Library Services Platform
HIGHER EDUCATION LIBRARY TECHNOLOGY (HELibTech) WIKI
The aim of HELibTech is to provide a starting point for anyone interested in library technology in Higher Education. The focus is UK but most of the issues will be relevant elsewhere
HELibTech originated in a major sector project: The
JISC & SCONUL Library Management Systems Study
:An Evaluation and horizon scan of the current library management systems and related systems landscape for UK higher education. March 2008.
HELibTech has been enabled the work of that project to be kept up to date and expanded.The site is hosted by Wikispaces and uses their software.
Ken Chad Consulting
set up the site and has taken on the role of 'WikiMaster' to encourage contributions, help contributors and protect the site from any malicious activity.
However Ken Chad Consulting is not responsible for the content.
