New Issue Alert: Panlibus Magazine (Issue 22) Looks at Shared Services

From a Panlibu Blog Post Overview by Mark Travis:

In this issue we look at shared services in detail and consider what the path to a successful library shared service will look like (p. 4-5). The groundbreaking tri-borough plan between three London councils (Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and Westminster City Council) is still in the early stages, but we see how this will pan out from the library perspective (p. 6-7). Another innovative project underway is the unique library shared service with Worcestershire Council and the University of Worcester (p. 24-25).

Capita has recently launched its LMS as a Service, Chorus: a cloud based solution that will manage all of the services that libraries currently benefit from. Andy Latham, Head of Development at Capita, outlines how this will work and the benefits it will bring to libraries. As well as this, we have articles from Capita’s Additions Partners Nielsen and Lorensbergs, case studies and product updates to keep you up-to-date with the latest from Capita’s library division.
