Thinking About Your Next Automated System
Tuesday, September 13, 2005
The library automation marketplace is constantly changing, and not everyone has time to track all the latest developments. This session will bring you up to date on the products and features available in integrated library systems (ILS) today. In addition to a review of the systems themselves, you will learn about a variety of strategies and sources for procuring ILS products: turnkey vendors, application service providers, local integration of multiple vendor products, and open source applications.
You will also get practical advice from a top library automation consultant on planning for a new system, including how to involve staff, preparing for the migration, the procurement process, and implementation timelines.
If you wonder whether now is the time to consider moving to a new system, this course will give you a solid framework for that decision. And if you already know there is a new system in your future, you can save time, money, and frustration by learning how to select and install it in accordance with modern best practices.
