The IHLS LLSAP4 Working Group has arranged in-person demonstration schedules with the two top automation vendor finalists. We have scheduled the 2 in-person two-day demonstrations for these dates:
- Polaris - November 7 & 8, 9 am-5 pm, Keller Convention Center, Effingham
- SirsiDynix Symphony - November 15 & 16, 9 am -5 pm, Keller Convention Center, Effingham
We invite any IHLS LLSAP member library staff person to attend these two demonstrations. Registration is available via L2. We will also offer web-based recordings of the demonstrations so those who cannot attend the in-person sessions can view the presentations and evaluate the products as well. Critical to the success of the evaluation is the need for membership input from everyone who attends either the in-person sessions or views the recordings.
We also need volunteers to serve on committes that will help with asking appropriate, detailed questions on particular modules and do more in-depth evaluations of those modules. It is a requirement of committee members to be able to attend both two-day in-person demonstrations (November 7, 8, 15, and 16). We realize this is time-consuming but if you are able to commit to this, please consider volunteering to serve on one of the following committees:
- Circulation/ILL/Course Reserves
- Cataloging & Authority Control
- OPAC (Online Catalog)
