With the ever-forward drive of new technologies and unique circumstances of each organization, the role of librarians varies widely and evolves rapidly. Three leading experts in the field of library systems and technology and three from information services present key themes and lead an active discussion with audience members about the changing role of information and systems librarians today, what it means for the future, and the risks, rewards, and realities of the journey

A301 – Web-Scale Library

Wednesday, October 24, 2012 10:30 AM – 11:15 AM

Marshall Breeding, Independent Consultant and Founder of Library Technology Guides, Founder of Library Technology Guides

One of the main vectors of change in library automation involves the emergence of a new slate of products that move libraries away from locally housed systems to global platforms. These new library services platforms offer libraries an opportunity to operate less in self-contained silos of data and functionality but rather to work in broad web-scale environments of highly shared data, unified workflows across the physical, digital, and electronic materials that comprise their collections. Discovery services have led the way toward this web-scale approach, and now library management is traveling a similar path. Breeding presents a conceptual overview of this new model of library automation and a practical update on the products and services within this new genre, providing their current status of development or deployment.
