Dopo ben 36 mesi di lavoro e 4 diverse fasi di gara OCLC ha vinto l’assegnazione da parte del JISC dell’incarico per la creazione del NBK (National Bibliographic Knowledgebase)

“The NBK will be a genuine knowledgebase combining information from various sources to tackle the collection management challenges facing UK academic institutions. We are working closely with RLUK, SCONUL, The British Library, individual representatives from academic libraries, publishers, licensing organisations and service providers to try and really think through how to realise transformational change.”

Andrew Pace discusses the functional gap that still exists for library operations as they relate to electronic resource management and integrated library systems. Pace
also provides strategies for closing the content providers’ gap in order to fulfil the needs of the end user. Participants in the library information service framework (libraries,
content suppliers, and vendors) need to examine their practices and push through these gaps to evolve solutions for effective electronic resource management and fulfilment.

Library and Archives Canada avvia la sostituzione di AMICUS


Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is beginning the process of negotiating with the Online Computer Library Centre (OCLC) to develop a cutting edge service to manage acquisitions, cataloguing, access, circulation and resource sharing to replace AMICUS, including the National Union Catalogue (NUC).
