Copyright (c) 2015 Minitex
Abstract: As libraries continue to evolve their collections and services to meet the changing realities around them, so also must the technologies upon which they depend for their work. Marshall Breeding will provide his views on the current landscape of the strategic technology products currently available in the field and the companies that develop and support them. The presentation will draw on the Library Systems Report 2015 recently published in American Libraries, the annual Library Automation Perceptions Survey, and other resources and reports. Trends related to the management of library collections, discovery services, and resource sharing will be explored.
