Encore 3.0

Share this on social media:

Innovative Interfaces says that it is working with its development partners on Version 3.0 of the Encore discovery services platform. It claims that this new version will expand the user experience with new features and product-integration points such as harvested digital collections, federated-search integration, user ratings and reviews, Pathfinder Pro context-sensitive links, and more.

Encore customers will be able to display OAI-PMH-compliant digital information with catalogue results using Encore harvesting tools. Version 3.0 also includes commitment to working with already installed discovery tools by providing integration of federated search products WebFeat and MetaLib. Community Reviews and Patron Ratings are also said to be coming to Encore and supplement the Community Tagging feature available in Version 2.0. Pathfinder Pro will provide context-sensitive links to library-selected resources based on user queries and item metadata to guide users to the best possible answer to their queries.
