the benefits of sharing tbos
The Benefits of Sharing (TBOS)
  • Jisc funded project 2012-13
  • “To investigate how a shared library management system might improve services in Scotland”
    • Services to students, researchers, staff, public
    • Systems
    • Content
  • “significant level of support from Scottish LMS staff to work with a shared LMS”
  • Key benefits in all three areas identified

http://libraryblogs.is.ed.ac.uk/benefitsofsharing/

library services platform
“Library Services Platform”
  • Trendy new term to replace LMS!
  • Different approach to “traditional” LMS needed:
    • Design – more than print, leverage new technology
    • Wider scope
    • The information “ecosystem”
  • Immature market
    • Few early adopters

scurl library services platform task force
SCURL Library Services Platform Task Force
  • Set up summer 2013
  • Two main tasks:
    • Draft a vision
      • What we want to share and what not
      • High level benefits
    • Develop a business plan
  • Task Force completion summer 2013
    • Then….procurement & implementation (… we hope!)

vision components
Vision Components
  • Build on existing shared service strengths (e.g. SHEDL)
  • Promoting access to significant national collections
  • Consistent single Discovery layer beyond keyword search
    • Personalisation and customisation
  • Single point of access to resources
    • No “dead ends”
  • Better value for money
    • shared workflows, metadata & economies of scale
  • “Vanguard” approach to implementation
other activities
Other Activities
  • Meetings with suppliers and potential suppliers
    • Different approaches out there
    • Timing when to go to market will be crucial
  • Liaising with similar groups
    • Wales and Bloomsbury
  • Governance, exit strategies, cost allocation
  • Task Force members becoming a team

Opportunity?

Improved system

options
Options
  • Functionality we don’t currently have is on offer:
    • Discovery layer
    • Reading lists
    • Greater capabilities
  • FE are already considered partners in this process and as likely users of any services implemented
  • Possibility of taking steps toward national library services
  • Opting in to use the service can happen at anytime
  • Does not have to be a quick decision – early adopters of any new service will not adopt before 2015
