Lucidea to Release Exciting Showcase Feature; Curated Multimedia to Spark Curiosity

November 10, 2021 GMT

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 10, 2021--

Lucidea is the parent company to a full portfolio of market leading knowledge management, library automation, and museum and archives collections management software.

They’re pleased to announce the upcoming release of their innovative “Showcase” feature. This exciting enhancement enables archives, museum, and special library clients to offer curated content in a visual display with which users can interact—delivering an immersive experience that makes them want to know more.

Argus, ArchivEra, SydneyEnterprise, or GeniePlus client administrators can leverage this new feature to curate and showcase specific content or aspects of collections and then drive traffic further into the organization’s OPAC or Portal.


Create as many Showcases as you like with a compelling visual display, and include images from—and links to—items in your collection, plus outside resources such as YouTube videos or externally hosted audio files that will play within the Showcase.

Any Showcase can be either static or dynamic, e.g., an exhibit (static) or an evolving collection. Per Lucidea’s Neil Corris, Chief Technology Officer, “Anyone who has used ArchivEra, Argus, SydneyEnterprise, or GeniePlus will find the Showcase feature easy to use; it’s provided as a template, feels familiar, and there is no learning curve. Simply add, rearrange if/as you wish, and save.”


Make changes in real time for continuous updating and offer persistent URLs that link to specific records within your OPAC. Your Showcase could represent a period in time (e.g., the Victorian era), a corporate timeline (e.g., acquisitions and growth), a practice-focused resource collection, Continuing Legal or Medical Education materials, describe an exhibit, or even document objects and architecture out in the field. The possibilities are endless.

Lucidea’s Showcase feature will be available early in the New Year. They invite you to stay tuned for further communications as the release date approaches.
