We always find it interesting to read, view, and listen to how library technology news, in this case the launch of the WorldShare platform from OCLC by the Texas A&M International (TAMIU) University Library, is reported by the mainstream press.
The video report (embedded below) runs about two minutes and was broadcast Monday by KGNS-TV in Laredo, Texas.
From a Text Summary:
The “cloud” it’s a term used when computers share resources. The Killam library at TAMIU is transitioning to a new cloud system. Library director, Doug Ferrier says it will give users a better experience.
“You sit down at a computer log on and then you search by author, title subject or keyword and it will show all the material that’s available. It’s a very comprehensive system.”
