Are platforms eating the world?
Presenters will look at disruptive forces in the library technology industry, discuss how the Integrated Library System (ILS) may give way to a new paradigm where a platform with a multitude of applications may deliver new services to users, and look at changes that are underway in our industry today.
Bibliographic and Entitlement Records Under One Roof: The Making of a Kabalog
Panelists will discuss how FOLIO – a global community of libraries, vendors and individual contributors building an open platform for rethinking workflows, systems and services – conceives of a ‘Kabalog’, a unified data model and infrastructure for conventional bibliographic metadata and e-resource knowledge bases to harmonize needs of catalogs and knowledge bases.
Let’s think – and work – outside the box. Literally.
Panelists will discuss libraries’ reliance on monolithic ILS/LSPs, workflow solutions that address requirements outside the ILS/LSP, areas where the ILS/LSP is required yet should constitute only a small component of overall workflow and budget and new services that may emerge in a world no longer centered on traditional ILS/LSP workflows.
