Future of the Library Management System
By Margaret Stone, on 14 November 2016
Some of you may have been wondering what has happened to the plans to replace the Aleph library management system with a more modern, innovative system. We’re continuing to plan for this, but our funding is linked to ISD budget rounds. We were unsuccessful in 2016/17, against a strong field of larger Professional Services projects, but will bid again in 2017/18. We will find out the result in the summer term of 2017, with a new system planned to be in place by summer 2018 if funding is awarded. We aim to involve colleagues from across Library Services in the procurement process but in the meantime, as ever, do send any queries or suggestions about the LMS to the Digital Libraries Team (digital-library-support at ucl.ac.uk).
