LTFL Reviews now works with iBistro and Voyager catalogs

When we decided to add Reviews as an enhancement to LibraryThing for Libraries, we wanted to work on just a few OPACs at a time.

Otherwise, it would be 2010 before we finished Reviews (and no one wanted that). We started with Horizon Information Portal and WebPac, for a number of reasons*. Next, we decided to get iBistro and Voyager† on board.

We've had a couple of iBistro libraries add the Reviews Enhancement, but no Voyager libraries are live yet. You can check out the full list here.

* We knew the systems well, many libraries use them, and who doesn't like saying HIP?
† I can't talk about that particular OPAC without pronouncing it 'vee-ger' in my head. I'm pretty sure it's just me.

It's not just you. I worked on a conversion to Voyager in the '90s, and I called it V-ger all the time.

Nobody got it.

I worked in a Voyager library for six years, and the V-ger reference was common on the user group listserv, though I suspect that a relatively small percentage knew the source (most probably thought it a simple shortening of the name).

Thanks for bringing up a good memory!
