Target Audience: Public and technical services librarians
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will identify at least three advantages and disadvantages of Open Source Integrated Library Systems (OS ILS) and assess the resources needed and cost benefits of developing a home-grown ILS model.
2. Participants will analyze the ability to interoperate with other systems, such as Electronic Resource Management (ERM), OpenURLs, and Federated Search, to leverage overall library service.

While the majority of libraries rely on proprietary systems, the OS ILS is a potentially viable approach for some technologically savvy libraries. Find out how OS ILS can reengineer your overall library service, as well as the challenges of its implementation. This program will cover what makes Open Source Software different from proprietary software, how it organizes it elements, what tools it uses, and how it operates. Presenters will also discuss how a service-oriented architecture can be incorporated into OS ILS and how a customized system can be interoperable with various systems to avoid repetitive data management. In addition, this session will survey the foreseeable implementation dilemma on in-house knowledge bases and resources for system development, as well as sustainable system maintenance/update.
