New library management systems are merging the traditional functions of a library catalog with functions of electronic resource management systems and more libraries are moving to these new systems. Librarians using two major library management systems will discuss their experience using their system for managing and retrieving data. Vendor representatives from the same major systems will discuss how the systems were designed to manage data.
At the end of this program, participants will...
1. Know how library management systems handle statistics on library collections
2. know how the systems report out data on library collections
3. Understand how vendors expect their respective systems to respond to library collection data
This program is targeted to those who work in acquisitions, cataloging, technical services, collection management, and other who are involved with collection assessment.
