Library Services: Intersearch
Using the best available open source components and our own integration systems, we create well rounded solutions for libraries.
Intersearch is the name given to our line of library management software: we have integrated our own specialist applications with the best of open-source offerings in the information management software space.
Our products and services are tailored to the needs and preferences of each library. We can assist and train librarians with all levels of technological expertise. We are experts at a range of library metadata formats and ontologies.
Our flagship open-source services are the Koha Library Management System, choice of thousands of libraries around the world, and the DSpace repository for digital library holdings. These are teamed with Prosentient's own systems: Interloans, Interdocs and Interpublish.
Our inter-library loans system, Interloans, is used by hundreds of libraries in the region including the GratisNet and ALIES networks.
These applications are available as single products that can be configured and hosted for a low monthly fee or as a comprehensive package integrating with existing systems and workflow as required.
Common examples of integration include:
- using Koha to index e-resources stored in DSpace to provide a unified catalogue of library holdings
- integrating Koha with Interloans, allowing small libraries to band together and offer inter-library loans
- integrating Interloans with Interdocs to facilitate document delivery
