Successful Resource Sharing and Interlibrary Loan services have always depended on building relationships between libraries and performing highly-technical and labor-intensive tasks. Over the past few decades, technology has helped improve the efficiency and effectiveness of these services for both staff and patrons. As exciting as these developments have been, and as far as we have come since the days of carbon copy paper forms and single-terminal workstations, the Resource Sharing community and our patrons continue to demand more. Join us for a panel of vendors who will cover some of the latest products on the market, as well as those on the horizon, and answer questions about functionality, development timelines, and more.
1. After this session, participants will be able to identify emerging resource sharing systems and understand their basic functionality.
2. Participants will learn how to stay abreast of changes to resource sharing.
3. Upon completion, participants will know how to contact vendors and library experts for more information about emerging resource sharing products.
