APTrust Member Meeting 2016

This week I am in DC for the APTrust Member Meeting. We are being hosted by the Georgetown University Libraries in Lauinger Library. A great view of the potamac from our window. Lots of discussion and lots of talk about scaling services over time and possible new partnerships. Great discussions.

ALA Annual Conference 2016

Today I am at the ALA Annual Conference in Orlando. I am at a library services platform panel hosted by @mbreeding. At this panel most of the major library services platform vendors discussed the state of the market. There was actually a pretty good analysis of the consolidation happening in the market by Jim Tallman at III. Most talked a good game about system and service interoperability but I am intrigued by the new open player Folio_LSP.

Sebastien Hammer below discussed the launch of Folio_LSP.
