Medium to Visit Library


Pioneer Consortium Workshops

Pioneer is working with PTFS on a spring 2017 migration to Bibliovation, a dramatic improvement to our ILS including a new discovery layer, cataloging module and improved workflows. Bibliovation isn’t just an ILS, but an LSP – Library Services Platform. This is next gen functionality and adaptability for a fraction of the price of proprietary systems.
If you have not considered joining the Pioneer Consortium in the past, now is the time to take a closer look.
