Checking Out the Cloud: How to Evaluate Cloud-based Integrated Library SystemsOklahoma Library Association Annual Conference April 4, 2013 presented by Anne Prestamo Oklahoma State University - Stillwater
Agenda • Terminology • Major Players• What’s different about cloud based systems? • Migration Preparation
What are we really talking about?• Discovery Layer – An alternative interface/search engine to a library’s OPAC, although some do search digital content as well• Web-scale Discovery Service – An alternative interface/search engine that simultaneously searches BIB records, journal articles, digital content – Major differentiator is central index, although some also use Z39.50• Library Management System (aka ILS) – Total replacement for locally installed system

What’s different than your current ILS?• No local server(s)• No up-front license or hardware costs – Annual subscription pricing• Upgrades/patches applied centrally with little or no downtime• Back-end (ACQ, CAT, CIRC) is de-coupled from public interface – possible to mix and match• Heavy emphasis on e-resource management• Central depository of shared records (print and e)
Preparing to migrate• Clean up your records!• Identify all sources of records/data regarding e-resources and local digital collections• Ask lots of questions about what can be migrated/imported and how• How will authentication be handled?• Possibilities for exchange of data between ILS and finance system• Focus on workflow change from the get-go
