OBS User Groups

OBS-SIS Program: User Groups on RDA
Tuesday, July 24, 2012
10:15-11:45 AM
HCC-Room 207

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.
