Onderzoek naar innovatief potentieel van PBS
01/02/2008 - 30/06/2008
Has been finalized

The study started from the identification of the relatively low level of the development of innovative services on the provincial library cataloguing systems (PBS) in Flanders. The provinces are mainly occupied by connecting new libraries on the PBS. Nevertheless the library sector is waiting for these innovations which could be instruments to find new users and strengthen the relation with existing users. The research project did focus on these potential innovations, keeping in mind new technologies such as web 2.0 and web 3.0, and the changing needs of library staff and potential library clients. The project suggested recommendations regarding the potential innovation development strategy and the responsibilities of the different policy levels. What could be a task of the provinces and what could be centralised on the Flemish policy level?

IBBT/SMIT was scientific advisor in this project about the innovative potential of provincial library cataloguing systems in Flanders.
