  • The Future of OPACs, ILSs & ERMs Emporia State University SLIM, LI815 Lori Wamsley OPACs by Jessica Gagnon ILSs by Melody Bentfield ERMs by Daphne Tseng
  • OPACS – Future Needs  User Friendly  Google  User Needs and Expectations
  • Searchability  Keyword  Boolean
  • Search Results  Relevance  Display  Book covers  Item Statuses  Carry over terms
  • More Search Results  Scroll Back  Colors – previously clicked  Highlight keywords  Call number browse feature
  • Self-Service  Intuitive  Web 2.0  Ease of use – no training!
  • Current ILSs Pros  Open-Source  Proprietary  ”Free” as in ”free”  Ease of use beer and ”free”  Technological support speech  Vendor endorsement  Growing vendor  Widely known support and recognition  Bundled with other programs  Modifiable to the needs of the library
  • Current ILSs Cons  Proprietary  Open-Source  Vendor may choose  Lack of technical to discontinue support or know-how  Modifiable only to a for most libraries certain point  Not as widely known  Costly  Not necessarily able  Vendors may choose to work with other to dictate uses and platorms licenses 
  • ILS Emerging Trends
  • Recent ILS Development  WorldCat's new ILS  WorldCat Local  Eliminates many steps  Convenient  Monopoly?  What kind of control will OCLC gain with this new development?
  • On the other hand...  A push for Open-Source still exists  Eliminates the middle-man and gives library control  Will systems like Koha develop quickly enough to provide a healthy balance of open vs. closed systems?
  • Is there a future for the ILS?  As budgets decrease over time, what will be the best long-term investment?  Will a ”web-scale” (Breeding, 2009) program like WorldCat Local replace our current idea of an ILS?  Will Open-Source programs attempt to meet this growing demand to be more Google-like?
  • Why does library need ERMs?  multiple manifestations of the same resource,  maintenance of volatile URLs,  tracking and maintaining electronic holdings,  and making resources accessible from within the library as well as remotely.
  • Issues: For the ERM system  Consortium support and functionality  Usage Data  Resource Succession  Data standards
  • Issues: For library world  user behavior and expectations  3% information seekers start with library 86% start with Google or other search engines  Find information anyplace anytime when he/she want  Disintegration of ILS  Pricing  Intellectual property  perpetual access and archiving
  • Let’s think about ERMs!  Can integrated library management systems “sufficiently meet the complex management needs of the online resources environment?” (From:Beth Forrest Warner)  Is user-friendliness best achieved by a simple, Google-like interface that patrons say they want? Or is it user-centered to educate users-teaching them the best way to get the best results, even though they do not like having to learn something complicated?
