Odilo Simplicity

Odilo SP Logo

OdiloSimplicity is a modern and flexible OPAC that allows libraries to offer their patrons a catalog interface that provides discovery of both Print and Digital collections from a single pane of glass. Through API integration services, OdiloSimplicity brings together data from a wide range of sources such as the ILS, other digital lending platforms, subscription databases, other content sources, etc.

A modern discovery interface

OdiloSimplicity offers a modern interface that provides the best user experience for patrons. OdiloSimplicity discovery interface is characterized by the following features:

  • Cross browser support for most modern web browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera)
  • Responsive web design that adapts to desktops, laptops, smartphones, tablets and ereaders so users can have the same experience across multiple devices.
  • Use of AJAX to maximize and optimize page load times
  • Security: HTTPS is the default protocol
  • Customization of the interface (Custom themes, branding, layout, etc.)
  • Custom Carousels/Widgets such as: Just Arrived, Highest Rated, Most Viewed, Most Popular, etc.

A single catalog for all content

Libraries are currently managing content across multiple platforms and silos such as the ILS for physical materials, third party lending platforms for digital content, subscription databases, etc. This situation is forcing users to interact with several catalog interfaces to search, discover and access library materials. To solve this probelem, OdiloSimplicity offers:

  • Integration with OdiloTK and OdiloTT provides a native interface for the lending of digital and print materials from a single screen.
  • Integration with leading Integrated Library System (ILS) through the use of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), SIP2, MARC and other open standards technologies.
  • Integration with digital content lending platforms and subscription databases.

If your software application has an API, it will integrate with OdiloSimplicity. In addition, OdiloSimplicity allows the import and export of MARC files.

Social Features

The social features of OdiloSimplicity include:

  • Ability for users to rate content
  • Ability for users to add comments (library staff can moderate comments and remove inappropiate comments before publishing to the entire user base).
  • Ability to share content on social media outlets like Twitter,Facebook, Google+, etc.
