One of the best parts of my job is the opportunity to talk to librarians, field their questions, and learn what their perspective is about the current state of resource management in libraries. In recent months I’ve heard much of the same thing that we heard years ago from librarians: we have workflow inefficiencies, we need centralized data, we need interoperability between systems, we need help, and it’s time to change what we are doing today.

Each opportunity to talk with someone has reinforced the notion that each library has different management needs, is at a different stage of evaluating management services, and is embracing change at some level. The single, consistent element across each conversation is that libraries recognize the need to start somewhere, start soon, and prepare for future management services that are more mature and robust.

If you are in a position where you need to learn more introductory information about the management solutions of today while preparing for the future, I encourage to review the recent webinars I hosted recently:

ERM 101: Improving Efficiencies and ROI in your Library

Using 360 Counter to Assess Your Collection: Usage Statistics Aggregation and Reporting Made Easy

We’d be happy to talk with you if you require more detailed information on how each can address your needs. Feel free to connect with us.
