I have been looking at some of the presentations of Andrew Pace listed at NCSU Libraries Staff Presentations. Andrew is head of systems at NCSU Libraries and writes and presents frequently. In the light of OCLC discussions about ‘unplug and play’, I was interested in his presentation on the disintegrated library system. Also interesting on issues surrounding data in, and leveraged by, the catalog. I do not know Andrew; I realize other colleagues might.
