Join us in thinking outside the out-of-the-box, proprietary ILS or ERM as the members of this panel discuss the latest developments in open source library applications. Although much attention has been paid to the promise of open source and new technologies for the OPAC, this panel will shed light on how next-generation technology, open source projects, and the widespread sharing of home-grown solutions can help change the game in acquisitions and e-resource management.

MODS and MADS: Current Implementations and Future Directions
10:30 - Noon WCC-143B/C. Sponsored by LITA.
Over the last few years, the use of MODS has increased rapidly. In 2008 the MODS Editorial Committee was established to work with the community to maintain the MODS and MADS standards and to update these so that they work in increasingly complex and linked metadata environments. This program will include examples of current implementations of MODS/MADS, future directions (including how a 4.0 version might work better at the network level), and its relation to other metadata standards. This program is intended to elicit feedback and discussion with the community.

Strategic Future of Print Collections in Research Libraries
10:30 – Noon Location: TBA
Sponsored by PARS. Cosponsored by ACRL RBMS.
Use of print library collections is shifting from physical circulation to digital reformatting and screen delivery. Does this shift suggest a continuing role for physical collections or does their screen delivery inherently suggest print disposal? Recent technologies of print-on-demand will be evaluated from a preservation perspective, interdependence of similar physical and digital collections discussed, and preservation service reassignment and preservation advocacy for the continuing role of print in the context of its digital delivery will be explored.
