My name is Alison Ross. I'm the cataloging librarian for the Eastern Shores Library System and manage both the cataloging and interlibrary loan departments. Our library system is currently in the process of moving to a new ILS, so what's available and what may be coming in the realm of the Next Generation OPAC and ILS have been very much on our minds. As we have never been completely happy with the current Horizon OPAC available for our patrons, and as we begin planning for the setup of the ILS and OPAC of our next system, I am very interested in learning more about what's available now and what people are doing with it as well as what may be coming down the line and how it may impact our service.
