What's New

We're constantly developing and improving Syndetics Unbound. Here's what's new:

  • "Get This Widget" — Copy widgets from this LibGuide into your Syndetics Unbound Admin account, to use on your library's website.
  • Multi-language support — Interface available in 22 languages, and will switch accordingly when patrons select their language on your catalog.
