D304: Library Tech = More Community Time

2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Michelle D'Couto, Lead Product Manager, Ex Libris, a ProQuest Company

Digital resources are dominating library collections and changing how library’s holdings are assessed and evaluated. This affects the workflow of the library staff, meaning that library management systems must evolve to meet their needs. Three cutting-edge libraries have pioneered the change by implementing a new library services platform at their libraries. Each shares their experience and how implementation is enabling their libraries to be strong community partners in research. They discuss how they have used technology to help their academic communities by streamlining their workflows and gained more efficiency with a new integrated management system capable of capturing all formats in the library collection. They talk about the ways new functionality has enabled library staff to make data-driven decisions about their collections to better meet member needs and expectations, and how it eliminates redundant tasks and provides staff relief from resource management to devote more valuable time to their researchers.
