Does your catalog vendor fall short on providing patrons with easy online access to your collections? First, learn how the Schaumburg Library used the open source online catalog VuFind to improve its online user experience without an ILS migration or costly discovery-layer subscription. The second case study discusses creating a catalog with open sourced ILS Koha for a 900-plus bed teaching hospital and several institutes and research branches. After tracking the publications of hospital-affiliated authors for years, the library began on Authors Day 2009 to recognize its associates’ contributions to medical literature. After the library migrated to Koha in 2013, they put local author information online using a modified version of Koha. Hear what steps were taken to change Medline records from a citation manager format to MARC, how Koha templates were changed to display additional information, lessons learned, and more. TIND provides a lightweight open source ILS, a web-based solution for managing print, electronic, and digital assets in a single, unified platform. Using an academic case study, it illustrates the focus on digital e-resources and a different approach to the traditional ILS interface design.
