Thank you!

Thank you for joining us and participating in our Library Technology Day, Dubai 2024

During this Library Technology day, you will have the opportunity to acquire knowledge in various areas:

  • Meet FOLIO, FOLIO ERM and Managing Open Access: FOLIO manages both print and electronic resources together in a single platform. It can be configured as a standalone Electronic Resource Management (ERM) system. FOLIO understands the importance of Open Access workflows and provides the ability to record and report all aspects of Open Access requests. These requests can be linked to transitional or transformational publisher agreements within the library. FOLIO’s Open Access application seamlessly integrates with the FOLIO Library Services Platform (LSP).
  • Meet Panorama Analytics: Panorama is a modern library analytics platform combining different library and campus data to enable insights that were not possible until now. With Panorama, libraries can streamline data sources into a single dashboard to easily view, share and evaluate institutional metrics. Panorama’s dashboards can also automate libraries gathering of data needed for reporting to national standards organizations.
  • Meet OpenAthens: OpenAthens is classified as a form of federated SAML Single Sign-On (SSO), which grants end users the ability to utilize their current institutional credentials to access EBSCO products and services. SSO is widely recognized as a recommended method for digital access, primarily due to its superior security features and the level of control it provides institutions over data sharing.
  • Meet BiblioGraph: BiblioGraph brings BIBFRAME and Linked Data to your library catalogue. Library users can now explore, use and access your library catalogue from anywhere on the web, such as Learning Management Systems, LibGuides and Google. Hear how Library of Congress’ implementation of FOLIO with BIBFRAME seeks to address challenges in the library space.
