Next-generation Library Services Platforms offer an appealing array of acquisitions functionality, from new APIs to integrated e-resource workflows and better reporting. But first comes the system migration, and the devil is in the detail(s). In this program, librarians from three institutions will discuss their firsthand experiences with migrations, emphasizing the needs and expectations of acquisitions departments. Topics covered will include early planning, database cleanup, project management, and challenges for consortia.
