Open Forum: The Future of Library Systems
Join your NASIG colleagues discussing new options for ILS provision from open source providers, OCLC, and the Open Library Environment (OLE) Project. The discussion will center on what is available, what people think are the greatest potential with these options, and what
are the biggest challenges. Come and brainstorm some possible serial futures in an open-source or cooperative processing environment. How can we best take serials management into the cloud-computing and distributed networks of the near future?
