The post below from last month prompts me to ask to what extent “Reading List” solutions  (as opposed to Course reserves) are being adopted in the US. These have been a key “Trend in Library Automation” in the UK and have achieved a high adoption level. In some cases a library pays more for the Reading List solution than their ILS or their discovery service. They are certainly perceived as having high value. 

 

I know Washington State signed up for ExLibris Leganto in January (http://www.exlibrisgroup.com/default.asp?catid={916AFF5B-CA4A-48FD-AD54-9AD2ADADEB88} <http://www.exlibrisgroup.com/default.asp?catid=%7b916AFF5B-CA4A-48FD-AD54-9AD2ADADEB88%7d&details_type=1&itemid=%7b960D9786-F841-4FF8-902C-FEA80FB94C6B%7d> &details_type=1&itemid={960D9786-F841-4FF8-902C-FEA80FB94C6B} ) “WSU will be able to optimize the use of library resources and simplify the process of building and supporting course resource lists, including the automation of copyright clearance” . Are any other institutions looking at this kind of solution? 

 

I’d very much appreciate a perspective for ‘Higher Education Library Technology’ (HELibTech). The ‘Reading List’ entry is here: http://helibtech.com/Reading_Resource+lists 

Thanks

Trends in Library Automation

 

Instructor: Mandy Henk

Dates: March 6-31, 2017

Credits: 1.5 CEUs

Price: $175

The integrated library system (ILS) has undergone dramatic changes in recent years. Transitioning one of our primary tools from a mature, client-based system into a newly architected Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud based system, vendors are transforming how we do our daily work. This class will give students an opportunity to step back and reflect on what that means and where this change is leading us. We will begin with a general historical overview of both the ILS software itself and the market that sprang up to provide it. From there we will explore the evolution of the software into its mature form and the consolidation of the market over time into a few large players. We will look briefly at what the ILS did well and what it never managed to do, before we turn our attention to the move to the cloud and the more recent “library services platform” style automation tools. We will carefully examine the SaaS model of software delivery and how this model impacts our ability to provide high levels of service to our users while maintaining privacy and security. The class will conclude with a look at current market offerings, including open source options.

 

At the end of this class students will understand:

- The role that the ILS played in library automation in the previous century and its early evolution

- The final form of the ILS as a client based system

- How the SaaS model of software delivery works and be able to discuss the impact this model has on library software

- What the new “library services platform” automation tools are and how they are different from the traditional ILS

- The market as it stands now for cloud based SaaS automation tools

What open source options are available and the pros and cons of participating in them

 

 

Librarian Mandy Henk has been at DePauw since 2006 and was a law librarian at Vanderbilt before that. She specializes in access to physical materials, resource sharing, and personnel management.

This is an online class that is taught asynchronously, meaning that participants do the work on their own time as their schedules allow. The class does not meet together at any particular times, although the instructor may set up optional sychronous chat sessions. Instruction includes readings and assignments in one-week segments. Class participation is in an online forum environment.
