Integrated Library Systems


Product Description
Product Details

Promotional Information

"I think it's a fantastic book for those selecting a library system. It has rafts of details, advice, procedures, worksheets, checklists and charts which make a wealth of information available in concise format. Did I mention the great charts? It's organized in stepwise/sequential fashion, breaking down each step into conceptual units with concepts getting broken down into baby steps. Despite the high density of information per square inch, it has a direct and readable style making it very accessible. Geared to the public library, it has ten chapters, four appendices, a glossary, bibliography and index, all for under 200 pages. If I were adopting a new automation system, I would use this book." -- Karl Dowell, Media Director, Mustang High School

"The audience for this title is either a librarian who has to select or replace an Integrated Library System (ILS) or a library science student studying IT. It provides solid instruction in guiding a librarian through this process, including systematic and detailed step-by-step instructions on the practical aspects of choosing an ILS; working with the vendor; budgeting and time-line planning; and implementation and training. An appendix contains an up-to-date directory of ILS vendors, including software-as-a-service, turnkey, and open source vendors. Also appended are samples of a strategic plan, a technology plan, and a request for proposal. A good primer for choosing an ILS." - Booklist Online
"This book tackles the whole process and cites additional resources that can be used. Recommended for librarians seeking to automate for the first time." - Library Journal
