Perceptions 2016: An International Survey of Library Automation

https://librarytechnology.org/perceptions/2016/

“This tenth edition of the International Survey of Library Automation aims to provide a candid glimpse into the effectiveness of strategic library technology systems from the perspective of the libraries which use them for their daily operations and to fulfill the expectations of their patrons. It focuses primarily on integrated library systems and library services platforms as the applications libraries use to acquire, describe, manage, and provide access to their collections.” 

 

 

“The open source OPALS ILS, implemented primarily in school libraries received enthusiastic response, with 220 libraries using OPALS completing the survey. OPALS was developed and supported by Media Flex, Inc. In the state of New York, many of the BOCES provide OPALS for the school libraries they support. This year, 148 responses for OPALS came from school libraries, 8 from consortia, and 7 from small academic libraries.”

“OPALS received top ratings in all categories by libraries serving PreK-12 Schools: Overall satisfaction (8.65), ILS functionality (8.65), print functionality (8.70), electronic resource functionality (7.65), and company loyalty (8.58).”
