About Vega

Vega Discover is Innovative’s new discovery platform for the online public access catalog. This platform is scheduled to replace Encore in 2023.

The Mid-Hudson Library System has signed on as a development partner and will be among the first libraries to use Vega. We have been working with the rest of the development partners to advise Innovative’s development team on the key ingredients, features, and functions that we think will make a better patron experience. See the links below for more information about how it works.

Stay tuned for more information about Vega Connect, a foundational element of the Vega platform that includes the extensions of our current records and a staff interface.

Testing access is already available! See the new catalog here

The Poughkeepsie Public Library District (PPLD) was our first library to use the new catalog as a MHLS pilot site. As of June 2022, there are now six pilot libraries

We will be updating you on Vega at most meetings and training will take place prior to our launch date, which is targeted for 2022.

Below is the timeline for launch. The dates listed are conservative, and we expect to be updating this prediction soon.
