on were no longer being maintained. We were well overdue for a rebuild," said Steve Saunders, Head of Information Technology at Orion Township Public Library.

"We were really impressed with Innovative's vision for the direction of Vega Promote Web and were eager to help guide the development of what has the potential to be an extremely well-integrated public catalog and public website experience for patrons," he added.

Just as the Vega Promote Web project was getting underway, the Orion Township Public Library suffered a ransomware attack, and while the library recovered their data quickly, their previous website's performance began to degrade to the point where it became unusable. As a result, implementation of the new site happened more quickly than originally planned.

"The drag-and-drop WYSIWYG ["what you see is what you get"] nature of the Promote Web backend made the process of recreating large chunks of our site pretty quick and painless, and we've been able to get a new and improved site up and running in a very short period of time," Steve explained.

Vega Promote Web gives libraries autonomy to create and manage their own websites, where they can easily showcase their ever-evolving services, programs, and resources. By empowering libraries to modernize their digital presence, Vega Promote Web helps bolster community engagement by creating an interactive and integrated online user experience across the library website and the library's other online tools.

It includes many built-in features like drag-and-drop design, a content management system, accessibility checking, and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) assistance, along with enterprise-grade performance, security, and reliability. It also comes with library-specific integrations such as patron account management and Vega Discover showcases and passthrough search.

Vega Promote Web is one of the modules in the Vega Library Experience (LX) platform and can be implemented independently or in connection with other Vega LX modules and Innovative's library management solutions Polaris and Sierra. Vega Promote Web is available today for libraries of all types. To learn more, contact Innovative.
