  • I’m not going to make a case for any one service, although I am going to mention one company that I think is doing the best job at what I’m going to describe. \n

  • from wikipedia\n
  • An operating system is a platform...it allows for the development of applications that run on top of it, and that rely on the OS to perform some of the heavy lifting by communicating directly with the hardware. \n
  • What is this? This is maybe what you think of when you think of Amazon, but in 2002 Jeff Bezos changed the direction of the company forever with his Mandate.\n
  • From around 2002 \nEnd of Part 3: The only communication allowed is via service interface calls over the network.\n

  • that’s not what Amazon is...\n
  • The right platform extends your capabilities. It keeps you from having to worry about low-level infrastructure, and frees you to develop services that directly impact your patrons. \n
  • At their best, a well-built platform can seem like it makes magic possible. The allow for more development at a lower person-cost for libraries...and in the best of all worlds, they can actually let patrons build their own interfaces as well. Think about the number of different Twitter clients that are available...now imagine if your catalog had that kind of freedom. How could that help your patrons? \n
  • Doesn’t this look a lot like...\n
  • ....this?\n

  • Eventually you’ll be able to share your data freely across the web...\n
  • ...and although we’re different libraries, we could have a common data set that could allow our patrons a great deal more power in accessing the info they need. Worldcat is a tiny, tiny example of the sorts of things that could be possible. \n
  • A connection with our data, and we can let people make connections that we don’t see.\n
  • We can build and share our resources because we’ll be writing on a common platform.\n
  • We can build more together than we can apart. \n
