Cloud Computing in Libraries and Web-scale Library Management and Discovery


Abstract: This is an introduction to the concepts of cloud computing and how this suite of technologies is positioned to re-shape the way’s that libraries make use of strategic applications such as discovery and management applications. The instructor will describe the evolution of discovery systems from next-generation library catalogs that provided some improvements in the interfaces and performance of the established online catalogs toward the current wave of index-based or Web-scale discovery services. Major changes are also underway in the applications that libraries use to manage their operations and collections, with a new slate of library services platforms coming on the scene, providing an alternative to the integrated library systems that have been available for many decades.
