Abstract

Information technology runs the systems which make today’s organizations work. In this chapter, the replacement of an ILS to a library services platform is discussed. The move to cloud-based systems can have both cost benefits and hidden burdens, so it is imperative a TCO exercise is done to show the significance of both. In addition, much library-specific software is required and is listed and annotated with helpful information.
