We are so excited to now offer Colorado libraries a choice in cataloging systems with our newest cooperative purchase, SkyRiver!
We have worked with Innovative Interfaces, Inc. (III), the makers of SkyRiver, to discount pricing for libraries.
SkyRiver is a full service bibliographic utility that connects libraries with the metadata they need to catalog library collections. SkyRiver's ever-growing database contains more than 43 million full, unique records. Sophisticated matching algorithms minimize duplication and sub-standard records, saving catalogers time and reducing searching frustration.
A library's subscription to SkyRiver includes UNLIMITED use for a flat rate. No additional access fees! Catalog until your fingers cramp up!
At NO additional cost, CLiC will provide training and support for your library's implementation, should that be desired. Contact Kira for more information.

Special Pricing for Colorado Libraries
Why Consider SkyRiver?
While SkyRiver will be available to all of our member libraries, we believe it will be especially attractive to small and mid-sized libraries that have not been able to afford such services. CLiC also will be providing training and on-the-ground support for Colorado libraries that license SkyRiver. For the first time many Colorado libraries will have a new option for cataloging services and can get serious about their cataloging – which is proven to improve discoverability and access to YOUR collections by YOUR patrons. CLiC is here to help you.
