Preparing for the Next Phase of Library Automation: Current Realities and Future Trends


Copyright (c) 2011 Consortium of Icelandic Libraries

Abstract: As libraries become increasingly involved with managing access to electronic content and as e-books become more popular in both the general population and for academic materials, libraries need much different technology infrastructure than when print materials dominated. E-books remain a difficult challenge for libraries. Licensing models, digital rights management, and other factors result in a radically different management approach for libraries than apply to their print collections. This presentation will cover some of the new developments underway to transform the integrated library system into a more comprehensive and flexible platform for managing library materials and how discovery services embody similar qualities for providing access to library materials.
