Understanding Interoperability with an Eye on Discovery

Libraries, like any enterprise, deploy a large number of software applications from a variety of vendors. With an ever-growing array of software applications – from next-gen ILS to discovery – libraries can choose what works best. And they can do this thanks to a key technological and business concept that has defined the software industry and has enabled choice: “interoperability”.

So what is meant with interoperability? And, more specifically, which applications should in fact be interoperable and why? What technical standards enable interoperability? When applications work together, the end-user stands to benefit. Panelists will look at the end-user experience and benefits when applications such as the ILS, the learning management system, and library engagements solutions work seamlessly with discovery.
