ILS Preparation: Why Wait?

The new ILS will come with extensive training. However, there are things we can begin doing now to prepare ourselves for this transition.

Take a look at this post on the ILS blog from February 8.

Pay special attention to the Software section. Words like "Unicorn", "Workflows", and "Enterprise Portal System or EPS" will replace words we currently use such as "Circle", "IG", "Web Catalog".

This post has links to descriptions of these components which then lead to other pdf documents that go into further detail.

So, as hard as it may seem, start taking a few spare moments here and there to begin reading about your new ILS. Much of it may not make sense, but keep reading.

While, yes, the training for the new ILS will be extensive, preparing ourselves now is vital to a successful transition.
