ALA 2010: Next Generation OPACs: Making the Most of Local Holdings Data

As promised, here’s another ALA session that has come across the listservs that looks really interesting.  Here’s the information:

ALCTS Continuing Resources Section Holdings Information Forum
Date and Time: June 26 (Saturday) 4-5:30 p.m.
Location: JW Marriott Hotel — Grand BR IV

Title: Next Generation OPACs: Making the Most of Local Holdings Data

The forum presents new discovery tools designed to
make local holdings easily accessible and understandable on the next
generation OPAC platform. Learn about OCLC’s new WorldCat Local with
choices of content solutions within local library, shared catalog,
consortia, and more. Discover Primo and Primo-Central and their
mechanisms that guide users to items of interest and bring “discovery”
closer to “delivery”. Come explore Google’s OPAC’s efforts making local
holdings visible on Google Scholar’s platform. All global content is
local for someone!
