Mar'15: Evolving Workflows, Systems and Spaces to Better Serve Users (Choice/ACRL)

Thursday March 12 / 11am-12pm Pacific


It's time to implement an integrated library services platform -- one that provides efficient workflows, streamlines delivery to the researcher and improves the patron experience. Learn more in this co-sponsored webinar with ProQuest®. Join us to hear how Jeff Daniels, Electronic Resources Manager at Grand Valley State University Libraries, is helping the library meet the expectations of modern patrons with innovative practices such as demand-driven acquisition (DDA) and more interactive learning spaces within its "Information Commons". Both the library's systems and physical spaces are designed with end-users in mind, embodying the libraries of the future concept.
Also, listen as Michelle D'Couto, Product Manager Lead for Intota, discusses how libraries are implementing Intota to streamline workflows, staff procedures and ultimately improve the research process. Last, Kathryn Harnish, Director of Product Management for Intota, will explain why she believes traditional, process-oriented systems fall short in a transformative moment for libraries and that a new conceptual model is required for next-generation platforms to reach their true potential.
