Register for Moving Library Cooperation to Web Scale: October 22 at the Wichita Public Library

Graphic: Moving Library Cooperation to Web Scale  

October 22, 2010
10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Wichita Public Library, Wichita, KS
Free and open to all; lunch will be provided  

Libraries have been cooperating on cataloging, collection management and resource sharing services for decades. In that time, we have enjoyed the benefits of networked services—no local software or hardware, elimination of maintenance and support costs, lower overall expense and better scalability.

Now, Web scale offers libraries the chance to revitalize traditional services by sharing workflows, activities, data and standards as part of a cooperative.

To help our members better understand how Web scale is changing the face of cooperative library services, OCLC and LYRASIS presented this event. Additional in-person events will occur throughout the year, along with related webinars, virtual discussions and more. View more dates and learn more about this series.
