The Innovative Approach to Library Experience
Helping libraries connect and communicate with all users
Vega Connect establishes a foundation that brings together the key components of the library’s enterprise – linking basic library controls with modern user engagement. It helps staff manage all aspects of the library seamlessly, providing a state-of-the-art context engine for linking data, a messaging engine, and an extended view of all patron activities.
Finding, checking out, and reading is all a simple, intuitive experience with Vega Discover. By combining a clean display with modern data standards, it provides a more user-friendly, intelligent presentation of library data, rolling all formats for a given title into a single display.
Vega Interact ensures two-way conversation is at the heart of the library experience. It quickly guides users to locations and hours, finds titles via Discover, provides assistance via chatbot and/or librarian, and even integrates with digital assistants such as Alexa.
Vega Promote keeps the user well informed through targeted and relevant communication across multiple channels, including email, text, notifications, and direct messaging. With Promote, you can easily run campaigns, communicate program information, create websites and landing pages, as well as fundraise.
Managing and directing the continuous array of today’s library activities, events, and programs is an ongoing challenge. Vega Program enables staff to integrate, manage, and create discoverable library events, weaving them into the library experience and beyond the meeting room into the community.
Vega Analyze is designed to guide users and the system to successful outcomes, ensuring satisfaction and elevating the library experience. With Analyze, you can quantify the value of the library through data and analytics, demonstrating ROI and expanding your offerings in a way that meets community needs.

We found that the Sierra system offered a lot of flexibility with the library catalog so that we could do all the redesigning that we dreamed about doing.
