We are now live with our Syndetics Unbound Catalog Enhancement. This change was recommended by the Central Library/Collection Development Advisory Committee and approved by the Directors Association in November 2018. Syndetics Unbound provides a comprehensive solution for providing the elements that make a record more interesting, connected and relevant to users in our online catalog. The service provides cover images, summaries, author info., ‘look inside’, series, ‘you may also like’, professional reviews, reader reviews, other available formats, tags, reading level, awards, shelf browse and more.
