- Clarifying simple and complex doubts
- Emergency trouble shooting and system recoveries
- Get newer updates/versions with enhanced functionalities and bug fixes.

Dear Patron:

Enter NGL 3.0

What's new in 3.0?
1. A major change in technologies used: NGL 3.0 uses Java 6.0, Apache Tomcat 6.0, Spring Framework, and Hibernate Framework.
2. For Bibliographic and Authority data searches NGL now uses Solr. Solr is the popular, blazing fast open source enterprise search platform from the Apache Lucene project. This makes your catalog searches very fast.
3. In Cataloging, you can now define your own data entry templates. We have already put a few frequently used templates.
4. You can define your own search indexes.
5. OPAC now displays Book covers, Google previews and is also integrated with Syndetics.
6. OPAC is Zotero compliant.
7. Mobile alerts: NGL can now be integrated to SMS gateways. Mobile alerts will be sent to user's mobiles at the time of check in and check out.
