The Benefits of Sharing: a JISC LMS Pathfinder Project
On Friday 5th October, more than thirty library staff from across Scotland met together to discuss Library Management Systems. Facilitated by Stephanie Taylor and Sheila Cannell, this one-day event asked the question, “Would a shared library management system improve services in Scotland?”
- What do we need from an LMS?
- What are the benefits and drawbacks to sharing?
- Would a shared LMS work for Scotland?
The write-up of the event has now been published: http://libraryblogs.is.ed.ac.uk/benefitsofsharing/the-lms-day/
These discussions in Scotland are very relevant to WHELF …. our own shared LMS project is well underway and will report in the spring: http://blogs.cf.ac.uk/sharedlms/
