integrated library systems, system migration, usability
Libraries are in a state of flux and the integrated library system (ILS) is no exception. In their quest to provide greater access to resources and remain relevant, libraries are somewhat driving this new innovation in systems. We need systems that provide greater interoperability and flexibility to provide a similar user experience that patrons are seeing online elsewhere such as Google and Amazon. This is where still developing cloud based systems come in. These new 21st century systems include OCLC’s Worldshare Management Services (WMS). This looks at one 21st century library system and also share one library’s migration experience.
