Content Powers Technology

The effectiveness of library technology products currently depends not only on the software, but also on content components that power its functionality. Software alone can seem like an empty shell, awaiting data to unleash its capabilities. For the traditional model of automation, such as seen in integrated library systems, that data is mostly created or assembled by the library itself. In these times, products are increasingly available which tap into global pools of data that deliver to libraries and their users more powerful capabilities without the need to redundantly recreate their own isolated silos of content.
