Impact of Library Resource Management Trends for Technical Services


Copyright (c) 2014 New England Technical Services Librarians

Abstract: Breeding will give an update on the current trends in realm of resource management technologies.  A new genre of Library Services Platforms has emerged, with multiple products well into their implementation phase, though others remain in development.  Integrated Library Systems continue as the dominant type of product installed in most libraries.  Both revolutionary and evolutionary courses seem to be underway towards a goal of more modern approaches to resource management.  Any resource management tool must address the changing reality of libraries that are ever more involved with print and digital resources, with many seeing significant declines in acquisitions of print materials. New models of partnerships among institutions and shared infrastructure impact strategies on how libraries acquire, manage, and provide access to collections. Other topics addressed will include the how the work of technical services relates to Web-scale or index-based discovery services that the library might deploy.
