Many of OhioLINK’s 117 higher education libraries are expanding past their primary focus on print collections to encompass many more digitally enabled operations, focused increasingly on advanced initiatives to foster student success and support the research enterprise. The systems needed to enable this work require a transformation just as complete, at both the institutional and consortial levels. But most discussion about library systems is still centered on collections as traditionally defined. To spur current and potential service providers, OhioLINK has developed a vision through a process facilitated by Ithaka S+R, which was recently published. In this vision we look to a future systems environment that 1) centers on the user, not the collection; 2) manages the facilitated collection, not just institutional holdings; 3) is integrated with the rest of the institution, not siloed in the library; 4) provides modern business intelligence. This session will include a brief recap of the vision, as well as provide a forum for discussion about how this connects with the needs of other libraries and what more we can do to help the market move in desired directions.
