Aspen Discovery

Aspen Discovery is a fully-featured, open source discovery system, which provides comprehensive access to your library’s resources. It gives patrons a single search box and smart search results that group all formats of a title together, allowing the patron to easily get access to their preferred version.

Aspen Discovery integrates with your ILS and with a wide range of econtent providers including Library Market, OverDrive, Hoopla, and cloudLibrary. It also can pull in enriched content from a variety of sources such as Novelist and Syndetics.

Aspen Discovery is a great option for libraries in search of an out-of-the-box discovery layer with a companion mobile app, LiDA, fully integrated with the discovery layer.

Equinox provides everything you need to effectively use Aspen Discovery at your library: hosting, data migration, training, ongoing support, and software development. Talk to us about implementing Aspen Discovery.
