Computers in Libraries 2015 is celebrating 30 years of its longstanding tradition – looking at emerging technologies. The conference, held in Washington D.C. April 27–29, is centered on offering programs that participants can take what they learn and apply it directly for the success of their communities. This year, ProQuest is hosting two panels at the conference in which attendees can learn more about our next-generation library services platform and how it’s supporting libraries to be strong community partners.

The most valuable resource in the library is the library staff, and it’s time that library management systems are utilized to redeploy that resource in our libraries – a system that allows libraries to focus on their patrons and efficiently manage their rich library collections in order to exceed researcher expectations. During the session, Library Platforms: Streamlining Systems & Workflow, Marist College will share how implementing IntotaTM, a modern library services platform, helped transform their library and inform their collection decisions.

Ball State University will also discuss how they utilized Intota to showcase the value of their library during changing management within the library staff. ProQuest will present research into the divergence between the services that end users consume and how library staff actually spend their time. Join us on Monday, April 27 and gain insight into the challenges that academic libraries are facing as they deal with predominantly digital collections.

Hear from:
Kathryn Silberger, Senior Librarian Digital Content Services, Marist College
James Hammons, Head of Library Technologies, Ball State University
Michelle D'Couto, Lead Product Manager, ProQuest

Digital resources are dominating library collections and changing how library’s holdings are assessed and evaluated. If this is affecting the workflow of your library staff and you’re searching for an evolved library management system that meets the needs of modern libraries, don’t miss this session, Library Tech = More Community Time, on Wednesday, April 29.

Three cutting-edge libraries have pioneered the change by adopting a new library services platform at their libraries. Each will share their experience and how implementation is enabling their libraries to be strong community partners in research. They will discuss how they have used technology to help their academic communities by streamlining their workflows, and gained more efficiency with a new integrated management system capable of capturing all formats in the library collection.

Key findings that address common questions in the industry will reveal the ways new functionality has enabled their library staff to make data-driven decisions about their collections and better meet their patrons' needs and expectations. Be sure to check out this session to learn how you can eliminate redundant tasks, and provide staff relief from resource management to devote more valuable time to your researchers.
