Technology

The BLC Technology Community of Interest serves as a forum for members to share information, collaborate, communicate with vendors, and learn from each other about issues related to library technologies. The COI is open to systems librarians, developers, and other technologists in BLC member libraries, and meets at least twice annually including a meeting at the BLC Networking Day. The Technology COI may include subgroups for specific projects and/or technologies.

Specific areas of focus for the COI are:

  • Serve as a forum for information sharing around technology trends and new initiatives
  • Collaboratively communicate with vendors to improve and develop products that meet shared needs of BLC libraries
  • Organize workshops or other training opportunities for commonly used Library technologies
  • Collaboratively develop innovative open source Library applications
  • Engage in collaborative user testing for technology platforms in use across member libraries,
