Features and Benefits

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).

Aspen supports customization at the library level, allowing libraries within a consortium to make different design and feature choices based on local needs. While Aspen is designed to be responsive to different screen sizes, the mobile app LiDA is included at no additional cost with the Discovery package.
