This panel will present a Collaboration to develop a new, modern open source library services platform. Comprised of vendors and libraries, the Collaboration is re-defining the integrated library system (ILS). The traditional ILS includes functionality and modules that are tightly integrated, delivering an ‘all in one’ approach for library management. But has this old model run its course? Would libraries benefit from a new model based on openness, allowing for choice of applications from multiple providers, both vendors and libraries alike? Join this panel to learn about an open source platform that will change the library industry at its core.
