NISO Webinar: Embracing the Cloud: Real Life Examples of Library Cloud Implementation

DATE: February 8, 2012
TIME: 1:00pm – 2:30pm Eastern


Cloud computing, a concept that has leapt onto the scene in the last few years, is available to libraries in the form of hosted systems for an ILS or for e-resource access. These systems take advantage of cheaper computing power, increased availability of services such as Amazon Web Services, and new development strategies from library vendors. What does moving library information to a networked environment do to improve the overall management of the system? How can libraries leverage cloud-hosted and managed collections? Are there tradeoffs in terms of local control? Learn the answers to these and related issues at this webinar where speakers will discuss actual cloud implementations in library environments.
