OPACS

Just attended Woepacs to Wowpacs.

It is good to know that everyone thinks their OPACs are bad.  Can’t wait to get back and start customizing ours now that I have access to the test server.

Roy, from OCLC, noted the differences between Integrated Library Systems (ILS) and Discovery Systems (which are essentially a public face/overlay for the ILS). Wondering if there is a better Discovery System that we might use at home. He mentioned a number of open source systems, which I’ve made notes about and will check into when I get home. 

Had lunch with a coworker from my system, which was nice.

Still not sure what I’m doing after the conference today. 

More later.

 

UPDATE:

Well, not that much more to report about today’s session. They were good, and I saw some good tools for possible use, but nothing really blew me away. The Wednesday sessions look pretty promising.
