Int’l Internet Librarian

October 18 - 20, 2022

Pre-Conference Workshops

Monday, October 17 Monterey Marriott | Monterey CA

Existing library discovery platforms are complex beasts and generally long in the tooth. Users have been exposed to visually stunning user interfaces from Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Roku, etc. Additionally, existing platforms provide a collection of non-integrated services—often by vendor (search events separately, search the catalogue separately, search econtent separately, etc.). And what about evolving recommendation engines for our patrons? TLC imagined big changes and evolution in 2018 when preparing its ILS tender. It approached Apple, Google, and Microsoft among other big tech to try and engage them in our vision for our next-generation digital front door. Four years on and with the help of our chosen ILS vendor, SOLUS, as the developer of the new library services platform and the passion of our member libraries, the new platform launched! Hear an update on the project, what was learned, how it is impacting member libraries and patrons, and what’s next.
