Feedback from delegates was again overwhelmingly positive, with many expressing their appreciation for the opportunity to meet with other Liberty users, have a voice in the development of the library management system and to get new ideas that they can apply to their own libraries.

“Your sessions were very helpful and I have full confidence we have chosen the best LMS for HERA, as the support John, James and yourself provided is outstanding,” said Musarrat Begum, Librarian at HERA.

The agenda for the full day Liberty National User Conference began with Sarah Thompson (Technical Services Manager). Sarah ran through the new Liberty features that will soon be released.

Users were excited by the features and pleased to hear that many of the features will be available very soon!

Later in the day James Martin, Softlink IC’s Development Manager, expanded on the Liberty new features discussion. During his presentation, James asked the community how Liberty could be enhanced.

The delegates came up with some very interesting ideas, and we’d like to thank all the librarians who contributed for their input. Customer feedback and guidance has always been an important consideration in our product development.”
