Computer and Systems Architecture | Library and Information Science
In 2013, a consortium of small to medium academic libraries prioritized moving to a shared web-scale management system in order to enhance collaboration between the members and realign services within them. The group implementation required a creative approach to data migration and workflow analysis, facilitated by technological solutions as well as internal change management. Panelists representing the consortium, member libraries and vendor will discuss innovative resource sharing in a consortial web-scale system, data migration from disparate local systems into the shared system and e-resource knowledgebase, plus the potential for new developments regarding shared print and online collections.
