How Is That Going to Work?: Rethinking Acquisitions in a Next-Generation ILS

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What do acquisitions policies and workflows look like in next-generation systems? How can institutions leverage automated processes to improve efficiency, and what happens when you also belong to a consortium that is looking to increase collaboration? The Orbis Cascade Alliance is a consortium of 37 public and private academic institutions in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. In January 2012, the Alliance began a 2-year process of migrating all 37 institutions to a shared ILS. Migrating in 4 cohorts every 6 months, the first cohort of 6 institutions went live with Ex Libris’s Alma and Primo in July 2013. Representatives from 3 of the 6 pioneering libraries will discuss topics such as preparing for migration to a new system, changes in workflow, challenges and opportunities for a new system, and what may be coming down the pike for cooperative collection development in the Alliance. Questions encouraged from the audience, especially from attendees who may be pondering or about to embark upon their own migrations.
