Seems Seamless: Joining Library Borrowing Systems with Custom Programming

Tuesday, March 11 | 5:15PM–6:05PM | Room 553 A/B
Session Type: Professional Development
Brown University Library's easyBorrow service is an example of local programming that stitches together multiple vendors' services, providing an apparently seamless interface for borrowing a book from any of five systems. Using teamwork, service-oriented architecture, and a determination to make it easy, easyBorrow's modular implementation allows for quick adjustments as situations (and services) change.
