Libraries in the US collectively invest almost half a billion dollars annually in the platforms that manage and provide access to their collections and services. Marshall Breeding, author of the annual Library Systems Report published in American Libraries, will assemble and moderate a panel of executives representing organizations that produce software or services for libraries. Breeding will give a brief introduction and will then lead a lively discussion to probe at the technology and business trends currently in play, including industry consolidation, differing approaches to opening software to library programmers, and the shift toward cloud-based technologies.
