Integrated Library Systems Support (Voyager)
The Integrated Library System (ILS) is the management platform for all serial and monograph activity at Yale University Library (YUL). The platform is also used for the acquisition of electronic resources at YUL. The service is used by every library under Yale Library. The Lillian Goldman Law Library in Memory of Sol Goldman is administratively separate and does not use Voyager.
The ILS runs on Ex Libris Voyager, which comprises three primary modules: acquisitions, cataloging, circulation. The system also contains a public user interface known as the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC). The Voyager ILS is supported by Ex Libris managed by YUL.
A variety of custom applications and reporting tools (e.g. Red Green Light), services (e.g. Voyager OAI Provider), and integrations (e.g. Quicksearch, Workday, Banner) have been developed locally that augment core product functionality. These custom solutions are closed source, locally developed, and self supported.
