Latest Version of Inmagic Presto for Social Libraries Offers Improved Framework for Managing Library Collections

Enhanced “Social OPAC” integrates library workflow, information management, and collections publishing with social functionality

WOBURN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Inmagic® Presto for Social Libraries builds upon the latest version of the company’s Social Knowledge Networks (SKN) application, Inmagic Presto, enabling non-technical library and information professionals to create social libraries that collect, organize, manage, share, and socialize information assets.

The integration of social media capabilities with library workflow and information management extends the value, and fundamentally changes the significance, relevancy, and usefulness of the library. In addition to traditional library workflow capabilities, Presto for Social Libraries integrates SKN capabilities to provide a framework for managing and enhancing library collections, augmenting “top-down” vetted information with “bottom-up” social information for improved knowledge preservation.

Presto for Social Libraries allows organizations to fully utilize their library assets, making them available for easy access, discovery, and socialization,” says Dave Golan, Vice President of Library Solutions and Client Services for Inmagic. “Through Presto for Social Libraries, our customers can create an environment that yields higher levels of effectiveness by tapping into the richness of a socialized knowledge repository.”

The functionality of Presto for Social Libraries combines the latest knowledge publishing and discovery capabilities of Presto, with the rich library management capabilities of Inmagic’s Genie technology, including:

* Advanced serials functionality: Capabilities include arrival date prediction, routing lists, and workflow.

* Easier configurability: Updates to functions such as report-driven batch e-mail and alternate search syntax for easier library administration.

* Improved SharePoint compatibility: Search SharePoint content from Presto (and vice versa) for broader information access.

* Improved user experience: RSS feed enhancements include a customizable display with descriptions, images, and metadata details.

* Simpler federated search management: Users can easily create federated search adapters to access external content, such as subscriptions, journals, and research information.

* Robust security: Reduces risk through better security and management of the SKN.

* Enhanced community and profiles: “People” are a searchable content type. Additional profile customization and personalization capabilities make finding subject matter experts easy.

Presto for Social Libraries is the industry’s first true social library, using a SOPAC (Social Online Public Access Catalog) to provide a unique framework for managing and enhancing library collections. Today, Presto for Social Libraries remains at the forefront of transforming traditional libraries into true productivity hubs.
