London Library Change Program, Phase 3 Bulletin

Read it here! (warning: PDF)

London libraries are looking at centralised request services in back offices, an unified approach to "stock management and procurement" (the word, stock, sticks in my craw!), and a single system for renewals and requests, in (possibly) 15 out of 33 boroughs.

They cite TPL as an example of a large, centralised library system. I could be wounded that they didn't mention us, but that's OK. We're only the largest bilingual English-French library system in North America.... Maybe they're still mad at me for making fun of Oxford's circ desk.
