Carla Clark is a Product Manager with SirsiDynix. Prior to joining SirsiDynix, Carla served as the Library Systems Administrator and Manager of the Access Services division at Louisiana State University in Shreveport.
Xiaoyan Song is the Electronic Resource Librarian at North Carolina State University (NCSU) Libraries. She’s been leading NCSU’s local CORAL Working Group on completion of a series of CORAL enhancements. She has served on CORAL Web Committee for a few years and has just started her service on CORAL Steering Committee recently.
Heather Wilson is the Acquisitions & Electronic Resources Librarian at Caltech Library. There, she serves on a team of librarians and developers who manage an evolving local CORAL tool. Wilson has also served on the CORAL Steering Committee and the Web Committee since 2016, and more recently, she began serving in a new role as the Community Outreach Coordinator for CORAL.
At SirsiDynix, Carla oversees development of the web-based circulation and mobile circulation clients, and she coordinates the company’s development efforts for CORAL. For customers who need tools to manage electronic resources, SirsiDynix offers hosting and support services for CORAL. Carla will talk about how SirsiDynix reached the decision to leverage an open-source system to satisfy customer requirements, and the mutually beneficial partnership that has developed between SirsiDynix and the CORAL developer community.
The Acquisition and Discovery department at NCSU Libraries have been using CORAL to manage acquisition and other technical services workflows since 2013. In this session, Song will share how CORAL has helped streamline their technical service workflows, especially the acquisition workflows. She’ll also touch on lessons learned from their participation in the CORAL project.
While many libraries are seeking to centralize their systems, Caltech Library focuses more on building connections between existing systems through metadata enhancement and integrations. CORAL has become a central part of that approach, allowing the Library to capture unique collection information and bring in metadata from existing systems. In this session, Wilson will discuss how Caltech’s involvement in the development, governance, and community of CORAL have helped the library build stronger tools for local system integration.
