What's New


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

  • Cover Upload — upload images to the Syndetics Unbound image repository with an easy drag and drop upload tool. Add an image where one is missing or replace an incorrect or low-quality image. Read more in our blog post here.
  • Audio clips — an addition to Look Inside that includes an audio player that contains a sample sound bite from the audiobook, so that patrons can hear an excerpt. Read more in our blog post here.
  • Librarian Recommends: Lists—a new enrichment in Syndetics Unbound, free to subscribers, that allows librarians to curate lists within the catalog, showcasing topics, genres, staff picks, and more. Lists can also be showcased outside the catalog, on library or catalog homepages. Read more in our blog post here.
  • Display Syndetics Unbound on your search results pages — In addition to displaying on bib detail pages, Syndetics Unbound can also appear in an abbreviated form on search result pages. Read more in our blog post here.
