The web-scale library Cloud Computing enabling data-driven discovery and resource management


Copyright (c) 2012 Information Today

Abstract: 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.
