C205 - Software Giant Best Practices for 21st-Century Digital Libraries

4:15 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Sonya True, Professor/Digital Initiatives Library Director, Vanguard University
Richard P. Hulser, President, Richard P. Hulser Consulting

Old dinosaurs can teach new tricks! As libraries are rapidly moving into a digital information commons convergence, the practices and workflows that normally accompany the software and technology models and product delivery of software giants such as IBM, Microsoft and Apple, are being “lost in translation.” Never before has the need to transfer the knowledge of these processes over to libraries and information centers (as well as library software companies) been greater as these places are now becoming deliverers, curators, and developers of digital content and apps. Our speakers, formerly of Microsoft and IBM and now library professionals, convey the intrinsic strategies and secrets of process, practices, and workflow that can be utilized in small or large library centers. They relate how and why they shifted from the software world to the library world, share some insider stories, and emphasize the importance of transferring knowledge to the next generation of library digital professionals before it is “lost.”
