Open Text Announces Livelink Collections Server Version 10

Jun 08, 2004


Open Text Corporation, a provider of enterprise content management (ECM) software, has introduced Version 10 of Livelink Collections Server, with specialized document collection and search capabilities for libraries, archives, research institutions, and other organizations managing stores of historical, technical, or research information. Livelink Collections Server's new features are designed to help organizations reduce costs, speed research collaboration, and improve information access. Open Text announced the news at the 95th Annual Special Libraries Association Conference underway this week, June 5-10, in Nashville, TN.

Livelink Collections Server provides a single, secure repository and specialized tools to manage large, complex documents and collections with dense subject matter and unique terminology. Version 10 offers features for research management, technical document publishing, content archiving, contract or patent information management, and litigation support. The solution also extends Livelink for Libraries (formerly Techlib), Open Text's advanced library automation application, and integrates with Livelink's other collaboration and content management tools.

Livelink Collections Server provides an expanded platform for Livelink for Libraries, adding its broad document collection features to the library automation application.  Designed for special libraries, Livelink for Libraries builds on traditional library automation tools such as cataloging, circulation, and serials control, with embedded support for digital collections. Document text, tables of contents, cover art, and reviews can be attached to catalog records for published materials or internal information assets.  

Customers can use Livelink Collections Server to store and display massive documents such as legal depositions and technical reports. A single text field of a Livelink Collections Server can handle documents of up to one million pages. Advanced caching features segment large documents into chunks, displaying only those portions needed by the user. Other Livelink Collections Server features include advanced security to protect valuable information, and an extensible Java/JDBC architecture, so customers can easily integrate and evolve their solutions over time.
