questions and discussion
Questions and Discussion
  • Most current ILS systems are out of date
    • Old code
    • Last generation technology
    • No means for innovation (dwindling market)
    • Do NOT handle digital content well
    • Do not function at an enterprise level with current ERP systems
  • Which direction should libraries be pushing toward in regards to enterprise functionality for the academic arena?
