Bucknell was an early adopter of the OCLC WorldShare Management Services solution in the summer of 2011. In this session, we'll overview this project, focus on the new realities cloud-based services present, and engage in a lively dialogue on the following topics: How practical is the cloud for libraries? How does this fit with the vision of open-source library systems? Will cloud-based library systems become as common as Google e-mail systems on college campuses? Will libraries embrace the idea that their core system is more commodity than cottage industry? And if so, what does that mean for the future?
