Attendees of the annual Polaris Users Group (PUG) conference last week were given an in-depth look at the results of the ILS provider’s integration efforts with the 3M Cloud Library, as well as other new features in the system’s latest version, Polaris 4.1. The vision for the integration effort, Polaris President and CEO Bill Schickling explained during his opening presentation, was simply to create a system that would allow patrons to check out ebooks directly from a library’s OPAC, using library authentication information and nothing more.
