Next Generation Library Interfaces: Overview of concepts and an brief tour of commercial and open source products


Copyright (c) 2009 American Library Association

Abstract: As libraries compete in an ever more crowded landscape of information providers, it is essential for libraries to provide interfaces that resonate with today’s Web savvy users. One of the major trends in library automation today involves libraries embracing a new genre of next generation catalogs, often called discovery interfaces. Marshall Breeding will talk about the shortcomings of the older online catalogs that fuel the demand for next-generation interfaces, the features and functionality that have come to be expected in them, and the commercial and open source products that have emerged to fill this need.
