- Patrons to benefit from compelling search and discovery interface
SEATTLE, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Stichting Bibliotheek.nl (BNL), the national foundation for public libraries
in the Netherlands, has selected ProQuest business Serials Solutions® to adapt AquaBrowser® as an additional
custom end-user interface to BNL's new national catalog (NBC) for print, digital and electronic collections. Based on
a single unified index, the NBC will enable patrons to seamlessly search the local collections (books, journals,
ebooks, games, CDs, etc.) of member libraries as well as commercial and open source electronic data sources
provided by the BNL. Serials Solutions was chosen to provide the interface for the new catalog based on its
success with the similar Open Vlacc project with Bibnet, an organization of the Flemish government.
