Hi Neil,

Could you explain what you mean by a 'live data feed into a single form'? Forgive me, I'm not much involved in selection and acquisitions but I'm mildly interested from an LMS/LSP perspective. Are you thinking of a federated search of multiple suppliers' systems, or more like RSS feeds or harvesting of lists of forthcoming publications, perhaps?

OCLC looks to be developing a "Marketplace" in WorldShare https://www.oclc.org/partnerships.en.html#section-marketplace presumably by aggregating records from publishers and retailers, and SirsiDynix has a "BLUEcloud Marketplace" mentioned in a flyer http://www.sirsidynix.com/files/pdf/BLUEcloudCollateralBleed.pdf, but if it exists at all I guess it'll just be public library-focussed e-book aggregators at the moment. I'm not sure how much the major library suppliers like Coutts, YBP and Dawson would welcome this though, as they presumably consider their ordering platforms to fulfil the role of "one stop shop."

Thanks,

Laurence Lockton

Subject: [lis-e-resources] Online ordering forms and integrations with LMS

Dear Colleagues,

I wonder if any of you have worked on adapting a vendor's ordering platform (eg Dawsonera, Oasis, GOBI etc) into a new generation LMS online ordering form (or Primo) - or if this is possible?

We are interested in piping live bibliographic data from a vendor's platform down via API to an ordering form so that our selecting patrons can have a live feed of bibliographic data on formats (ebook, print etc), prices, editions, ISBN etc hosted within the LMS ordering form and place orders for the items within on the LMS ordering form rather than the platform. We're just completing the process of integrating ordering through the Aleph vendor loader system. However this has limitations.

We have given consideration to embedding a vendor's ordering platform within our website and rolling this out as our online ordering form, though this can be problematic in circumstances where the first vendor of choice for ebooks and print are not the same. Also where the first vendor of choice for either format is subject to change over time, then the online form would not be stable and potentially it could confuse patron selectors if we don't have a stable online ordering interface. Accordingly the best solution overall is to pipe down bibliographic data from the preferred vendors into the LMS form. The advantages of this are, we think, obvious, as it will aid with modernising reading list material and allow for vendor discretion in selecting whether they have a preference for E or P, and it would probably greatly improve workflows and turnarounds.

I wonder if any institution out there has done anything similar to this, and if they would be willing to discuss it through with us. Currently we are operating Aleph version 21, however it is likely that we will very soon tender for a new generation LMS. Therefore I would be particularly interested in anyone who has rolled out an acquisitions workflow on the main new generation systems.

Best wishes,

Neil
