Stef Morrill, WiLS, for COLAND January 9, 2015

In late 2013, the public library systems in Wisconsin were surveyed about the integrated library system (ILS) consortia that are affiliated with them. This report is a summary of the results of that survey.

The intention of the survey and, therefore, the report, is to show a snapshot of the ILS landscape in Wisconsin. The goal of this study was not to draw conclusions about specific directions for service, but to provide comparable data to inform further conversations and planning around
ILS services.

Summary of the “ILS Consortia in Wisconsin” Report

  1. 1. Summary of the “ILS Consortia in Wisconsin” report COLAND January 9, 2015
  2. 2. What is an ILS? http://www.jbi.hio.no/bibin/KOHA/KOHA_intro.html
  3. 3. What is a shared ILS in Wisconsin? Delivery/ Fulfillment Policies/ Procedures Agreements Governance Staffing Reports/ Statistics Promotion Fiscal agency/ budget Technology infrastructure Supplies/ Equipment Cataloging Support/ Communication Training
  4. 4. About the study...
  5. 5. Most of the state has the same vendor...
  6. 6. ….but not the same modules
  7. 7. Most of the $$ do not pay for platform
  8. 8. Every consortium is unique Delivery/ Fulfillment Policies/ Procedures Agreements Governance Staffing Reports/ Statistics Promotion Fiscal agency/ budget Technology infrastructure Supplies/ Equipment Cataloging Support/ Communication Training
  9. 9. There is significant variation in services -Support -Batch processing/bib record changes -Enhancements/upgrades to platform -Fiscal agency -Email lists for communication -Statistics for annual report/custom reports -In-person training -ILS -related technology services
  10. 10. There is significant variation in funding models.
  11. 11. Libraries have a say
  12. 12. In summary…. Many of the consortia use the same platform. While the platform is a significant investment, a small percentage of the total shared ILS project budgets are spent on platform. Most of the budget goes to the surrounding services and support provided by the consortia. Each consortia is unique: there is great variation in services, governance, budget models, and most other components of what makes a shared ILS in Wisconsin. Libraries are paying for the majority of the shared ILS projects and have a significant say in what services are provided and how.
  13. 13. Likelihood and impact of potential benefits
  14. 14. Perception of challenges Change in cost formula: 100% Ability of system staff to provide ...service: 97% Change in governance models: 97% Loss of ability to participate in governance:97% Changes in delivery service: 94% Impact on staff at local library: 94% Increased costs: 94% Loss of autonomy: 94%
  15. 15. Where to go from here... Capitalize on commonalities and work to create more of them
  16. 16. Thanks! Stef Morrill smorrill@wils.org 608-216-8319 Full report: http://pld.dpi.wi.gov/sites/default/files/imce/pld/p df/WiLS_ILS_study_final.pdf
