Aspen Offers a New Patron Experience on WYLDcat

Oct 14, 2022

A new discovery tool is coming to the Wyoming State Library’s online catalog, WYLDcat. Learn about the new features that will be available to staff and patrons in this recorded webinar conducted by ByWater Solutions.

One of the foremost issues identified by the 2020 ILS Review project was the desire to find a new discovery layer for the WYLDcat online catalog. The State Library undertook an extensive look at other solutions for discovery and Aspen Discovery, an open source solution hosted by ByWater Solutions, rose to the top.

Aspen presents an attractive, intuitive layout with thoughtful, user-centered design. Aspen combines the library catalog with e-content, digital archives, and enrichment from all major third-party providers. It also improves relevancy and ease of use, provides native reading recommendations, and displays all formats of titles within one result (FRBR).
