Latest reading on OPACs and on the ILS industry

Initial findings of a survey on OPACs by Dave Pattern are posted to his blog “Self-plagiarism is style”. Worth noting is how unhappy Canadians are with their OPACs in comparison to other jurisdictions, and how unhappy academic librarians are with their OPAC in comparison to other librarians.
Also, Marshall Breeding takes a look at the changes in the ILS industry in his article in April’s issue of the Library Journal, titled An Industry Redefined. He notes that “though the ILS continues to represent the largest portion of revenue, products that deal with electronic content and deliver better web-based services to users are the focus of the current blitz of research and development and will increasingly define industry leaders.”
