Syndetics Unbound

Lewis and Clark Library (LCL) in Helena, MT launched the Infor Iguana search portal for their Catalog in 2017.

In addition to the inherent rich search and self-service features provided natively in Iguana, LCL have also recently implemented Syndetics Unbound data enrichment.

Syndetics Unbound subscriptions are available directly through Infor for Infor Library customers and include fully seamless integration in Iguana. Like Iguana, Syndetics Unbound has a responsive design so it is mobile ready. It is also WCAG 2.0 AA compliant.



Data enrichment features of Syndetics Unbound include all of the Syndetics Classic such as:

  • Cover Images
  • Table of Contents
  • Author Notes
  • Professional Book Reviews
  • First Chapters and Excerpts
  • Series
  • Video & Music
  • etc.

PLUS additional features of LibraryThing for Libraries including:

  • You May Also Like
  • Tags
  • Browse Shelf
  • Reader Reviews
  • Reading Level
  • Also Available As
  • More by This Author
  • Awards



No additional cataloging or meta-data entry is required by the library. All data enrichment is driven from existing information in your bibliographic records (ISBN, ISSN and UPC).

Syndetics Unbound comes with a Comprehensive Self-Service Admin Tool which allows the library to select which elements to display in your Catalog and to fine tune the look and feel of the elements as well as viewing detailed statistics of your patron’s Syndetics Unbound usage.

Matt Beckstrom, Systems Manager and Librarian, of Lewis and Clark Library stated “Implementing Syndetics Unbound was an easy decision for us. We are able to offer our patrons so much more information to help guide their discovery, for very little effort and very little increase in cost. Our patrons and staff both love it!”
