Title: The Integrated Library Management System (ILMS): A Core Component in the Fusion of E-learning and E-knowledge


1
The Integrated Library Management System (ILMS)
A Core Component in the Fusion of E-learning
and E-knowledge
  • Joanna Richardson
  • Digital Repository Administrator

eAgenda Forum 2004
Information Services
2
Integration of Core Support Systems
  • ROI for learning objects library resources
  • Penetration of knowledge silos
  • Sharing / (re) combining content

3
Myths
  • If e-learning is not equal to LCMS
  • And e-knowledge is not equal to portals or
    corporate systems
  • Then ILMS is not equal to the Librarys online
    catalogue

4
The End-user As Driver
  • Students will have increased expectations for
    technology-based resources
  • Students will want all content to be
  • -- available
  • -- interrelated
  • -- easily accessible
  • Terry, Charles 2001, Content Delivery
    Applications The Net Generation, InfoToday 2001
    Conference

5
The Back End As Driver
  • Library staff need access to
  • local systems for finance, library records,
    student information, learning platforms
  • remote systems for online ordering, bibliographic
    utilities, online work tools

6
And Yet . . .
  • Most ILMS vendors can supply APIs which enable
    interfaces between their system and various
    institutional administration systems
  • But these linkages beyond the student
    information system are rare in Australia

7
And the Solution Is . . . ?
  • Service convergence ILMS LCMS
  • Portal products ILMS hybrid information
    systems
  • Enterprise MIS integration ILMS finance

8
Goal
  • Address business processes and knowledge
    management issues
  • ROI
  • Resource sharing and collaboration both
    internally and at the inter-organisational level

9
The Future Integration and Dis-integration
  • Opportunity for librarians and IT professionals
    to work with ILMS vendors to develop solutions to
    a range of knowledge management / access issues
  • ILMS may be less integrated and more modular
    various functional applications (products)
    treated as discrete interoperable systems which
    can then be integrated with individual enterprise
    systems
