Introducing Rebus:list, VuFind and WordPress for libraries – a seminar

This seminar will introduce and showcase several further products which are now being supported and promoted by PTFS Europe.
These include:
Rebus:list – the new reading list management system recently released by PTFS Europe. Based on a comprehensive review of the current systems available, Rebus:list offers a significant advance in the effective management of the entire workflow involved in the delivery and presentation of reading lists.
VuFind – a resource discovery capability that can be used to provide a single point of access to a wide range of information sources. The resources that can be harvested include your library catalogue, digital archives, institutional repositories and a wide range of other resources. Records are harvested from the various resources needed and then indexed using the SOLR search engine. Users can then search these multiple resources with a single search.
WordPress for libraries – a content management system that can be integrated with library management and discovery systems to provide the library’s entire web presence.
The agenda will include:

  • An overview and demonstration of Rebus:list
  • User presentations on their experiences with Rebus:list
  • An outline of the VuFind discovery portal and its implementation
  • A look at how WordPress can be used in the library context

CILIP's LMS Showcase coming to Scotland

This year’s regional LMS Suppliers Showcase will be held on Thursday 20 September at The King James Hotel in Edinburgh.
Leading LMS suppliers will be there for you to meet in an informal and relaxed, ‘non-sales’ environment, ready to demonstrate their systems, listen to your requirements and find solutions to your needs.
 
CILIP Events have been organising Library Management Systems Suppliers Showcases since 2004. These Showcases give library and information professionals the chance to meet with specialised suppliers.
 
In these times of severe cuts within all sectors, now is the time to look at how organisations can work smarter. By visiting the CILIP LMS Suppliers Showcase you will have the chance to talk to the experts on how you can get the most out of your library management system.
 
The Showcase is free for visitors to attend, and refreshments are supplied all day 09.00 – 16.00 in addition to a sandwich lunch from 12.00 – 14.00. Visitors can drop in throughout the day and discuss their needs with a number of different vendors in one place. To ensure you place at the event please register your place today.
