OBS-SIS Program: User Groups on RDA
Tuesday, July 24, 2012
The OBS-SIS Program: User Groups on RDA title in the AALL 2012 Conference
Schedule is a bit misleading. There was some confusion in the planning process
and the previously separate OBS user group meetings (Aleph, Inmagic, SirsiDynix,
Softlink, and Voyager) were all rolled into this one program for Boston.
It was decided to turn this into an Ex Libris Update Program, since the most
user group attendees have historically been present at the Aleph and Voyager
sessions, and since these two systems share the same parent company (Ex
Libris). Amanda Schmidt (Ex Libris) will use approximately half the 90-minute
slot to deliver a presentation focused on Alma (Ex Libris' next-generation
library management service), including its accommodation of RDA, as well as on
status reports of the current Aleph and Voyager products.
This will be an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in seeing how Alma
and next generation systems in general are developing.
The remainder of the program time will be used for the various user group
members in attendance to split off into their appropriate groups and discuss
any specific system issues of interest.
