Kyle Banerjee, Senior Implementation Consultant at EBSCO FOLIO Services and author of The Data Wrangler’s Handbook, will present “Getting Ready for the Big Move.” Libraries move to new systems to deliver better services to users. But what does that mean for purposes of preparing to migrate? Learn what you need to think about and how to prepare your data to achieve the best results possible.

Theda Schwing, Associate Director of Discovery and Delivery at OhioLINK will deliver a presentation titled, “A Marathon, Not a Sprint: The OhioLINK RFP Process.” OhioLINK is currently in the middle of a Request for Proposal (RFP) process to select an Integrated Library System (ILS) for its member libraries. This presentation will discuss the background, timeline, and complexities involved in considering a change of ILS on the consortial scale.

He'll share insights learned over the years and you'll hear about a time he was cussed at over a data migration issue!
