Against the backdrop of 40 Florida state colleges and universities transitioning together from Aleph to Sierra/Encore-Duet in 2016-2017, the University of Central Florida is planning to improve patron and librarian experience at its 10 joint-use libraries across central Florida. Joint-use libraries reside at a state college where UCF classes are being taught. Collections are shared, and services are provided to patrons at both sites, but acquisitions, cataloging, circulation, collection management, and resource sharing are too complicated. Sierra to the rescue?! Learn how UCF and its partners plan to use Sierra to create seamless patron and staff interactions for all.
