WHAT DOES THE NEXT GENERATION SYSTEM LOOK LIKE? AALL Local Systems Roundtable Marshall Breeding Independent Consult, Author, Founder and Publisher, Library Technology Guides http://www.librarytechnology.org/ http://twitter.com/mbreeding July 23, 2012 American Association of Law Libraries 2012 Discussion Topic A discussion of the development of the next generation library systems. What are the trends of the new library systems being developed by Ex Libris, III, Serials Solutions and others. What is the current stage of development? When can we expect these systems to be deployed? What is the impact of these systems living in the cloud? How will the new systems change library staff workflows? Is open source another option to be considered? Library Journal Automation Marketplace
Published annually in April 1 issue Based on data provided by each vendor Focused primarily on North America Context of global library automation market LJ Automation Marketplace Annual Industry report published in Library Journal: 2012: Agents of Change 2011: New Frontier: battle intensifies to win hearts, minds and tech dollars 2010: New Models, Core Systems 2009: Investing in the Future 2008: Opportunity out of turmoil 2007: An industry redefined 2006: Reshuffling the deck 2005: Gradual evolution 2004: Migration down, innovation up 2003: The competition heats up 2002: Capturing the migrating customer Agents of Change
As development efforts near completion on a new slate of automation products, vendors are beginning to pull out all the stops to monetize them. A new round of competition is heating up to place these new products in libraries, replacing their own legacy products and aiming to displace those of other companies.

Thomas S. Kuhn The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (1962) Properly used to describe the major transitions such as that from the Ptolemaic view to that of Copernicus Used less properly to designate less grand shifts in science, culture, or technology Transition to Web-scale Technologies Web-scale: a characterization or marketing tag that denotes a comprehensive, highlyscalable, globally shared model
Web-scale: One of the key characteristics of emerging library management and discovery services Displaces applications or data models targeting individual libraries in isolation Discovery: index-based search Management: Library Services Platforms New-generation Library Management Cloud Computing Major trend in Information Technology Term in the cloud has devolved into marketing hype, but cloud computing in the form of multitenant software as a service offers libraries opportunities to break out of individual silos of automation and engage in widely shared cooperative systems Opportunities for libraries to leverage their combined efforts into large-scale systems with more end-user impact and organizational efficiencies Fundamental technology shift
Mainframe computing Client/Server Cloud Computing http://www.flickr.com/photos/carrick/619 52845/ p://soacloudcomputing.blogspot.com/2008/10/cloud-computing.html ttp://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-10-2001/jw-1019-jxta.html Gartner Hype Cycle 2009 Gartner Hype Cycle 2010 Gartner Hype Cycle 2011 Local Computing Traditional model Locally owned and managed Shifting from departmental to enterprise
Departmental servers co-located in central IT data centers Increasingly virtualized Library Automation in the Cloud Almost all library automation vendors offer some form of cloud-based services Server management moves from library to Vendor Subscription-based business model Comprehensive annual subscription payment Offsets local server purchase and maintenance Offsets some local technology support Software as a Service Multi Tennant SaaS is the modern approach
Software functionality delivered entirely through Web interfaces One copy of the code base serves multiple sites No workstation clients Upgrades and fixes deployed universally Usually in small increments Data as a service
SaaS provides opportunity for highly shared data models WorldCat: one globally shared copy that serves all libraries Primo Central: central index of articles maintained by Ex Libris shared by all libraries implementing Primo / Primo Central KnowledgeWorks database of e-journal holdings shared among all customers of Serials Solutions products General opportunity to move away from library-bylibrary metadata management to globally shared workflows Leveraging the Cloud Moving legacy systems to hosted services provides some savings to individual institutions but does not result in dramatic transformation Globally shared data and metadata models have the potential to achieve new levels of operational efficiencies and more powerful discovery and automation scenarios that improve the position of libraries overall. Is the status quo
sustainable? ILS for management of (mostly) print Duplicative financial systems between library and campus Electronic Resource Management (non-integrated with ILS) OpenURL Link Resolver w/ knowledge base for access to full-text electronic articles Digital Collections Management platforms (CONTENTdm, DigiTool, etc.) Institutional Repositories (DSpace, Fedora, etc.) Discovery-layer services for broader access to library collections No effective integration services / interoperability among disconnected systems, non-aligned metadata schemes Integrated (for print) Library System Public Interfaces: Staff Interfaces:

Libraries need a new model of library automation Not an Integrated Library System or Library Management System The ILS/LMS was designed to help libraries manage print collections Generally did not evolve to manage electronic collections Other library automation products evolved: Electronic Resource Management Systems OpenURL Link Resolvers Digital Library Management Systems -- Institutional Repositories Library Services Platform Library-specific software. Designed to help libraries automate their internal operations, manage collections,
fulfillment requests, and deliver services Services Service oriented architecture Exposes Web services and other APIs Facilitates the services libraries offer to their users Platform General infrastructure for library automation Consistent with the concept of Platform as a Service Library programmers address the APIs of the platform to extend functionality, create connections with other systems, dynamically interact with data Library Services Platform Characteristics Highly Shared data models
