Migratory Behavior – Maintaining External Integration Amid an ILS Migration
To operate effectively, modern libraries have integrated their various internal systems with a myriad of external systems. While such integration allows libraries to deliver efficient, accurate, point-of-need services, it creates special challenges whenever the inputs or outputs from any of these systems are altered. One of the most significant alterations to this labyrinth of connected systems occurs when a library migrates to a new Integrated Library System (ILS).

To operate effectively, modern libraries have integrated their various internal systems with a myriad of external systems.

One of the most significant alterations to this labyrinth of connected systems occurs when a library migrates to a new Integrated Library System (ILS).
In addition to migrating internal data and workflows to the new ILS, the library must also manage the changes necessary to ensure that critical transfers of information with outside systems are maintained. This session will take a look at ILS migrations from the library acquisitions perspective focusing on the cooperative steps taken by libraries and vendors to ensure that order record downloads can continue, EDI invoice transfers are not interrupted, payment data can still be output to institutional financial systems, etc.
Panelists:
• Beth Bernhardt (Assistant Dean for Collection Management and Scholarly Communications, University of North Carolina, Greensboro Libraries – OCLC’s WorldShare Management System)

• Janet Morrow (Head, Resource and Discovery Services, Northeastern University Snell Library – Ex Libris’ Alma)

• Deborah Silverman (New Business Development Manager, Library Technical Services at YBP Library Services – Various Systems)

Please bring questions for the panel and join the discussion!

Discussion Midwinter Interest Group Summary, Presentations and Discussion Questions

by Sadie Williams on Wed, Feb 23, 2011 at 02:12 pm

The Interest Group met to discuss Patron Driven Acquisitions (also known as Demand Driven Acquisitions) models more broadly through a panel discussion comprised of library representatives currently participating in patron driven acquisitions programs and with a publisher who provides electronic monographic content. The goal of the session was first, to draw out discussion and to obtain feedback related to questions and topics for the ALA Annual Pre-Conference Workshop hosted by the ALCTS Technology Committee.

The Interest Group met to discuss Patron Driven Acquisitions (also known as Demand Driven Acquisitions) models more broadly through a panel discussion comprised of library representatives currently participating in patron driven acquisitions programs and with a publisher who provides electronic monographic content. The goal of the session was first, to draw out discussion and to obtain feedback related to questions and topics for the ALA Annual Pre-Conference Workshop hosted by the ALCTS Technology Committee. The day-long pre-conference workshop is titled: Patron Driven Acquisitions in Academic Libraries: Maximizing Technology to Minimize Risk. The second goal for the IG Midwinter meeting was to promote the workshop to our attendees.

 

The panel consisted of the following participants:

 

- Bill Kara, Head, E-Resources & Serials Management and Boaz Theodor Nadav-Manes, Head,  Acquisitions Services/Philosophy Selector , Cornell University Library

- David Givens, Acquisitions Coordinator, Loyola University Chicago Libraries

- Carl Merat, Head, Collection Management, Liberty University Library

- Lenny Allen, Director of Sales, Wholesale & Online, Oxford University Press

 

Audience participants included librarians who are currently using a patron driven acquisitions model or who are considering a program and ebook and materials vendors who actively supporting these models.  The combined interests among attendees created a uniquely active discussion throughout the session.

 

Topics of discussion included:

-     High level overviews of varying library workflows for patron driven acquisitions including users of the three major patron driven platforms;

-     Experiences with spending controls;

-     How to structure the funding of pilot projects and ongoing use of this model;

-     How to integrate demand driven models into traditional purchase models;

-     How a PDA model might positively or negatively effect scholarly publishing.

 

Expressed needs from panelists and audience to support model included but were not limited to:

 

-     More definitive tools for predicting expenditure;

-     More data on the continued use of PDA materials after pilot completion;

-     Changes to WorldCat Local and how holdings are set in this environment;

-     Better understanding of users and discoverability of PDA materials;

-     Good duplication control.

 

Presentation Slides and Questions are attached.
