Customer Testimonials

"Since implementing Syndetics Unbound in our Enterprise catalog in May 2017, MVLC has received positive feedback from our member libraries. MVLC library staff use the features in Syndetics Unbound to guide their patrons to new series and similar works based on interest and reading level. The staff enjoys the power of the intuitive interface, breadth of coverage, and quality reviews. They appreciate unique features like the tag library.

Syndetics Unbound uses our consortium's holdings to enhance discovery of the collections readily available at MVLC's member libraries. Given the diverse demographics within our communities, we are delighted that Syndetics Unbound offers an accessible interface that responds to the language selection within our catalog and updates its content labels accordingly.

Our usage statistics bear out our selection of Syndetics Unbound; patrons in MVLC communities are interacting with Syndetics Unbound content. We hope to enhance our experience with Syndetics Unbound by making it ever more visible within the catalog. MVLC will work with our member libraries to fully implement display widgets, which have the potential to drive traffic back to our catalog and through the door of MVLC's member libraries. The Syndetics Unbound team is unparalleled and we look forward to the continued development of this quality product."
