This sounds like a great change/upgrade! I would be interested in learning more about Aspen and what "customizations" would come with the $2500. Also, is the $2500 per year or a one-time fee? I can't guarantee that we would go with the upgrade versus the cheaper version, but am very interested in finding out more. 

Thank you for your feedback! It would be an annual fee. If you are attending IHLS Member Day on November 17, please stop by the Bywater Solutions booth in the exhibit hall to get a brief demo of Aspen!

We are very excited about the possibilities Aspen Discovery presents. Integration of Polaris with our digital resources would be a wonderful upgrade. We're open to spending $2,500 for this service and customization.

I viewed a video on their site.  It looks like a great product, but $2,500 is pretty steep for us as a small library.  We'd need to know if this is yearly, what comes with the $2,500 and not in the $250, etc. I like the idea of customization, but not sure we could swing the price

I wonder if there is anyway to scale pricing like we do for Cloud Library??

O'Fallon is all in on this.  Thanks for doing all the leg work.  

Viewed the YouTube demo - definitely makes the PAC more visually appealing and helpful to patrons. Some of the benefits are options that patrons with the SHARE moblie app already receive/see.  I too have questions about the pricing - would the cost be $2500 every year for a library and does that come with all the bells/whistles? What does the base $250 include?   I love the integration with e-resources - so does that mean if we have Libby that those resources can be seen on the PAC? (If so - win win!)
