BoK Domains: Information Management

BoK Information Management Icon

With the rising cost of ILS system maintenance, more and more libraries are moving toward or considering moving toward a new ILS, one that is less expensive with (or integrating better with) an open source/customizable discovery system. However, there are lots of technical issues one needs to know before jumping into the pool. This program will present the pros and cons of technical issues during and after the data migration and system transition, so that other libraries considering a move may be better prepared for all the challenges and surprises.

This program is sponsored by the TS-SIS.
