Sponsored by Businesswire

Vancouver-based software developer Lucidea attended this year’s SLA Conference and INFO-EXPO in Cleveland, OH. As Diamond sponsors, they delivered a comprehensive and exciting lineup of events and updates.

To kick things off, Lucidea’s Chief Sales Officer, David Golan, spoke briefly at the Plenary Session, stating,

“Lucidea has always considered the SLA Annual Conference an experience of mutual value. The conference provides Lucidea an opportunity to engage and learn from those on the front-line: librarians and information professionals using our tools, providing services, and supporting ever-changing content, research requests and environments.”

In the Exhibitor Hall, Lucidea’s specialists shared information on their full suite of innovative ILS and knowledge management solutions:

SydneyEnterprise. The most powerful unified ILS and KM platform, featuring a single venue for administrators and end users to manage and leverage knowledge assets, enhanced search and discovery, and optimized workflows.

GeniePlus. The perfect ILS for agile libraries—it empowers a small staff to deliver large-library impact, with an extensible, highly flexible platform.

Inmagic Presto. Knowledge management practitioners implement this solution to deliver enhanced search and discovery options, improved access to content, collaboration and sharing tools, and much more.

SLA attendees were the first to see Lucidea’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) Prototype

AI integration is coming to Lucidea’s product lineup soon—with automatic categorization capabilities leveraging IBM’s Watson. Easily configure it to categorize images or any text fields and create authority terms based on your preferred accuracy requirements. Use with newsfeeds, or remove your backlog by quickly organizing old databases and making them discoverable.

Panelists, Authors, Specialists

Lucidea once again hosted a series of events with a focus on helping special librarians become integral contributors to organizational success—including the sixth and seventh in their lineup of popular Hot Topics sessions: Don’t Just Be Integral: Be Aligned”, and Transformative, Integrated, Measurable Request Management”. Panelists represented the Educational Testing Service (ETS), the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), the Paul Martin Law Library at the University of Windsor, the National Safety Council, Hatch, Ltd., and ACT, Inc.

Lucidea’s well attended Theater Presentations included “Unlock Your Digital Vault and Create the Ultimate Knowledge Center”, and “Transformative Request Management—Measure What Matters”.

In addition to offering products and services that help ensure their clients’ sustainability and success, Lucidea offers many professional development options for special librarians, knowledge managers, and other information professionals, including a series of book and eBook offerings from Lucidea Press.

SLA attendees chatted with Stephen Abram, author of Succeeding in the World of Special Librarianship, and Stan Garfield, author of Proven Practices for Implementing a Knowledge Management Program for book signing and conversation.

Lucidea team members were at their very busy booth throughout the conference, demonstrating unrivaled library automation and knowledge management products, purpose-built to accommodate every budget and organization size.
