Bridge 3.0 Release

We are pleased to announce the General Availability of Bridge 3.0.

This release of Bridge is a reimplementation using technologies which allow us to plan for the future of Bridge development. We have chosen to migrate Bridge to the Java platform to provide the flexibility required for the next library integration standard for self service, whether that is SIP3, BIC Library Communication Framework or another industry supported standard.

This reimplementation continues to provide the solid performance that has been experienced with previous releases, and continues to support the customisations chosen in your system.

The Features document for this release is available on our website, and the customer portal.

Please raise a service request through the My Support Portal to schedule your upgrade.

    Can we expect this blog to also address the integration of the LMS desktop software – client or browser based – with the RFID supplier solutions by whatever means (Windows, SIP2 – BLCF?) for working outside the self-service devices?

    Hi John,

    The Bridge blog is really about intergration solutions with self-service devices, and will almost certainly cover the BIC Library Communication Framework, since that also sits within this space.

    Integration with dekstop devices, such as any of the RFID technology solutions which library staff may use with our staff interface, would be discussed in those product areas. Typically this would be covered through the product release content.

    Regards, -Anthony
