Modernizing for better service delivery

Poster developed by: Kathryn Tippell-Smith; Ontario Medical Association

With ever-increasing strides in technological development and the changing needs and expectations of library users, the Ontario Medical Association’s Research Group opted to migrate from our antiquated integrated library system to a modern ‘social libraries’ system, that has revolutionized how we provide services to users. This poster details the trials, tribulations and successes of developing our “Research Portal” – including planning and preparing data, working with the vendor during initial customization,  the ‘migration’ itself (communicating with our local information technology department), and preparing and evaluating new delivery methods for our services.
